“Are You Nuts?” is the first reaction I get when I words such as these about the pain they are feeling in their muscles next day after their training session. If you are someone like me you who has DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) then the pain is lasting more than 24 hours.
Regardless of that, the pain after your training session in the muscle groups you have worked out on is good for muscle growth and reshaping into your newer self. This is because your workout has opened up the muscle fibres stretching the tissues open, therefore, increasing the blood flow in the targeted area. So the pain in the targeted area is now because of the strain it has gone through under the circumstances you have created for your body.
Now to overcome this pain you must remember these important tips-
a) Hydrate your body with regular intake of water so you don’t get craps. A well hydrated body will be refuel you for internal recovery process
b) Nutrition is highly important because this is where you are feeding the targeted muscle groups with macro and micro nutrients such as your good fats, good carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals.
c) Recovery – a simple word yet the most crucial part after your training. You need to give your body enough recovery so it is ready for action the very next day or day after, subject to your training routine. Proper sleep, supplementation and mental rest is crucial.
Only then your body will get the chance to grow into the new physical shape as you want it be. Just by simply focussing on these tips, you can find yourself in a much improved physical, mental and emotional state.
One of the beautiful quotes I read somewhere was – “it takes a hammer, a chisel, a vision and a will to suffer the blows to be carved into one”.
So next time you are feeling your muscles are sore that’s because your muscle are ready to grow. All they need is proper rest, hydration, diet and recognition of the hard work.
