I took an entire week of from ALL forms of exercise over the holidays. It was probably the first time that ever happened and the break was wonderful on my sore body. (although the first few days it was mentally killing me to be without my daily workout!)
When I got home, I was eager and ready to hit it hard again. I jumped into my workout and picked up right where I left off.
Ummmmm…that was SO not the best idea.
The next day I could barely MOVE. I couldn’t even bend over to tie my own shoes. Ack. Lesson learned—-when taking a break from your fitness routine, be sure to EASE back into it.
Thankfully I had just received some Thera-Gesic® to review and it worked wonders on my sore legs! There are two main ingredients, menthol and methyl salicylate, and they work through your skin right away. If one application isn’t enough, you can put on more for a stronger effect. My hamstrings were very thankful to have some relief! I also have really tight shoulders, so I was thankful that it worked on those as well. The smell wasn’t too strong like some of the other brands and I didn’t even really notice it after the first few minutes.
I think it’s a great product and definitely something to have in your medicine cabinet.
