Help Me, I’m Sore – A Simple Trick To Toss the Soreness

Help Me, I'm Sore - A Simple Trick To Toss the Soreness

By Taylor Robbins, C.S.C.S
 
So, getting sore is a double-edged sword.
 
It feels awesome because then you know, “Hey, I actually did something in my workout.”
 
On the other hand, it can suck because it’s expensive to install handrails in the bathroom next to your toilet.
 
A simple trick to decreasing the soreness so you can get back to the gym, train hard again, and keep moving towards your goals, (not to mention taking a crap without screaming as you sit down) is to have Taurine and BCAA’s (branched chain amino acids) into your nutrition.
 
A 2013 study showed that not just BCAA’s but taurine and BCAA’s helps reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) more than just BCAA’s alone or neither supplement at all.
 
The optimal intake we recommend and see as beneficial is 5g of taurine and 10g of BCAA’s 20 minutes before you train and 5g of taurine and 10g of BCAA’s while you train.
 
So, add these supps to your regime and you can throw out the walkers and train hard again.
