The dreaded morning after

Hey y'all. I went boarding for the first time the season after a super short season last year. i went maybe six times total. anywho, i wake up this morning and im hella sorw. I dont consider myself a beginner by any means. More along the lines of intermediate/advanced. Im completely used to the soreness, but im wondering what i can do to use it to my advantage. anything i can do to speed up the healing process or use it to build muscle even quicker? foods i can eat, stretches i can do and such? icy hot is my best friend at the moment, due to the sloppy conditions and few nasty crashes i had yesterday. Any suggestions or tips are welcome.

Pain killers, I'm old and they're the only things that work!

I pop ibuprofen after a session to prevent the soreness the following day. If I'm on a trip where I'm going to be riding hard for multiple days then I take it before the session, and later that day after the session.

I still have morphine, Valium & Vicodine left over from my spine surgeries. I have a feeling they'll come in handy this season!

Hot bath can help. And slowly building up muscles before your season starts. And take it easy the first days.

I never had and never would take painkillers against something like sore muscles, irritating thought TBH well, I actually like the tired itching feel of sore muscles; gives a pleased feeling of having done something .

If you get cramps after - or while - exercising, however, take a magnesium supplement for quick relief and eat magnesium rich meals with e.g. oatmeal, lentil or other legumes to avoid next time.

Thumbs up

Stretching right after the session, pop a protein shake. Also exercise regularly, squats and a stair master while wearing a heavy backpack will prep your thighs for that dons.

If the soreness is from falls then advil or something like that would be great. If it's soreness from using your muscles then just eat protein after working out. Once your muscles are used to it then your soreness will go away as your muscles will be used to it.
