Default Ouch, I'm sore!

I had quit exercising for about 6 weeks. So I was easing myself back into it, and starting out slow for 2 weeks. This week I kicked back into high gear. Monday I attended a cardio class, then an ab class, and my abs are still so sore on Wednesday. On Tuesday I attended a 30 min class doing lots of squats, lunges, etc. After that was a 30minute weight lifting class. In the evening I did a 45 minute Turbo kick class.

I am so sore that I can't move without hurting! Standing up is a struggle, and I feel 80 years old!

I skipped today, but want to work out again tomorrow. Is there anything I can do to get over this faster? Or should I skip tomorrow's workout if I am still this sore?

working out always helps me with soreness

I would say yes work out, but do something light, like a slow jog or a brisk walk or something that can get your muscles warmed up and stretched out so they won' t be quite as sore

I skipped my weightlifting class for a week (last week) and resumed this Monday. I was (am) so sore even though I had maintained my daily jogs and 2Xweek step class. (Didn't know how much that weightlifting was doing for me til I got so sore after missing just a week!)

Anyway, I DEFINITELY agree with Amber--just keep working out, but not TOO heavy/intense. I just keep doing the same intensity until the soreness dissipates. The jogging helps stretch me back out so I'm not so sore all day.

Good for you for getting back in to it!

I bet you are. I got tired just reading. That is a lot! Do you plan on continuing like that?

As for soreness ... it's a fine and normal sign. The caveat is ... if it still hurts, don't work it again yet. If your legs are sore, do arms. Too creaky and achy for cardio? Go for a walk. There's lots of options. Yoga, stretching, pilates ...

As for the pain? same old, same old ... warm bath, ibuprofen

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll skip the classes today and just do some light cardio.

My workout schedule is this for the next month:

Monday: 30 minutes Cardio Jam class, 15 minutes core solutions class, 30 min running

Tuesday: 30 min HEAT class, 30 min muscle madness class, 45 minutes Turbokick class

Wednesday: 30 min Cardio Jam, 15 min core solutions class

Thursday: 30 min HEAT, 30 min Muscle Madness, 30 min running

Friday: 45 minutes Turbokick

Saturday: Home workout- DVD Pilates, Taebo or DDR
