My arms are sore after a workout. What can I do for them?

Yesterday I workout really hard lifting weight and stuff. Today both my arms are really sore in the middle of my arm. After the biceps and before my forearms. Pretty much on the opposite side of my elbow. Can I do anything to stretch this par of my arm out make it feel better?

    Yeah, just move them around a little bit to get the blood to circulate a little better.

    Also, Green Tea helps with muscle pain. I drink it all the time.

    Hi Nathan.
    The thing you are suffering from is called DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). It starts 12-24 hours after exercise.
    This usually occurs after a heavy eccentric workout (where you have to extend your arms with weights in hands).
    till date there is no proven theory about its occurrence. Still you should include appropriate warm up and cool down.
    As of now, you can use ice pack at home for 15-20 minutes every 2-3 hours. don’t stretch the muscles now as it may do more harm. Start stretching after 48 hours from the time pain started.
    get fit soon.
