HELP!

What do you do to get over a super sore muscle?

I usually do the heat therapy patches but the pain in my back is diffuse. I set a new PR yesterday with my deadlift (155lbs) and my last one I used all of my back and shoulder muscles instead of my legs, by accident (last rep, my hand was slipping and was about to drop it coming up and to keep it from dropping, I went poor form).

My back kills today, worse than my legs. The shitty part? Today is triceps and back. Lol

Ice can help, especially in the case of a sudden injury (like a pull or tear).  

Tylenol body pain does it for me, but I only use that when it is really bad.

I wonder if an epsom salt bath could help.

I use epsom salts regularly.  I find they really help.  Just make sure you add enough salts to the bath (it takes quite a bit to be effective).  You can also just soak a cloth in warm water and epsom salts and apply it to the sore area.

Ouch! Definitely try an epsom salt bath (you can buy scented ones at Walmart, I love Dr. Teals Chamomile).  A massage might help as well.

I definitely recommend the epsom salt baths.  I use them about 3x per week and it's amazing for sore muscles.  (plus epsom salts can temporarily make your waist about 2" smaller for a period of time)
