How to Effectively Reduce Muscle Soreness After Working Out

Last year I took a break from lifting (it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be). Boy, was my body happy! I focused most of that time on yoga and low-impact activity. Reducing muscle soreness was just not a big deal last year, until I decided to go back to lifting. But first, the reason for the break: My body just wasn't recovering as quickly. I was tired all the time. And I had chronic inflammation. Naturally, when...
