What is the best way to treat soreness after a workout?


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?

    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 :)
