My wife and I have followed Dr. Mirkin’s site for nutrition and fitness information for many years.
That he’s a senior, like us, is a big plus, though most of the information is valid for most adult ages. He just seems more cognizant of the challenges (and opportunities) afforded to us as we age (smiles).
In his most recent post, “NSAIDs Interfere with Exercise Training,” he actually provides not only information re the title topic, but also –
- What to Do When You Have DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
- What Does Not Decrease DOMS
- How to Prevent Injuries
- Tips for Recovery from a Hard Workout
Two excerpts I found particularly important for me were:
- Exercising at low intensity during recovery will cause your muscles to become more fibrous and resistant to injury when you stress them in your next intense bout of exercise.
- When you are training properly, your muscles will feel sore every morning. If they don’t feel better after a 10-minute warmup, take the day off.
And there’s much more concise info!
What I also like is applying some of these concepts to my creative work, like sometimes being creative at less intensity after a big art project – it seems to keep my creative loop intact, yet lets me recover for my next burst of painting or writing!
I should also add I’ve read this short article three times and each time something new popped out I felt was important for me to remember 🙂
