DOMS - how to get rid of them quickly?

Appearing sour muscles is a signal to take care of your muscles and body during exercise. What are sour muscles and how to get rid of them quickly? Here are some simple and effective ways!

What are sore muscles and how to get rid of them quickly?

Sore muscles are a state of pain experienced during exercise. During the activity hypoxia of muscle cells occurs, which contributes to an increase in the concentration of lactic acid. Its high level causes acidification of working muscles. Therefore, the correct acid-base balance is disturbed and the pH value decreases. Acidification is very often accompanied by an increase in muscle tension.


So the question remains: how can we quickly get rid of sore muscles? The key is to take appropriate action before and during training to prevent the excessive increase in lactic acid concentration. What does this involve?

  • Optimal hydration of the body before exercise and regular fluid intake during exercise
  • maintaining a diversified nutrition - especially with regard to electrolyte management and essential minerals due to their excessive loss with perspiration
  • restoring the optimal pH value of working muscles, e.g. by means of suitably selected supplements
