Soak in a warm bath and rest today. If it’s that bad, aspirin might help The pain is caused by excess production of lactic acid, which is a byproduct of cellular metablolism. About the only thing you can do is take hot baths, stretch gently and take something like ibuprofen. It will go away by itself.You did too much exercising for your fitness level. When you go back to the gym, put in less time for each exercise, and do a greater variety of exercises. that’s good pain that means u worked hard and your muscles are getting a good working no pain no gain the more u do it the better it will get.

the pain is so deep that you wont fully relieve the muscle pain. try icy hot rub or patch and some advil. remember no pain no gain. this is perfectly natural..all this means is you did what your supposed to do..the only way to build muscle is to tear/scar the muscle fibres (hence the pain)..rest for today and then go to the gym again tomorrow or tuesdayand start with light weights to streatch your muscles and then continue as you did yesterday
Massage, or go to the chemist, superdrug, boots etc and look for some muscle relief cream.Remember, always have a day off after an intensive work out otherwise the pain will be dreadful.
I use Aleive when my muscles get sore. Try using it before you go to the gym next time. You will be surprised when your muscles don’t hurt so much after wards. Drink lots of water to flush out the lactic acid and take some ibuprofen to take the edge off.
I think the best way is to take a loooooong HOT shower. It helps alot. Then a couple of ibuprofen. After you go to the gym a couple of times it’ll go away. perhaps massaging a bit will helpbut remember not to wait too long before resuming even it hurts, or else more of your effort will be wasted
What you need to do is first of all drink a lot of water! When you get any kind of body work done like massage or you work out you need to drink half of your body weight in 24 hours. It might sound like a lot of water but you will actually re-hydrate your muscles and flush out toxins that was built up in your muscles. So you can also try to go get a massage to help increase the circulation to the areas that are sore, you can take a hot bath that will also increase the circulation. And to add a little something for your muscles you can add rosemary oil in your bath-it’s great for muscles! Good luck n remember it’s a good sore so go back to the gym! Try Icy Hot
a535, or just have a beer or two. relax. Have a hot bath. But the important thing about exercise is that you MUST warm up and cool down before & after exercise. Stretching your muscles prior to exercise is vital, as is cooling down post exercise. Just 10 minutes of each will make the difference. As your body gets more used to exercise it will get easier and less painful. Your muscles have a buildup of toxins from your first exercise. Lots of water flushes out the toxins. Aspirin will ease the aches and pains. A hot bath or shower will loosen you up, too. More exercise will first feed the pain, then flush out the muscle cells with fresh blood, then cause new soreness tomorrow. After a week of exercise, this soreness phase will pass. Exercise every other day to allow your body time to rebuild. Drink lots of fluids every day (beer and cokes don’t count!) and while you exercise. Stretch before and after to push the toxins out of your newly exercised muscles and to stretch your muscles so you don’t turn into a clenched fist all the time. Stretch first, then start slowly in your exercise, build up a good heart rate (you will be shiny with sweat and on your second wind) and keep that for up twenty or thirty minutes to an hour, then finally stretch again to end the session. Work to perfect your movements in your exercises. Work out for 1-2 hours three times a week. Keep a diary. Source(s):Years at the Y.
