    Question MUSCLE SORENESS after working out?

    Ok I lift weights and I get sore the next morning....well how long is the soreness supposed to last? and are some people faster recovering from a workout then others? It seems it takes me 5 days to lose the soreness completly.

    today My legs are so sore from doing squats yesterday and hamstrings I cannot bend down to pick up a pencil if I drop it on the floor I can barely even walk but its not painful it just feels like I had a good work out....is this bad or does anyone else get sore like this?

    sorry but im kinda a newb but im learning.

    Yeah, I am normally sore the next day too. I find the times when I have been REALLY sore is when I havent worked for a while. Streching after your workout and streching when sore help to speed up the recovery process.

    if you're just starting it's normal, give it a couple of weeks and the soreness will be much less and you'll get used to it.







































    But not after leg day, it will always be horrible after leg day hehe.

    ya thats why i hate TRAINING LEGS! lol I stopped training legs a while ago cause they would alwasy be sore and i almost fell down steps at my school because when i stepped my muscles were so weak i could barely stablize...

    I have to walk stiff legged now lol until the soreness goes away.

    and I only do a few sets of squats 3 sets for 8 reps

    I can handle the upper body soreness but the legs is a bitch lol...imagine having to take a dump the day after a tough leg workout and trying to sit on that toilet seat its painful/

    Good read!

    A few things I've noted that really help out.

    - Supplementing with either BCAAs or EAAs help to increase recovery time.
    - Low-Intensity Cardio while sore helps to relieve soreness (works out lactic acid?)
    - Stretching immediately after workout helps to avoid DOMS.
    - Getting out of your chair is overrated.. haha.

    I tend to be one of those that has around a 48hr delay before the onset of soreness. For instance, I did chest/tris yesterday and do not feel like I did anything at all BUT when I wake up tomorrow the soreness will remind me that I put in a good workout.

    Does Creatine CEE help?

    Yeah, I've read up a lot on DOMS, I just couldn't remember what it was called Sometimes later in the day I'll feel the tightness like after cardio or something of that nature. But, I definitely have DOMS but I also have fast recovery so though I don't get sore for 2 days, I'm usually only REALLY sore for that day and then just the residual soreness for another day.

    Should a person train through soreness or wait until he's no longer sore before he trains that muscle group again? In order to accurately answer this question, I must first quantify soreness. Here's how I do it.

    Level I Soreness – This is the type of soreness that's only felt/realized if the given muscle group is maximally contracted. In other words, you don't feel the soreness unless you flex hard. Level I soreness should always be worked through. At this stage of soreness, supercompensation will occur.

    Level II Soreness – This is the type of soreness that's felt all the time. In other words, if any flexion induces feelings of soreness, you're experiencing Level II. This type of soreness can be worked through, but only for one or two workouts. If it doesn't subside with your given program split, then allow for an extra day of rest between workouts.

    Level III Soreness – If you're often heard screaming and cursing while brushing your teeth, opening your car door, or just moving through everyday life, you have Level III soreness. This type of soreness causes pain sensations even when your clothes are rubbing against the muscle!

    This type of soreness should never be worked through unless it's an extremely light, high repetition, active recovery exercise. In fact, active recovery is a must at this point. Just remember what you did to cause this type of soreness and don't do it again!

    So to recap, subsequent strength training workouts should be performed as follows with regard to soreness of the given muscle group:

    Level I — Always
    Level II — Sometimes
    Level III — Never

    - It's the off-season, so it's time to improve!
    - Eating clean won't make you lose fat if you still stuff yourself stupid-full at every meal.

    Level I Soreness – This is the type of soreness that's only felt/realized if the given muscle group is maximally contracted. In other words, you don't feel the soreness unless you flex hard. Level I soreness should always be worked through. At this stage of soreness, supercompensation will occur.

    Level II Soreness – This is the type of soreness that's felt all the time. In other words, if any flexion induces feelings of soreness, you're experiencing Level II. This type of soreness can be worked through, but only for one or two workouts. If it doesn't subside with your given program split, then allow for an extra day of rest between workouts.

    Level III Soreness – If you're often heard screaming and cursing while brushing your teeth, opening your car door, or just moving through everyday life, you have Level III soreness. This type of soreness causes pain sensations even when your clothes are rubbing against the muscle!

    This type of soreness should never be worked through unless it's an extremely light, high repetition, active recovery exercise. In fact, active recovery is a must at this point. Just remember what you did to cause this type of soreness and don't do it again!

    So to recap, subsequent strength training workouts should be performed as follows with regard to soreness of the given muscle group:

    Level I — Always
    Level II — Sometimes
    Level III — Never

    - by Chad

    I have never had that level III soreness that sounds super painful...

    I dont work out at all until i am fully recovered...I do split training.

    so if my legs are sore 2 days later i still do my bicep and back work out....so i have enough time for my legs to heal.

    Mild soreness the next day would be desirable.

    Being very sore like that usually happens when workouts are too far apart, shouldn't happen with once or twice weekly workouts.

    and I only do a few sets of squats 3 sets for 8 reps

    I can handle the upper body soreness but the legs is a bitch lol...imagine having to take a dump the day after a tough leg workout and trying to sit on that toilet seat its painful/
    If your legs are terribly sore, you could try soaking in a cold tub. Use cold water, not freezing, not lukewarm.

    Soak for about 5-10 minutes and you have a major reduction in soreness.

    That cold water sounds like torture.

    anyway how come arnold said after lifting weights if he isnt sore he knows he didnt work out hard enough....im confuse is soreness desired or if your sore your over training im confused....so basically people have been saying mild soreness and then some people are saying if you get sore the next day or during the night tis DOMS lol im lost.
