    Any recommendation for sore muscles after mowing the lawn?

    Yards with a lot of grass to mow, or with hills here and there can be hard to mow.  Well hard on the body sometimes at the beginning of a new season.  Do you have any tips for helping with soreness other than taking some medicine?

    The main thing is stretches. Lots of stretches. Before and after. Even during. I often mow the yard or yards in sections. When I do that I make sure to take a break and stretch. After I am done I either take a hot shower or I rinse off and go jump in my friends hot tub.

    Other than what selene383 said you should drink a lot of water. Dehydration can cause muscle soreness along with other problems.

    I have found from experience with a back injury and the resulting pain and back muscles that wanted to spasm was using heat and cold to control back muscle pain. By heat and cold I mean you can use hot or warm showers or heat pads and ice packs. Eventually, using the two methods you can fine tune which method or combination of methods works best.
