How to relief muscle pain caused by push ups?
Everybody feels lot of pain when he / she starts push ups. How to relief muscle pain?
I think it's common to experience some soreness when working out. I work out several times a week with and without weights, and if you feel some soreness then you know you're challenging your body, and it will go away after a day or so. If you're in pain, that's a different story, then you can take Tylenol/acetaminophen, and apply some pain gel.
If its just minor soreness, I keep exercising, and be sure to eat a little protein before and after workout. I had some discomfort recently from doing too many plank push-ups, so I went easy for a couple days and did extra stretching.
Hope that helps.
If you are experiencing pain that requires some type of medicinal relief, then you are doing too many pushups. The muscles require adequate oxygen to provide the stability to complete a pushup. If you are experiencing tenderness, this means you are not providing the proper amount of oxygen to them. When beginning any exercise routine, it is better to go slow and so when you find yourself uncomfortable with the number of reps you are doing, then you are doing too many. Additionally, if you are working the upper body one day and the lower body the next, you should be consuming 1 and 1/2 gallons of water during the day and an additional 8 ounces for a 30 minute exercise routine or 16 to 24 ounces during the exercise period of 1 hour. This will keep the body hydrated and capable of capturing the oxygen necessary to complete your routine. While many talented exercise trainers work to complete the repetitions necessary to tone the body, few actually work on the consumption of water necessary to provide the body with the most important items that make the exercise tolerable. Those being water and oxygen. So, work on your drinking and breathing so that they properly support your bodies needs.
I've never been one to do push ups but whenever I get sore anywhere for a new activity I use: hot shower, aspirin, sometimes an herbal oil or rub (which take weeks to prepare so I won't bore you with recipes), and lots of light stretching in between.
Not any expert, but I know soreness at the time of exercise when muscles are exerted it is due to lactate acid and oxygenation. That again is when the muscles are being worked. I believe that is why less reps and more sets is recommended when beginning. Or, that at least is how it was explained to me when cross training for cross country / track during college.
The soreness after exerting muscles the next day is a different event taking place with the muscles. The muscles are not requiring the transformation of glucose for energy along with oxygenation. It could be said they are simply sore and rest is needed for recuperation. Or, as is suggested a minimum of one day and best two days between exercising the same muscle groups again.
Tylenol works for me with muscle pains and so does Alieve. That of course IMHO is tricking the brain essentially. I am not an expert in the field of pain. Another oddity to consider if you like to ponder stuff is the location of the brain for pain does not care if it is emotional pain or physical pain. Pain is simply pain.
But, oddly studies are being conducted to determine if emotional pain triggers sensations of physical pain as a mechanism for relief psychologically speaking. Or, there is an emotional pain and it is manifested as a physical pain.
Maybe it hurt emotionally when working out and it is manifested physical. Or, just speculating the emotional pain of not being as strong as once or as thought would like to be (reality principal) is actually painful emotionally.
It is experienced through the body exercised with memory of pain - lactoses. The pain of the exercising when lactoses does occur is remembered in the pain center of the brain and felt at that body part later while emotionally dealing with that reality of weakness (reality principal).
As strengthening the muscles occurs with more being achieved and much easier, well, confidence occurs. Lactoses is lessened as the process of metabolizing glucose and oxygenation changes. As confidence occurs emotional pain is lessened offering less or no after effects of pain. One becomes stronger overcoming pain both physically and emotionally. The pain center does not care since pain is pain.
Remember I am not an expert of these things. Those suggested above are speculative from reading over the years. And, most certainly insert the typical disclaimer here
Oh the burn of pushups. I know the feeling. I usually get in a hot shower right after a workout but also a good stretch and high protein meal and later that night take an ice cold bath or shower. I know it sounds miserable, but it can be very satisfying if you have sore muscle and you don't have to be in very long. A couple minutes submerged is good.
Sore muscles are typically caused by the tearing down of the muscle fibers during workouts or strenuous physical activities. Lactic acid builds up in our muscles, and swelling can actually occur.
Most people recommend pain relievers, etc. However, you should be sure you haven't caused serious injury to yourself. Your question doesn't specify where the pain is. If it is between pectoral muscles, or in your shoulder joints, you may need to see a doctor.
If you don't think you need to see a doctor, I can tell you what I do: Drink LOTS of water. This will help flush out the lactic acid buildup. I also agree with Erin Nichols (below), who advised a high protein meal. Our bodies need protein to rebuild muscle tissue. I also take fish oil, and calcium with vitamin d, and also biotin.
