First and foremost, newcomers or even regular participants of strength training, face the realities of sore muscles. So, it’s best to know how to recover quickly in order to get back to building muscles.
Now, the following exercises may help your sore muscles get better.
Most of all, it’s our desire for muscle growth that usually results in sore muscles. Now, there may be misconceptions among some that muscle damage (and hence sore muscles) is needed for muscle growth. However, research shows that muscle damage is not needed for muscle growth.
Meanwhile, getting sore muscles doesn’t mean there is muscle damage. In fact, research also shows that getting sore muscles is not a reliable indicator of muscle damage. So, while there may be no muscle damage, sore muscles may interfere with your strength training program.
Most of all, strength training usually results in microscopic tears in muscle, or even a breakdown in muscle tissue. So, in response to these microscopic tears, the body uses satellite cells to repair the tears and build up muscles over time. In addition, muscles get protected against future damage.
Furthermore, to help your body repair and grow muscles, it’s important to have enough protein in your diet. Finally, your muscles need rest for this process to succeed.
