Shocking your leg muscles with a new set of intense exercises are sure to come with some soreness. Here are three things that I do to help my leg muscles recover from my trainings, both on and off the field.
- Drink a lot of water. Water helps to remove the lactic acid build that occurs which results in soreness.
- I stretch (before and after my workouts). To relieve muscle tightness, I am constantly stretching.
- Hop in an ice bath. I know it is not fun, and quite a bit painful at first, but once I get out of a 20 minute sit in the tub, my legs feel brand new.
