My thighs always feel bigger after the elliptical, and last night I noticed it after Zumba! also...does anyone else ever feel this?

To me they do!! That's why I would never measure after cardio! LOL

I have never noticed, so I guess no, but I think I will pay attention next time. lol

A little and I notice a weight gain the next day when I've done a lot of walking. I gained 3 pounds from yesterday to today. Yesterday I was forced to walk almost 10 miles so I'm relatively sure it's water gain from muscle recovery. I'm just drinking a lot of water today to counteract the effects.

Mine got bigger after spin class, and like said above, i gained weight, must be water weight retaining in muscle. Weird i know!!
