What to Do If You're Sore After a Workout

Working out sure is rewarding, but a day or two later, you're super sore. So, what do you do? Do you continue to exercise? Do you rest? Is there something you can eat to alleviate the pain?

Bob Harper explains what you can do to help alleviate pain if your workout really threw your body for a loop.

1. This is key: Drink a lot of water and stay hydrated.

2. Try anti-inflammatory foods. One great one is ginger root, which you can throw into tea or hot water.

3. Schedule your workouts in intervals. Harper recommends working out for three days and taking one day off. You can fight through those three days knowing you get the fourth off.
