Still in your workout clothes, fill bathtub with cold water, sit there for 10 minutes, have someone put 2 dozen ice cubes in tub. You may want to yell and scream but it will good for your legs.

Its call D.O.M.S , delayed onset muscle syndrome.

D.O.M.S usually takes about 72 hrs before it goes away. Treatment is targeted towards increasing blood flow to the muscles. This includes low-intensity exercise, hot bath or a massage. I know when i first began working out my muscles would be sore for days (especially with intense workouts). So I started using a foam roller to massage the muscles it works great. Many physical therapists use it to patient with sore, stiff, or knotted muscles. Check out ab-workouts-guide.com/foam-roller, you can find out how you can use the foam roller to alleviate the soreness. Good luck and God Bless!

How many sets/reps are you doing? Usually its from over exertion. There's also something called "blood pooling" which can be painful that occurs after rigorous leg exercise. Drink plenty of water, and stretch afterwards to prevent.

Thanks Jason but its was D. O.M.S. because when I workout last night on my legs the soreness has slightly gone. Still feel a little but not like it was a first.

Be sure to always stretch before and after working out. There's no way to actually make the soreness go away, but eating lots of calcium will get your blood flowing, and slightly prevent soreness the next time you workout. Remember to stay hydrated!

Thanks Brittany. I have to keep that in mine stretch ing before I start my workout but I did stretch I lastnight before I started my routine I think that help a lot too. What is good stretching workout for my legs and for the body.:-):-):-):-)

For your soreness right now, defiantly try some slow, steady mountain climbers, and slow v stretches. Mountain climbers help your stability and endurance. V stretches stretch out your entire leg for flexibility. Start out slow, and don't over do it. Hope these help. :)

Thanks Brittany. I am going to try this in just a second.:-):-):-):-)
