It's part of training. My question is:
How do you deal with delayed onset muscle soreness? Do you take ibuprofen or other OTC pain reliever? Take a soak in a hot tub? Stretch more? Spend some time with Yoga practices? Meditation? Or just suck it up?
Protein and amino acids. Will help stretching is a must! I personally dont take otc pain relievers. I read that they slow muscle growth, they may or may not. The more you exercise the more your body will get used to it
