Eight Great Muscle-Soothing Workout Tips

Drinking Water During Exercise

Whether you're hitting the cardio hard or pumping some iron, if a work out is truly effective, you'll feel it - both during your exercises and afterward. For some, it can be enough to dissuade them from continuing a regular exercise routine. Metabolic Research Center offers these tips to help soothe your post-workout muscle pain and soreness, ensuring you'll stick with it.

  1. Before your workout, enjoy a low-fat, high-carb snack with a bit of protein, and drink a cup of caffeinated tea or coffee to help boost muscular strength and endurance.
  2. Warm up with a bit of pre-workout cardio and stretching to properly prep your muscles and joints.
  3. Don't stop moving during your workout. Keep a constant, steady pace so that fresh blood continues pumping, delivering repairing oxygen to your taxed muscles.
  4. Keep that water bottle with you and stay hydrated with a few swigs at least once every 15 minutes.
  5. If you're a heavy sweater, down an electrolyte-infused sports drink during or immediately after your workout. They deliver essential salts that help to regulate heartbeat, nerve function and muscular contractions.
  6. Close out your exercise session with a good stretch and a foam roller massage to help boost blood flow back to your muscles and knead out any knots.
  7. Immediately post-workout, down a snack with a 4:1 ration of carbs to protein to restore spent nutrients.
  8. Wrap it all up with a cold post-workout shower to reduce muscle inflammation.

Almost 13 lbs down and just about 4 inches off my belly in a little more than a month. I'm fitting into clothes I haven't worn in years.
