Learn to recognize your body's signals.

When exercising, you use your muscles much more than they are used to. It may happen that you have muscle pain afterwards. Muscle pain during exercise occurs because the load on the body during exercise increases, causing tiny hairline cracks in your muscle fibers and tendons. This is normal and cannot cause any harm!
A good warm-up and sufficient rest afterwards are very important to repair your damaged muscles and therefore prevent muscle complaints during exercise!
If you increase the load on your body without giving your damaged fibers sufficient time to recover, you will damage even more fibers during the next training session, further weakening the affected muscle or tendon.
At a certain point, so many fibers are damaged that muscle stiffness and fatigue progress to long-term pain complaints, which can cause an inflammatory response.
Read and apply the tips below in your weekly planning and try to prevent muscle and tendon infections.

3 Simple tips to avoid inflammation!
1. Tax / Taxability

The load capacity is the maximum force that your body can handle, while load is the effective force that your body experiences when exercising. If the load is greater than your load capacity, there is a good chance that injuries will occur (in the long term). It is therefore important to increase the load capacity in accordance with your personal goals (e.g. core stability exercises), but also to adjust the (sports) load accordingly and build it up gradually.

2. A prepared muscle is worth two!

Muscle pain that occurs after exercise can be prevented by warming up properly and allowing for a recovery period. Be sure to take some time to read our previous 2 blogs, here you will find useful tips on both topics!

3. Add variety to your exercise patterns.

Ensure there is sufficient variety in your movements during exercise so that your muscles receive sufficient stimulation and do not "adapt" to a certain pattern. Your muscles then become less flexible, which increases the risk of injuries. . With variation, you do not strain the same muscles and muscle groups over and over again and your body becomes stronger, which increases your load-bearing capacity!

Still got an infection, what now?

In case of acute injuries, swelling and inflammation, you should always cool down. Do not use heat as this can make the pain and problem worse. You apply heat after the acute phase, when the recovery phase begins.
By cooling an injury in the acute phase, you reduce blood circulation in that area. This allows you to reduce possible inflammation and swelling, which also alleviates the pain.
We recommend using a combination of a cold pack with the ice cold cooling muscle gel when cooling your inflamed muscles. Where the RÉVVI muscle gel activates a long-lasting and deeply penetrating effect around the inflamed muscle and the cold pack has a more superficial (and analgesic) effect.

Be sure to read the full information about both products on our website and apply this tip in the first 5 days of your inflammation: " Lubricate the pain zone thickly, bandage it with cling film and let it work for a long time (approx. 12 hours) for a deep and effective effect. healing.”
