Hello you poor person without a name,
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is often an unwelcome byproduct of the overload principle. After an intensive workout, some of it is almost inevitable but if it gets to the point of excessive pain rather than mild discomfort, it is an indication that you have worked too hard.
However, there is a theory that some form of light cardiovascular immediately after the workout can prevent some of the soreness.
You may need to cut back a bit on your training intensity. Some muscle soreness generally comes with the territory with strength training. But you may need to progress a little more gradually if you’re feeling crippled a day or two after your workouts. Also, try adding some static stretching exercises after your workout – that can help reduce muscle soreness also.
Hello No Name,
That is what I named my puppy that I knew I would raise only to give up.
I agree with Karin and Paul. You could also try myofascial release. Slow and steady wins the race: I would definitely start out more gradually. During the workout you probably feel good enough to continue; but, try to hold yourself back from progressing quickly. Don’t worry, the gains will come soon enough, all while preventing DOMS.
