Tip Tuesday: Why SORE muscles are a GOOD thing!

I know, I know. You've just started a new program and you're SORE. Like sitting down on the toilet seat is TOUGH sore. Yup. Been there. And it's AWESOME! Ok. Short term it's a little uncomfortable, but long term it's great. Because if you're getting muscle soreness it means you've stepped out of your comfort zone and are making CHANGES. When you do strength based activities OR more intense cardio where your muscles are getting worked in NEW and challenging ways....you're actually breaking down muscle fibres and creating SMALL repairable muscle tears. These SMALL micro-tears are great! They signal the body to get stronger by building stronger fibres. Hello PROGRESS! So here's the lowdown on muscle soreness: -it should show up 24-48 hours after your exercise session -it should go away 24-48 hours after it shows up! -it should primarily be felt in the muscle belly (think middle of the muscle) -if the discomfort is SO bad that you can't function...that may be too much (and a signal you should back off your training intensity) -if the pain is in the joint or tendons or ligaments this is also NOT good. Time to visit your fave rehab professional! -if the soreness doesn't dissipate in 24-48H after it shows up...you likely did TOO much. Time to back off a bit! What can you do to help yourself? 1. Stretch! Make sure your muscles are warm and then complete a total body stretching routine or some yoga! Soreness will be eased off with gentle movement - a workout will actually help as long as it's not too intense! 2. Fuel and hydrate well! Your body needs BUILDING blocks to rebuild muscle! 3. Epsom Salts Bath. This can be super helpful and relaxing! Talk to your doctor to find out if this might help you! Want more tips? Join our Super You Community at www.facebook.com/superyoufit
