    Is it time for another S&C Forum field trip to GNG to win some converts?

    I cannot believe this. I have now posted twice in GNG this year. That's twice more than I posted there last year. Darn you eye.

    I think we should blast off and nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    I couldn't help it. I had to say something to share my annoyance.

    I think all of us need to go there and recommend ice baths. Anything else stupid and painful we can attest to?

    I've heard that, if you punch yourself in the throat as hard as you can, sore muscles don't hurt as bad anymore.

    I've never understood why people look for remedies for soreness. I've been working out hard enough to be extremely sore hundreds of times over the last 25 years. The dang soreness goes away on its own!!

    Besides, very bad soreness is usually a sign of CF-like doing crap too hard that one's not adapted for. I get a little sore pretty much every workout, but nothing awful.

    I think it makes the top 5 list of best S&C Forum signatures. Somewhere behind CJ's comment about oiling of men's bodies.

    I tend to get a little to moderately sore after most workouts, but nothing anywhere near a pain that'd send me running for some nsaids, ice packs, heat, or whatever. I've never understood that. An injury is different--I'm talking about the soreness that happens to us so often that it should fall into the "so what?" category.

    I think people are just *******. Honestly. Did you read those replies? Prescription muscle relaxers and painkillers for DOMS? Are they serious?
