I have been increasing strength training and I get stiff and sore the next morning after some workouts. Aside from taking a pain reliever or soaking in Epsom is there other techniques to help minimize soreness and stiffness or maybe prevent it? I drink a lot of water and my protein levels are where they need to be. Or just suck it up and deal ;) because it means I'm making progress?

LMAO!!!! HOW funny! Definitely the BEST answer, Christin........and my kind of workout!
Sadly I have to disagree on the starting workouts at a lower level and making them over a longer period of time- The soreness achieved the days proceeding a workout is related to the stresses your body is put through. Whether elite or beginner
The answer was obviously made in jest Cycling and quite funny actually. Thanks for your information below :) I'll check out your hub.
Christin, I give up! When I try to be funny I'm taken seriously, when I want to be taken seriously I'm laughed at! You surprised me! I never thought I'd get best answer for being funny but I was basking in the glory...until CF commented :-)
I took the initial statements seriously as your advice wasn't ideal for any exerciser reading this piece Don't Taze Me Bro and therefore had switched off before even taken in the humour attempts. Definitely NOT best answer on a professional level.
It's good to take life in stride - and humor is a part of that. I think most reading this know it's a joke and laughter is the best medicine. You can tell immediately it's not serious and there other helpful answers below. Smile - life's short :)
See what I mean, I try to be funny and people turn off, then they say my humor is just an "attempt at humor"! I get no respect, but on a professional level I am getting good at self depracating. LOL :)
Definitely a good idea - the electrolytes definitely have to be replaced after more vigorous workouts. Definitely can't hurt :)
Very true, I should get better about stretching before and after - I kind of don't do that and that obviously contributes to the stiffness. Otherwise, yep - guess I'll get through it :)
Great information - thank you! I'll be sure to check out your hubs :)
I have never sat in a sauna actually. May have to try it someday :)
