Well, since you have been working your muscles alot lately since you've started your new camp, their growing and your working them hard so they're going to end up hurting for a few days.
My advice was to take some Advil, but since you've done that I guess I don't know what else to tell you. But the pain will subdue in a few days, and the more you work your muscles they won't always hurt like that, you just have to get used to it. And yea I know it's a pain in the butt, but patience is a virtue
if your muscles are just tightening up after the workout, and causing pain, always stretch for at least a half an hour before you go to bed to prevent further tightening over night. And it will heal much faster if you ice instead of heat. I've had sooooo many sore muscles from lifting weights for the diving season! so I hope this helps!
