Have you ever had one of those workouts that just hurts? The ones that will give you delayed onset muscles soreness and have you wobbling down the hallway for days?
Those are some of my favorite workouts. However, sometimes the D.O.M.S. are close to injury and can incapacitate you for a few days.
How to avoid these problems? Try taking a few of the following supplements â€“ all natural from your body â€“ to help your body to a speedy recovery and avoid further possible injuries.
Glutamine â€“ Glutamine is an amino acid that will help to support the function of your immune system as well as the repair of your muscles. Amino acids are essential to helping your body to a speedy and full recovery -Â helping you make gains in the weight room instead of keeping you out of the weight room. You can add glutamine to your diet through high protein foods such as chicken or turkey. Or you can take a supplement such as Xtend â€“ adding a bit to your water during your workout will help speed recovery.
Magnesium â€“ During a sweat session at the gym your body secretes magnesium among a host of other things. Big deal right? Well, actually it is! Since your body is sweating it out it is necessary for you to put it back in. Adding about 500-1000mg of magnesium a day to your diet will help your body recover â€“ preventing muscle soreness and cramps. Best time of day to take magnesium â€“ right before bed! It will not only help your muscles relax but you as well â€“ giving you a deeper slumber.
Adding these two supplements to your daily diet will help prevent muscle soreness and possible injury. Allowing you to work even harder in the gym.
