Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) hits harder at the start of a new training regimen or with an increased duration or intensity of exercise.
Why Muscle Soreness Happens.
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) can occur after a hard workout, often after an increase in duration or intensity from your regular workout. It’s not just lactic acid, lingering soreness is a result of micro-tears in muscle fibers caused by working your muscles in a different way. Inflammation from these micro-tears stimulate sensitive nerve endings in the muscles which in turn creates the sensation of muscle soreness. HOTSHOT’s proprietary formulation targets these sensitive nerves to reduce the muscle soreness they produce.
How HOTSHOT Changes the Game
During exercise, nerves can become hyper-excited and blast your tiring muscles with repetitive, uncontrollable signals which can cause lasting soreness and discomfort.
Drinking a 1.7 oz HOTSHOT Sports Shot starts to work by triggering the sensory nerves located in your mouth and esophagus.
Those stimulated nerves then send a calming signal to your spinal cord.
The signals inhibit the repetitive firing of hyperactive nerves into your muscles — to reduce next-day muscle soreness and pain.
Backed By Research
HOTSHOT has been shown to reduce muscle soreness in more than 90% of athletes over a 2-week study.
More than 9 out of 10 Endurance Athletes and 8 out of 10 Non-Endurance Athletes agree that HOTSHOT:
- Reduced muscle pain overall
- Reduced the most severe muscle soreness
- Reduced muscle soreness even after their longest workout/most intense workout
- Made noticeable improvements in their level of muscle soreness
