Any tips on making this more bearable?? LOL.

Nope, none, but I feel your pain!
I did BodyPump on Monday for the first time in months and was so sore yesterday from the squats
Really wish there weren't stairs at my place!

I second the magnesium. I massage myself with magnesium oil if I'm in pain... An Epsom salts bath helps too.
The other thing is to keep moving! Make sure you keep walking around and stretching and it will get better.

Depends on what hurts! If I have really sore legs I find 25 mins on the exercise bike sorts it out.

More exercise seems to help for me!! Once warmed up they start to feel better.

LOVE my foam roller, it hurts in a good way! If that fails - anti-inflammatories - the prescription ones!

Walking down stairs after lots of squats is torture.
I can't help, I can only sympathise.

Make sure you are getting breaks of at least one day in between from doing the exercise to allow the muscles to recover - i.e. don't do the same exercise on a daily basis or it will aggravate the inflammation. If you were doing running or weight training, you could introduce some form of cross training that is more gentle on your muscles such as swimming or cycling on your "rest" days.

Thanks - already take rest days, on which I do yoga or walking. Stretch constantly!
Feeling a bit better today, yay!!
Where does one get Magnesium??
ETA. Or a foam roller...

Not sure about the foam roller, but I buy magnesium in tablet form from the chemist or health food shop. Take them of night time.
Epsom salts you can buy in the bandaid section of Coles.

I bought magnesium tablets and magnesium oil (for massage) from a vitamin shop. I had to go to a few before I found the oil...

I got my foam roller from here http://www.physiosupplies.com.au/fitness/Foam-Rollers.html , but I imagine there are lots of other places you could get your hands on one.

Chemist Warehouse has a few different types of magnesium tablets
