Tips to Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals

Let’s start this article by looking at how exercise affects your body, the natural recovery process it goes through, and the food, drink, and herbs that can help support you before, during, and after a workout.

Every time you engage in exercise, the soreness you feel is localized muscle fiber damage that your body sustains—but that’s totally normal. This process is called delayed-onset muscle soreness, or DOMs. DOMs happens when your muscles lengthen while force (i.e. resistance training, cardio, etc.) is applied to them.

In order to build-up more muscle so that your body can handle future strenuous activities, it needs to repair the damage that has been done to your muscles to make them bigger and stronger.

If you’re not refueling your body properly or taking enough time to rest between workouts, you may be negatively impacting your body’s natural recovery processes. So let’s dive in and see how you can do things the right way.
