    It will get better with time and may even go away completely. Stretching will help as will a foam roller.

    My ad when his muscles ache gets me to jam my thumbs at the muscle and rub the area....not sure if that's scientific or if he's just a masochist.

    Take a hot bath to increase blood flow and move the lactic acid out of the muscles.

    Foam roll before, maybe even after if you feel bad. Also just exercising regularly will mean you ache less

    Lots of *******s in here.

    There is no evidence that stretching or foam rolling or massage pre/post or intra workout has any effect on limiting post work out soreness.

    There is limited (read: sketchy) evidence that stretching or foam rolling/massage can provide temporary relief during the episode of muscle soreness (it's not going to be a miracle worker mind) but it is not better than a generalised warm up and it will return once you're no longer exercising.

    There is evidence to support cold showers, ice baths and sea swimming (the things studies use, eh) following exercise to limit the duration and intensity of muscle soreness post exercise.

    My general advice regarding DOMS is, if you think it's gonna be real bad - lots of eccentric load after time off - to take a cold shower immediately following exercise. I dont think cold showers are really required for most trainees after the initial couple of sessions. If you've missed your opportunity then it's simply a matter of time.

    Don't skip training unless the pain is still interfering and problematic after a proper warm up. With time, the incidence will generally subside or become less of a problem as you become more accustomed to training.

    It's funny but the British Journal of Sports Medicine disagrees with you

    Please feel free to back up your claims with suitable evidence
