I want to go to the gym every day to do a light workout for 45minutes plus some stretching (and foam rolling as needed), but I'm constantly really tight. I stretch the tightness and got advice from several physios and personal trainers, but even though I strethc it, it still feels tight and locked up. I have been taking magnesium every day, one tablet at night, sometimes tried 2 tablets 1 in morning, 1 at night, but it's not really helping. My boyfriend kneads my trapezius, which is the worst, and it still doesn't fix it. I tried cupping for the first time several days ago and it helped a little, I have been able to crack my back and neck a lot, which gives short-term relief but then it seizes up again. It's really frustrating because I want to lift weights and go running, but I can't. When I do any back, bi, chest and/or shoulder exercises, it gives me a headache for the next day. I can't take ibuprofen because it hurts my stomach (yes I have taken it with food). I eat enough protein for recovery (>90g/day), and drink a tonne of water (I am always thirsty, drinking maybe 5L/day). I am slowly gaining weight and I want to stabilise it, by incorporating more exercise. Any ideas, help, had a similar situation?
TL;DR muscles so tight after working out, I have to rest 3 days between light workouts and get expensive massages and supplements, want to train every day.
