    Default So so sore

    Had my first night of boot camp on Tuesday night and have been in so much pain. I have my 2nd night tonight and am really dreading it. I have DH picking me up some voltaren gel and radox but does anyone have any other tips on how to get over the pain quicker?

    Can you fit in a walk between now and the session? It will get the blood moving and warm you up

    Thanks, I was thinking of going for a walk. DH suggested getting on the vibro trainer to help loosen the muscles before I go as well.

    Like Indigo said magnesium. I have one you can put in the bath plus tablets and it helps so much after my PT sessions. All the pain will be worth it for an end result

    Thanks everyone, tonight was a weights rotation so I am incredibly sore but when I got home I soaked in a hot radox bath for 15mins before having a shower and it eased a bit of the pain and just before I put on some voltaren gel and had some magnesium so hopefully tomorrow won't be so bad.

    Not sure if it's possible where you are but going for a swim after any form of exercise helps to remove the lactic acid from your muscles, which is what causes the soreness.

    Swimming isn't really a option I am not sure if the pool is even open but last time I was there it was freezing. I actually had a thought last night about doing yoga in the mornings maybe it will help.
