I hope this belongs here and not in the off topic section. What do y'all use for sore muscles?

I have something I got from a trainer that is commonly referred to as "heat". I don't know if a commercial variety exist.

i played in 12 degree weather yesterday was sore from head to toe. I came home..showered...drank some hot tea...and followed up with two aleve and two magnesium tablets. Magnesium is supposedly mother natures nature pain blocker.

...no..i'm no doctor...but i did stay at a holiday inn once :lol:

i dont use anything like that. if you are feeling sore its prolly b/c you didnt strech fully or properly before and after playing. [/u]

Has nothing to do with stretching. That would be an injury. For those of us with day jobs that cannot get the repetition we would like, going out and doing 30 some holes will cause soreness.

Yeah, I know about Ibuprofin AND tea (I hope it was earl grey :D ).

o i got a job. but just like in lifting and any other sport there is improper streching is the #1 cause of soreness. i just made a really good habit of finding the time to strech multiple times a day.

o and earl grey is the shit but also a huge fan of oolong (from the right company)

Stretching BEFORE and after a round helps heaps. Ibuprofin, glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM, Magnesium (helps with jaw clench too) and smiling the entire drive to the course. Smiling(even faking it) releases all those happy go-lucky nuero-chemicals that relax muscles, relax your mind and in general makes you enjoy life more.

P.S. Black Tea is the shit. Earl Grey and Golden Monkey...

Maybe I do need more stretching or am doing so incorrectly. Any place I can look up some stretches or any quick tips Y'all can pass on?

What company for the oolong, must try... All this talk about tea made me wake up and put on a kettle. It's only 8 am and I'm on my second cup...

I stretch and warm up and I still get sore after playing. I will admit that this could be due to improper technique since I've only been playing for about six months.

I use this stuff I got from my chiropractor called BioFreeze. When you're not used to it, it will really rock your socks...more intense than any other ointment I've ever used. Once you become accustomed to it, or you apply to the same area often, it becomes more of a steady hot/cold feeling and is more tolerable. It's a green gel-type stuff that comes in a pump bottle. It's a bit pricey, but you don't need much for it to be effective.

I also drink green tea, and have recently been turned on to white tea, which is supposedly even better for you than green tea. I'm up to at least a cup of each per day. Zing! :)

Now we're talking! Bio-freeze, is it similar to mineral ice? I need to start a tea thread in the off topic section.

Here's the website: BioFreeze

I forgot to mention that it also comes in a roll-on applicator, and a spray. The roll-on and spray both apply the stuff in a thinner formula. The gel was cheapest, so that's what I got.


And yes, tea is the shizzle. I never ever thought I'd like it, but now I let my teabag steep for 5-10 minutes, and squeeeeeze every last drop out of it before drinking my cup! :P

I found biofreeze as long as something called polar freeze which is supposed to be similar: http://www.paincreams.com/Polar%20Freeze%20Details.htm

Does anyone know if this is a more powerful version of mineral ice? Also, are any of these available at any retail stores?
