    anything good for extreme muscle soreness


    I worked out legs yesterday, and did squats. Nothing heavey yet today my legs could barley move. My muscle ache deep in the tissue right above knees to hip. I know I didn't overtrain but just hadn't done squats in years. Is there anything good to help relieve the soreness

    I wouldnt look to supplements to cure the soreness, rest is your best friend. As far as recovery glutamine.

    Yup, I agree you need to rest and give your body the time to recovery. If the pain starts to bother you then take some ibuprofen since it is an anti-inflammatory. Glutamine helps too not sure how much at this point. Try to stretch the muscle and take warm shower.

    My recommendation is to take Glutamine, BCAA either during or right after your workout to ensure better recovery. Waiting after the pain starts the following day makes it hard for any supplement to help. Make sure you take either a good Intra-workout supplement or Post-workout supplement as they work to ensure your recovery gets improved.

    creatine and beta alanine
    try adding some quick carbs to your post workout shake like a banana or some honey
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    PeptoPro for the win. A hot Epsom salt and baking soda soak always works for me.

    I like your thinking. MAP (PPs' Peptopro product) has made such a difference in my training. I can go carb free after training with 2 scoops of MAP and 5g BCAA and then a whole-food meal 45 minutes later and be G2G.

    lol, i tried this for a while and couldnt tell if it was placebo or if it was really helping. its good at preventing razor burn, tho. although it burns the %^&* out of any tiny abrasions. i looked around for bloodwork with transdermal mag but couldnt find anything. is it safe to add some dmso with this stuff?

    I guess you could, its not going to give you muscles but will increase strength and recovery along adrenals. Mike Mahler, me and another AM member have had great results from using it. I use Ancient Minerals mag oil.

    I just got on the BCAA wagon (yeah, I'm late) so not a lot of experience there yet, but a hot epsom salt bath has always helped me considerably.

    Massages
    EAAs (aminos)
    Stretching & active recovery
    food & protein

    in other words, the more you move around the quicker the pain will pass

    as far as supplements dose your BCAA and glutamine high, but i tihnk its mainly just part of training man, i know muscle soreness for me was always lightened the day after i did some cardio or a light workot to flush the muscles with blood and remove the lactic acid..... but glutamine and BCAA at a higher dose will prevent the soreness from getting so bad in the first place
