4 Ways to Ditch Muscle Soreness Faster

If you have ever walked into a weight room or put yourself through an intense cardio session, you know that feeling when you wake up the next day and your body feels sore all over. Muscle soreness is caused by microtears in the tissue from the resistance and physical stress you placed on your body. These microtears are harmless and are a part of the growth and strengthening process. Do you need to put up with soreness after every workout? No!

Let’s take a look at 4 easy ways to ditch your muscle soreness so you can get back to the gym!

  1. Ice and Heat

The first thing you want to do to alleviate muscle soreness is to use both ice and heat.


Heat can help soothe the soreness by drawing blood flow to the area. This will help to enhance the delivery of nutrients needed for repair. Make sure to switch up with an ice pack as the cold will help to reduce the inflammation associated with the soreness.


You can use each type of pack for up to 15 minutes at a time. Give yourself a break in between and strive to do this rotation at least 3 times per day.


  1. Get Active

While it may seem counterproductive, engaging in a light physical activity can help to reduce the soreness. Instead of your intense workout routine, try taking a brisk walk, going for a swim, or performing a light workout using a fraction of your normal weight. The idea is to get the blood flowing to help eliminate the buildup of lactic acid, a compound thought to be responsible for that sore feeling you have.


  1. Light Stretching

After your walk or swim, be sure to engage the muscle in a light stretch. You don’t need to shoot for glory here. A simple stretch that takes the muscle to the point of being able to feel it is fine. Don’t try to over extend or push the muscle past its limits. You can mix up both dynamic stretching and static stretching. A good example would be to do light jumping jacks followed by a bent over hamstring stretch.
