Yes, so the muscles need cooling after the heavy work out in order for this not to happen?

Probably Chris or Robert would be the best people to answer questions here, but I shall throw in what little I can guess at.Firstly, in the short term, the main problem is with the build up of lactic acid, which is what causes the cramps - this happens when there is insufficient oxygen available to supply the muscle, and so the body uses anaerobic means to generate energy, and creates lactic acid as a byproduct. The idea of the warm down is, I would guess, to ensure there is enough blood flowing through the muscles to make sure that the muscles get their supply of oxygen until they have come back to a resting state.The longer term soreness I would guess to be just the muscles trying to rebuild themselves after what has been an injurious exercise regime, with the rebuilt muscles being stronger than the earlier muscles. Since most growth happen during one sleeping hours *(this is true even of ordinary childhood growth), thus it is probably not unreasonable that this is when one feels the impact of that growth (it is also a time of reduced blood flow, and hence that too would probably make for potentially more pain - that is also why night time cramps sometimes happen).
