Without a doubt, an appropriate and thorough stretch will reduce the muscular soreness in the days following a session. The soreness and discomfort is caused by a build up of lactic acid within the muscle, a waste product from your lactate energy system. And so, drinking plenty of water can be very beneficial to flush out the toxin build up. Moving is essential as sitting down can cause the muscles to tighten and stiffen up, so going for walks, (even if it hurts), can be very important. Massages are great, but are only enjoyable once the pain has subsided as a sports massage on painful muscles can be excruciating!
Swimming is fantastic as it's non-weight bearing and much gentler compared with a weight routine. Doing a yoga or pilates class AFTER your power plate class, (if possible), would be fantastic as they focus on the stretch and can leave you feeling very relaxed. Stretching immediately after the class, before the pain has set in, can prevent the extreme painfulness from setting in in the first place.
Doing exercise on a regular basis will help you to get stronger and build up a tolerence to the lactic acid so you won't be as sensitive. Your body will also become more efficient at getting rid of it if you are in a regular routine.
But don't give up! It will get easier :)
