When your muscles are sore after a workout, it can feel really validating. No pain, no gain, right? Post-workout muscle soreness is a common reaction to training. When your muscles work hard, they’ll naturally feel a bit fatigued afterward but eventually they’ll become stronger once your body properly recovers.
Muscle stiffness typically occurs after exercise, hard physical work, or lifting weights. You may also feel stiffness after periods of inactivity, like when you get out of bed in the morning or get out of a chair after sitting for a long time. Muscle stiffness usually goes away on its own. You may find relief with regular exercise and stretching.
These things may help ease some of the symptoms:
