The key to a perfect post-workout recovery is sufficient rest so that your muscles can have time to repair themselves after a heavy session. However, not many know but there are stretches which can help and relieve sore muscles. For the unversed, muscle soreness develops because of microscopic damage to the muscle fibres used during exercising. Acute soreness is felt straight away. It is partly caused by a buildup of lactic acid. 

If you are someone who experiences this frequently, here are some stretches you can try to help ease your pain.
