After a long day whooshing down Black Diamond runs, settling into a hot tub to ease sore muscles sounds like a dream ending to your day. But what if there's no hot tub available? Well, you're in luck.
Whether you just finished skiing or are fresh off a super-tough gym session, muscle soreness from fatigue or overexertion benefits from a variety of approaches, some of which may surprise you. And while It's always best to take a proactive approach (read: do leg-strengthening exercises before ski season starts or build up to a killer workout slowly), says Yael "Dr. V" Varnado, MD, a New York preventive medicine expert, no one's perfect. And these sore muscle solutions should help.
So try them—and get back on the slopes in no time.
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
