    If only more people looked at it like that....I think we'd have a lot more healthy people.

    HM, as many have mentioned above, the pos-workout time frame is the most critical to aid in mitigating soreness. On the physical side of things, proper stretching is the key, you can google lots of stretches for all miscle groups. Nutritionally, protein is the key. Look for a complete protein supplement that has atleast 20g of protein, BCAA’s, glucosamine amd other vitamins and essential minerals. I prefer Optimum Nutrition’s protein powders. Also be sure to combine about 20-30g of high-glycemic carbs via either dextrose mixed right into the shake or maybe even a handful of pretzels (watch the salt). Without the fast digesting carbs to shuttle the protein to your muscles you risk not re-fueling your muscles. Slugz also has good advice about foam rolling, it’s very effective especially with leg soreness from running, squating, etc. As other have also mentioned your body is junk in, junk out. In other words, clean up your diet and every aspect of your fitness will improve. Consistency with both fitness and diet will pay dividends! Hope this helps, Feel free to ask if you’d like some more info regarding training/diet.
