    husband and I have stumbled across something that works for us when we suffer from extreme body aches after working out...esp. if we try a new routine or have stopped working out for a little while and are re-starting.

    We use variations of these things...or sometimes all of them.

    1. Emergen-C
    We like a new one we found....Pink Lemonade with- 1,000 mg of Vitamin C.
    We mix it with Diet 7 UP or Sprite. It is delicious. It has a lot of B Vitamin, Vitamin C, and 7 Minerals.
    This little drink tastes yummy and seems to give a tiny bit of energy.

    2. Add Naproxen

    3. Take a bath with Epsom Salts

    Hopes this works for someone. This works very well for us!!!!:D

    Sounds great. I also find that if I take a couple of Advil right before I go to bed it helps with the inflammation and I don't wake up so stiff. I asked my doctor about doing that, and he told me, "Actually, that's a pretty good idea".
