Even for those of us in excellent shape, it's common for muscles to feel sore the day after a hard workout. And although taking aspirin may relieve your pains temporarily, it also can delay your recovery.When your muscles feel sore, the best treatment is to take the day off. Don't even stretch.The soreness you feel is caused by bleeding into and damage to the microscopic fibers of your muscles. Exercising with damaged muscles can cause a larger, more serious muscle tear. Then you won't be able to exercise at all.If you are unable -- or unwilling -- to take the day off, you should exercise at a relaxed pace in another sport that stresses muscles other than the ones that feel sore.

After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

On the day after you exercise intensely, your muscles feel sore and you feel tired. What can you do to speed up your recovery so you can compete again on the next day?The most effective way to shorten recovery time for your muscles is to eat carbohydrate-rich foods and drink fluids immediately after you finish your first event. Intense exercise, such as running a fast race or playing a hard game of basketball, uses up muscle glycogen, the main source of energy for your muscles during exercise.

Tests conducted on Ravens starting cornerback Lardarius Webb's lower back revealed no structural damage, according to sources. Webb's back injury, which was suffered last Friday and has sidelined him since the second day of training camp, is apparently muscular. The team is expected to be cautious with Webb to avoid this becoming a chronic, long-term injury. Webb's availability for practices will be evaluated on a day-to-day, week-to-week basis. At this point, the injury isn't expected to affect Webb in the regular season and is expected to get better with rest and rehabilitation.

Lots of people think that stretching before exercise prevents injuries. There is no evidence that it does, but there is evidence that stretching can help to make you a better athlete.Every time you exercise, you injure some of your muscle fibers. They shorten when they heal, and short, tight muscles are more likely to tear. Muscles and tendons tear when the force on them is greater than their inherent strength. Stretching does not make muscles stronger. Heavy resistance training is what strengthens muscles and makes them less likely to tear.

Most people don't high-jump, do hurdles or high-kicks, but they do climb stairs and bend over to pick up objects.These day-to-day moves require the muscles of the back of the hip to lengthen as the muscles of the front of the hip contract to bring the leg up.The following exercise stretches the muscle across the front of the hip, commonly called the hip flexor, and will help to increase flexibility.*Lie on your back with one leg straight on the floor; tuck the other knee toward your chest and hold it in place with your hands.

Q: What do you think of a 10-year-old boy lifting weights?A: If your son's interest in lifting weights is founded in a desire to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Bo Jackson, he'll be disappointed. At 10, his body is not yet secreting large enough amounts of testosterone to produce significant muscle growth through weight lifting.Nonetheless, boys can improve muscle tone and increase strength by lifting weights. It is important the regimen not be excessive; tired muscles are more prone to injury.

Older men who receive injections of the male hormone testosterone can increase their muscle size and lower their cholesterol levels. That's the good news from a study recently published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.All men go through a sort of menopause, although it is far more gradual than that experienced by women.From age 50 to 70, a man's blood level of testosterone drops more than 40 percent. He becomes less assertive, loses muscle and bone mass, gains fat, doesn't want to have sex as often and finds it far more difficult to attain and maintain an erection.

It's a Wednesday evening at the Pop Physique studio in downtown Baltimore, and a dozen women -- most clad in leggings, T-shirts and socks -- are rotating their hips while trying to hold an exercise ball between their thighs.   "Great job, guys!" says instructor Smithy Onattu, directing her students via a headset as a playlist with songs such as Lana Del Rey's "Florida Kilos" and "Tumblr Girls" by rapper G-Eazy pumps through the art-filled space. Over the course of an hour, the group will tackle a series of exercises: planks and push-ups, plies and other ballet moves.

It's been more than a decade since Maureen Rogers helped relocate the Burtonsville Players - a nonprofit theater group that's performed in the Laurel area for more than 35 years - to the Laurel Mill Playhouse on the west end of Main Street. Well established on Main Street for her networking as the little theater's public liaison and artistic director, Rogers has taken on another job toward the other end of the street. Last year, she was hired as administrator of the Laurel Board of Trade, and works in the group's small, tucked-away office on Main Street.

High-profile cyber attacks on organizations such as Target and Neiman Marcus have drawn increased attention to the cybersecurity industry - an industry that continues to thrive in Maryland, and specifically in Howard County. Local cybersecurity experts who aim to thwart hackers say they are always being challenged, and at times seem to work from a disadvantage. "We have to be right 100 percent of the time," said Jim Close, federal account manager for Sourcefire, a Columbia-based network security company acquired by Cisco in October.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When infielder Jonathan Schoop won the Orioles' Minor League Player of the Year award in September 2011, he traveled to Camden Yards to accept the honor. The shy, skinny Curacao native, then 19 years old, couldn't have looked more uncomfortable on the field that day, tentatively shaking hands with staff and players while giving barely audible answers to reporters in a language that he was still learning. There was a common sentiment within the media: This is the kid who beat out top prospect Manny Machado for an award that bears the name of Hall of Famer?

Maryland's defense, considered in the preseason to be the team's strength after the graduation of four starters on offense, is living up to the billing. The No. 3 Terps held Duke to season lows in goals and assists and a season-worst scoring drought of 26 minutes, 26 seconds in Saturday's 10-6 victory over the No. 1 Blue Devils at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Maryland's goals-allowed-per-game rose from 4.7 to 5.3, but that was bound to happen unless the Terps (4-0 overall and 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference)

The unease that dogged Loyola in the offseason and preseason involved an offense that graduated a combined 76 goals and 32 assists from four starters in attackman Mike Sawyer and midfielders Chris Layne, Sean O'Sullivan and Davis Butts. But through the first four games of the current season, the No. 13 Greyhounds (3-1 overall and 1-0 in the Patriot League) are one of the most productive teams in Division I. Thus far, they rank fourth in the country with 15.3 goals per game. Senior Brian Schultz has recorded seven goals and six assists as the third attackman, and the first midfield has consisted of redshirt freshman Brian Sherlock (six goals and four assists)

JUPITER, Fla. - It isn't spring training without the sun shining on a phenom, a young player who has come out of nowhere to stir the imagination. The Orioles have a classic this year. "The first time he walked through the clubhouse, I said, `Man, what a beast,' " Jeff Conine said yesterday. Brady Anderson had the same reaction when he spotted Jay Gibbons, the Rule 5 draftee who has become one of the talking points of camp. "He's got some Popeye arms, for sure," Anderson said. "The guy is jacked."
