Believing in Your Fitness Abilities Now May Reduce Muscle Soreness Later

Increase Confidence and Reduce Soreness

Does mind prevail over matter when it comes to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)?

New research has found that those who are confident in their own ability to make it through an especially tough workout actually experience less soreness than those who think that they may not be able to handle it.

Sounds a little quacky to me, but I'd be willing to do anything to reduce DOMS. So think yourself fit and maybe, just maybe, you'll be less sore in the morning.
