It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned fitness guru or a beginner there are times when you will have sore muscles after a workout.
I know for myself the first week of classes after we’ve had a bit of a break is always a bit of a muscle kicker. I usually do not workout during the breaks between class sessions as this is my self care. But there are still times when even a new round in a class will kick my butt and make me feel it for the next day or so.
My biggest tip would be a hot bath or shower (obviously with your beverage of choice 😘😁) and then stretch out any soreness with either DownDog,
and Child’s Pose with arms.
Start off at 15 secs each side and do that a few times until it feels better then move up your time to say 25/30 secs etc.)
If you are an essential oil person I’ve tried a few combinations but the tried and true one that has never let me or my family down is this one:
10 drops peppermint
10 drops lavender
10 drops copaiba
10 drops PanAway
10 drops of Wintergreen (Optional for those really really bad aches!)
Your choice of carrier oil
Also – DON’T QUIT just because you have sore muscles – this will pass. If you quit each time you have sore muscles the cycle will repeat itself so you are best off just to push through. 😔😎
