Kicking the laziness away, at last you signed up in a gym. Met your life’s first fitness trainer. At the very first day promised yourself to change your body’s geography totally. Started with great enthusiasm too. But within days, all can be ruined just for one cause, muscle soreness.
Those who are not engaged with physical exercise from an early age, after starting suddenly, they may face this issue. It’s quite normal for them to feel ache in one or multiple parts of the body. No need to panic, no need to lose hope. It’s a natural but regular part of the whole exercise cycle. Within few days, the soreness will be gone and your body will come to your total control. And if you want to achieve that more earlier, here’s some tips for you.
Eat and drink enough protein and water :
Lack of protein in body makes your muscles weak. As a result, they can bear the unusual movements occur at the time of exercise, thus creates pain. Try to keep fish, peanut, egg, yogurt, meat in your daily food menu as much as you can. These all vast resource of protein. Also drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise. Dehydration is also partially responsible for muscles’ weakness.
Ice bath :
In our childhood, when we got hurt while playing or else, we used to put ice on that specific area. This helps to reduce the lump and take back the muscle of that area to the regular shape. If you face soreness while exercising, take a bath of 15-20 minutes in icy water. It’s also a very common practice applied by athletes.
Muscle movement :
At the time of exercising, all the muscle have to expand and shrink at different directions. Many muscles can’t keep balance with that unexpected movement and create soreness. Now the easiest way to pacify that, just to do the opposite. Again start moving your muscles in the same way in same directions, but this time ‘slowly and gently’. The displaced muscles will return back to their normal position soon and the pain will start reducing. You can practice this before starting the main exercise too. It will help the muscles to adjust with the later sequences in advance.
Keep doing daily activities :
Except heavy tasks, keep continuing your regular activates, in home and outside. Like the previous tip, it also will help your shifted muscles to find their old home.
