LOTS of soreness with Inferno???
I started Inferno a couple of days ago. I am VERY sore! I am still going to work out, and I will continue to watch my form. I also do a significant warm-up and cool-down. I expected the program to be intense, but this soreness is driving me nuts! I can hardly walk for about an hour after waking up. Any suggestions??my2men2007 by:
Foam roll before your workout to loosen up those muscle fibers. And I like the walking suggestion! Getting blood flow going will help the lactic acid (that's what gives you that sore feeling) circulate will help that soreness feeling go away faster!
You might want to try a slightly less intense workout if your soreness is that bad. You can use Discover mode to try some other ones out if your interested, just cause their not the Inferno program doesnt mean you will get less of a work out. Perhaps doing a round of something slightly less intense for the first 20 days or so would help prepare you for Inferno.
BCAA's (branched chain amino acids) are a great way to reduce soreness. You can purchase them in capsule form at places like GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, or Complete Nutrition, and online. Strecthing on and off during the day also helps squeeze (in a sense) the Lactic Acid build up out of the muscles which is a component in muscle soreness. Also, drink as much WATER (not sports drinks as they have added sugar and gunk) as you can, to help your body filter out the LA from your system. Squeezing lemon into your water helps if you can't do plain. The soreness is PROOF you are making changes. You want the soreness, it's sign your muscles took a beating, and therefore you must aid them in the recovery process by doing said things. Remember to eat well in addition!! Good job!
Hello, Dailyburners.... I am feeling much better than I did 17 days ago! I decided to go back to the Intelliburn exercises on most days, and incorporate my favorite Inferno workouts a couple of days a week. (I am working out 6 days a week). I am still sore sometimes, but I feel encouraged about the progress I'm making. The fact that I am motivated to "get moving" nearly every day is progress, in itself. Thanks for all the support!
Wow that sounds bad. Maybe it will get better after some time.
I was sore the other day from the DBK workout but my frequent walks with my dog helped my hamstrings and rear end feel better.
