Since there's a whole thread here about how you know when you're a fitness freak, I'm assuming that I've come to the right place!
I got back into working out about 2-3 months ago. I'm currently doing step classes, power classes (barbells) and my own cardio/weight training. I try for to work out 3 or 4 times a week and when I started, of course I was soooo sore. Sometimes I could barely walk.
Now - nothing!
Am I still getting a good workout if I'm not sore? Am I crazy for liking a little soreness?
For the step class, I do it a little more high impact when I can to really get my heart rate up and I don't expect to be sore after that but when I do my weight program and the power class, I'm looking for it! I've upped my weights a bit so far but since I've only been doing this a short time, I haven't gotten significantly stronger.
For my own program, someone told me that when I settled in for a bit to just try a bigger weight, even if I couldn't do the same number of reps but sometimes I can't get past three or four so I think I should go back down.
Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated!!
