"Omega-3 fats are critically important in the anti-inflammatory process. When you strength train, you are breaking down the muscle cell structure to allow it to rebuild bigger and stronger. Part of that process uses inflammation to initiate the rebuilding phase. But inflammation can get out of control and cause more damage and soreness than required, which actually slows the process down and inhibits your training. Omega-3 fats short-circuit the inflammation and keep it in check--so that you can get the benefits without the negative effects."
