Sore muscles
What does everyone on here do for sore muscles? I have a few creams that I use that work well but wanted to know what everyone else uses.

foam roll, contrast showers, heat creams, light activity to work up a sweat to get some blood flow

I ignore them unless I feel like something is damaged. I might spend a few extra minutes warming up to be sure I don't pull anything, but regular DOMS doesn't impact me much. The only time I worry about it is when everything is sore, even muscles I didn't work, and my warmup weights feel like a ton. Then I take it easy, sleep and eat more, and hit it again in a couple days.

If they get bad I will take a couple of asprin, otherwise I ignore them too. Thankfully I really never get sore unless it's a new exercise for me.

Pain is weakness leaving the body, enjoy it!

Hot baths. No candles or Twilight though.

If I don't hurt I didn't do work.

I have learned to love the good muscle pain.

Bad pain (tares and such) I use AAEFX's Joint ReHab cream.

Soak in Epsom salts. Works wonders for me,

Nothing if it's DOMS, I just deal with it; after all, I caused it ;)

Train more often.

Soreness is only ever associated with unusual stress. Unusual for the body is considerably more than you're used to, or training after a prolonged period of time i.e. a week. Training muscle three times a week won't leave you sore, far from it. You'll be ready to go most days.
