Daily Wellness Tip (4/11/12)
by Racer X Virtual Trainer
If you overdid it at your new group-cycling or boot-camp class, you may want to make your next stop the massage parlor. Getting a rubdown after your workout can help reduce muscle inflammation and pain and keep you from hobbling around the following day. This is especially good news for people who don’t take over-the-counter pain relievers. According to the study, massages help stimulate cellular changes that deactivate inflammatory proteins, resulting in less pain. Regardless of the reason, we’re just happy for an excuse to get pampered — and if that makes us hit the gym first, that’s just icing on the cake.
That's it for now, until next time, good luck with your training and remember, if you have a question, log on to the Virtual Trainer Expert Forum and have your question answered by a panel of experts.
