Does movement or further training help against sore muscles?

Question by Guest | 2018-06-05 at 12:16

Sometimes I have some muscle aching after exercising. A colleague of mine has now claimed that you just need to continue training or should move in general, then the soreness would automatically go away, or at least disappear faster.

Personally, I have not yet had the experience that this would have any effect. Does anyone know more? Is there something to this rumor?

To my knowledge, that is nonsense. Once you have sore muscles, you can hardly train it away.

However, generally, against sore muscles helps to do a lot of sports. Maybe that's what he means. Those who generally move and exercise a lot are less prone to sore muscles. Only unfamiliar, new or very long training sessions lead to sore muscles then. On the other hand, those who do training often and do not overestimate the training can prevent sore muscles.

I think that the rumor comes from the fact that one is distracted by further movement and therefore the pain is indeed present, but one no longer consciously thinks about it.

Subjectively, this creates the impression that further exercise relieves the pain.
