This how us trainers felt watching you guys warm up today. I know it has been a rough week but make sure you come in tomorrow and finish it off strong. What some of you are experiencing is called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). Your body is not yet conditioned for the high volume of training that we have recently switched over to and you are feeling the result of that. The soreness will peak anywhere from 24 to 72 hours after your workout. Most people believe that it is a build of of Lactic acid but that is not really true. When you are doing the actual exercise is when you will feel the lactic acid “burn” that people talk about. But generally your body will eliminate it from the blood in a few minutes after you are done with that movement and be back to completely normal levels within the hour. What you are experiencing with DOMS is basically inflammation resulting from microscopic tears in your muscle. One of the worst things to do with really sore legs is to do nothing. I know the first few air squats of the day will suck, but moving will make the legs feel better. It will promote blood flow and getting fresh blood to the area is one of the best ways to battle DOMS. That is why we also recommend active recovery days (like a nice easy row) and rolling out. Both will also do the trick of getting a larger supply of fresh blood to your sore muscles. Long story short, if you are sore, don’t just sit on your butt. Get in the gym and get moving!!!
