Wondering if there is anything to help with the aches from working out, muscles soreness, tightening of muscles, etc... just general muscle pains. Is there any vitimins or supps to take to help prevent or ease this?
Or is this all about getting big and just to deal with it and eventually it will go away with more lifting experience?

I do try and stretch, I get mixed info about weather to stretch before or after working out... also can anyone recomend a stretch for the lower back..

Stretching and BCAAs can help.

cissus might help as well. It has for me... off and on I take things like glutamine, systemic enzymes (like doms ease or sorenzyme, or just plain bromelain), NO boosters, and also electrolyte mixes before and/or after training.
Also for me: avoiding dairy and wheat has helped lower the overall amount of soreness that I experience as well.

these are a few of my favorite stretches.
any or all of these combined with the standard reach your toes type back and hamstring stretches have worked really well for me.

Try Yoga. You will laugh but it's actually really hard. Really helped me out in many aspects of lifting.

yea yoga is tuff as balls! ... those pics looks like some good stretches ima try them out thanks! Yea I take BCAA before during and afterwards.. I have been told that the pains are just the joys of working out, especially when you start a new routine and will go away. Well I guess thats where the sayin "No pain No gain" comes from huh..

bcaa's and beta alanine work wonders for me, even on the days I weight train, do cardio, then teach and do jiu jitsu- 4 straight hours!

when i have a heavy legs day i usually make a habit of sipping on a couple scoops of Xtend throughout the day. It seems to help recovery pretty well. All the advice so far has been good.... yoga,stretching... i would also suggest pilates. That helped my flexibility a TON. I would recommend doing it while no one is around though, just to avoid the jokes and what not.
Not to get off topic, but does anyone hate the use of the abbreviation "PWO"? pre- and post- both start with P, so when someone says PWO, it really doesn't tell me if they are referring to pre- or post-workout. Kind of random but the thread title made me think of it.

I have taken a lot of stuff, but nothing helps like stretching before and after, and if you got a wifey like mine, you just can't go wrong with massage in the sore area...especially for free.
