People who have worked out must have this experience: you feel so comfortable after exercising and feel in love with fitness. However, when you wake up the next day, a great sense of soreness comes up, and you don’t want to move anymore.
Not only exercise, if you:
- Sitting motionless in front of the computer for a long time.
- Shopping in the mall for a whole day in high heels.
- Take a long-distance flight over four hours.
- Two large boxes were moved upstairs from the express station.
All of these may cause body soreness. In addition to poor posture can cause muscle soreness, failure to relax the muscles in time may also cause soreness. Therefore, relaxing the muscle in time is also very effective for improving muscle soreness.
Why do you want to relax your muscles?
This has to start with the composition of muscles.
You can think of muscles as a lot of thin copper wires bundled into copper wires, and then countless copper wires are wrapped together to become electric wires, and finally these wires are bundled up to become cables.
The outer layer that wraps them is the fascia.
Muscles and fascia play a very important role in our daily life and are used all the time.
Dynamic stretching of muscles before exercise can prevent sports injuries. Relaxing in time after exercise can also accelerate muscle recovery and discharge metabolic waste.
But relaxing muscles should not be the privilege of exercise. If you maintain a posture for a long time, such as sitting for a long time, the muscles will become stiff, and you need to help them relax at this time.
What happens if you don’t relax your muscles in time?
Only when the muscles are relaxed can they have better flexibility, and good flexibility can bring about the coordination of the body. Failure to relax the muscles may increase the risk of injury.
If the daily posture is incorrect and causes some muscle tension, the posture will also be affected over time. For example, often bending over to work can easily lead to round shoulders and hunchback; The habit of walking on tiptoes may cause thick legs.
If you do not relax your muscles after exercise, you may first have some delayed muscle soreness, and once muscle injury and tension accumulate, it will erupt and cause severe pain one day.
How to relax the muscles?
- Static stretching
Stretching is important for muscle relaxation. What’s more, stretching after exercise can also play a role in strengthening the training effect.
You can follow the stretching courses on exercise software and take time to train every day. What you need to pay attention to is to keep breathing naturally when stretching, and do not hold your breath. Stretch each muscle for about 30 seconds, and you don’t need too much strength, just feel the muscle pulling sensation.
- Partial massage
Massage is more effective for muscle relaxation. If possible, come to major health care regularly and ask professionals to massage. Or perform acupressure at home and use your fingers to pinch the tired muscles. The only drawback is that it is more difficult.
