Tip of the Day: You get out of bed in the morning and as soon as your feet hit the floor, you think, “oh geez, those hamstrings are tight.” Then, you go to reach for your morning coffee or tea in the kitchen cabinet and your arms are achy. Have you experienced a situation like this? Muscle soreness is a normal side effect of weight training, but how is it possible to maintain a regular workout routine given the soreness?
First off, when you’re sticking to a weight training plan, I highly recommend a minimum of one rest day per week…a full day of rest! This type of rest day contrasts an “active rest day” in which one would take off from weights and instead would partake in an exercise like walking or yoga. You may notice I share workouts on here Monday-Friday and that is because I work out in a gym on those days, on Saturday I take off completely (my rest day), and on Sunday I go to a yoga class (my active rest day). It’s a good break for my body, but an even better time off for my mind…on Monday, I’m craving the gym!
Further, I’ve began implementing 3-4 days of intense weight training, such as yesterday’s leg workout, and 1-2 days of a lighter workout like today’s. On these days, I like to include smaller muscle groups: biceps, triceps, shoulders, abs, calves, and even some cardio! Alternating between weight workouts and other style workouts is a great way to circumvent the soreness issue.
