Any good training session should irritate the muscle tissues. This cause the muscles involved to feel uncomfortable, sore, fatigued with dull aches for a few days after. This formula developed by Bulgarians to balance the PH levels with the cells, assist in restoring glucose stores and ATP protection. The process to recovery and easing of muscle soreness has varying stages. These are necessary to help increase maximum workout gains and reduce muscle soreness.
1. Cool Down ensuring you do at least 6mins as this helps your muscles recover ATP stores.
2. Rest between 8-10 hrs after rigorous workouts, especially for persons training at a professional level.
3. Massage is a vital part of recovery after a workout that many of us neglect, a simple basic massage or even self massage can work.
4. Cold& Hot Alternating Showers this should be performed after a workout in the following sequence Cold/Hot/Cold/Hot (cold/30 sec —hot 1min.)
This method I have personally tried, used with several clients as well as bodybuilders and other athletes. It does eliminate soreness completely but reduces the intensity of sorness felt.
