Something to think about.
Aching is the logical consequence of a training session more intensive than usual.
Until recently, people believed that aching was due to residues of lactic acid in the muscles after intensive or unusual effort.
Which is not the case.
Lactic acid is eliminated within minutes after the physical effort.
In actual fact, the muscular fibres suffer microtears.
Sitting on a chair.
The pain is due to this tear and its repair.
Everyone knows that aspirin thins the blood, but has nothing to do with lactic acid. Aspirin, however, relieves some of the pain caused by these tears.
Ah! preconceived ideas!
Massaging helps you to recuperate and prevents contractures.
Almost vital for beginners, or when resuming training at the start of the season, light sessions working a wide range of muscular groups are recommended.
