Feeling sore

It may seem counter-intuitive, but exercise actually helps muscle soreness. According to a new study done in Denmark, exercise can help reduce the aches from working out as well as a massage can. You can no longer use the excuse that you cannot work out again because you feel too sore as a light workout will actually result in you feeling better. They key, however, is to not overdue it. For example, the day after weight training you should not lift the same weight but rather do the same exercises at a much lower intensity. There are other ways to help with soreness as well. Omega-3s and dynamic stretching can also help you bounce back to your normal self. Don’t let soreness get in the way of your fitness, and try one of these methods to get back out there.
