Make sure you rest enough between workout routines — your muscles will let you know when you don’t. They’ll be sore, swollen, and aching. Before hitting any more workouts for the week, you need to recover, and a pineapple-pom drink will help alleviate the inflammation. Pineapple contains bromelain — an anti-inflammatory property. A study completed by Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise indicated that consuming foods containing bromelain can reduce muscular strength losses after intense workouts. Surprisingly enough, ginger is not just for your stomach but also muscles; it has been seen to help reduce muscle soreness.
