In the past decade, everyone has gone towards the way of the green. The green is a natural,mind and body conscious lifestyle. This means instead of eating meat, you will substitute for more veggies or instead of taking the elevator, you will substitute it for the stairs. With that being said, working out is taking over. Gym memberships are up year by year. More people are going to the gym nowadays then ever and it’s starting to show.
Some people go to the gym to feel good while others go to look good and shredded. If you’re getting jacked, you’re going to be working out hard which usually means being sore. Even if you work out the same muscles every other day, you can become sore by just working out a bit harder. No pain, no gain.
Why are We Sore After Working Out?
Although some people don’t get sore so often, others can. It mostly depends on your workout and hard you go. The more you lift the more you will remain sore. The reason we get sore is because of tears or microscopic damage to our muscle fibers. Those muscles that are affected then get inflamed. This causes the body trigger response to help repair the damage which ends up causing us to be sore and stiff.
How Do we Feel Less Sore?
When you think of how you can feel less sore, you just think of reversing the process of what made you sore to begin with. It’s a bit easier than that. The best way to become less sore is to simply release lactic acid. These are special energy sources that are converted into energy without using oxygen. Overtime, this will build up in your bloodstream quicker than it can burn it off. This is when lactic acid builds up and it’s called lactate threshold. The threshold can vary which is why working out for a long time can help you not become sore. The best way to get rid of your soreness is to stretch your muscles.
Other great ways are to take an ice bath and to drink a good amount of water to stay hydrated.
