But with anything new, there is a learning curve. Not only does your body have to learn to move or carry weight a certain way, it also has to accept the fact that improving your health might result in sore muscles. 

Who wants to feel sore after a workout?

Most are willing to live off the endorphins which you gain from a workout. But pain!

That doesn't seem fair in healthy living. However, there are benefits of soreness. You are growing and getting stronger muscles.

Don't be afraid to be a little sore. Instead, aim for healthy sore!

The K.I.S.S. ~ Aim for healthy sore!

Some experience acute soreness; the muscles that ache about 12 hours after a workout. And DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) can peak 24-48 hours after a workout. This is a common result of your physical activity due to the fact that you are working your muscles the way they're not used to.

The pain you feel comes from the torn muscle fibers and inflammation. 

There are many ways to treat sore muscles.

  • Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain medication like ibuprofen. (Always consult your physician or medical provider.)
  • Rest
  • Ice or cold shower
  • Massage
  • Stretching

There are some ways to lessen the amount of soreness so you don't have to be super sore, just a healthy sore. 

  1. Warm-up with dynamic stretching (fast walk, light jog, biking, high knees, straight leg lateral swing, bent knee lateral swing)
  2. Drink lots of water throughout the day
  3. Stretch before and after the workout
  4. Work within your strength limits
  5. Use proper technique for EVERY movement
  6. Cool down with static stretching
  7. Listen to your body

Your sore muscles do not have to be your excuse to not working out. Get your intentional movement in by taking care of your muscles pre-workout and post-workout.

"Train for life. Love your journey!"
