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.

  1. Drink a lot of water.  Water helps to remove the lactic acid build that occurs which results in soreness.
  2. I stretch (before and after my workouts).  To relieve muscle tightness, I am constantly stretching.
  3. 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.

Here’s episode 6 of the Goddess Legs 3-90 Workout Series.  Enjoy!
