So you are feeling sore during the workout, a little tight after but all is good….then BAM two days later stairs are your mortal enemy! If this sounds all too familiar you might be dealing with a bad case of DOMS. In this episode we breakdown the causes of these aches and pains and then explore natural remedies to help ease you back into sitting and standing with no grunts.


In this episode, we cover: 

  • The reason why the stairs or just the simple act of sitting might become your worst nightmare
  • Breaking down DOMS and why it happens and how to prevent it
  • Understanding the importance of a good stretch session to keep your body limber and loose
  • The difference between a muscle ache and a muscle strain and when you need to see a doctor
  • Natural foods that you can use today to help you ease sore muscles
  • Probiotics and why they work
  • How to naturally add more foods to your life that will help with soreness
  • Why a workout isn’t complete without this one thing

3 Main Takeaways:

  • Nothing will beat a good dynamic stretch at the start of a workout and a static stretch at the end. Please if you are going to skip anything to save on time, dont make it your stretch sessions!
  • Knowing the difference between strained muscles and sore muscles is key to ensuring that you are taking proper care of your body. Pay close attention to what your body is saying and if it is 3 days or more consult a doctor as it might be a muscle strain that you should not work through but instead rest and recover.
  • Having natural healing ways to add to your toolbox will only enhance your abilities and help you not only recover faster but feel more confident to push your limitations in each workout.
