You just crushed a really hard workout. You increased your workout or you tried a new activity. You feel great-until you wake up the next morning, barely able to move.
Muscle soreness hits you about six-to-eight hours following activity, peaking around 24 to 48 hours post-training. Symptoms will often start to diminish after about 72 hours.
oreness happens when you start or introduce a new training routine. That is why on your first day of working out, changing your routine, or increasing your activity, you want to take it slowly and allow your body the time it needs to adjust. If not, you can become brutally sore the next day.
I like to train clients at a lighter and slower pace to let their body adapt to a new life style. If you find your self very sore I like to massage the muscle and I will even use ice to reduce the pain.
The most important part of exercise is listening to your body and pace to yourself. Keep it at your level. Keep it consistent.
