    I just got back in to the gym this week after about a year of being lazy and now I'm sore as fuck.

    If it's damage sore take it easy, if it's work sore ... just work through it.

    I'm sure you'll get some great answers ...

    Yeah that's exactly what I have been doing after workouts, I can't even move my arms and legs barely right now. I went to CVS to see if they had anything the Pharmacist recommended taking a salt bath, anyone try this?

    A year off?

    Work through it. It'll eventually subside after a few weeks into it.

    epsom salt helps, you have to use half of a half gallon carton of epsom salt. I bought the R.E.V brand, (the green one) the have them in the first aid aisle at cvs

    Work through it. Working out will actually help lose the soreness sooner.

    I can't seem to find the time these days to do this... but I used to follow every workout with a protein/creatine shake, 15min in the hot tub, and then 10min in the sauna. (in addition to stretching routines of course).

    Doing this is like a night and day difference in how sore I am compared to now (when I can't do that).

    I hope to get back on that routine soon. It's just hard to schedule 2+ hours in the gym between lifting, cardio, hot tub, sauna, shower.
