Is it good to be sore after lifting weights That depends on how sore you are. A little sore and tired is a good thing, since it means you are comfortably pushing your limits. Sore is the opposite of comfortable. What if you’re really sore If you are in serious pain, you over did it. If a specific location hurts, you probably have an injury. There is a saying of no pain, no gain. Are you assuming that you have to be in pain from a workout in order to lose fat If there’s.
Serious pain, you won’t gain muscle but fat as you sit by the sidelines recovering. I thought burning was normal. Muscle burn is the body trying to deal with lactic acid buildup, which isn’t bad. But muscle pain and tendon pain mean you have to give it a rest literally. How long is too long The burn should fade in a matter of hours, if not minutes. Any pain that stays overnight is a sign of a longer term problem. I’ve heard that soreness can last for days. If it hurts the next day, you need to give it a rest. A rest day.
Then I’ll get fat. No. Just go for a run instead of lifting weights or go swimming instead of yoga. I will never attend a yoga class unless there is a very attractive instructor in front of me. I suppose that’s a form of cardiovascular exercise, too. When is it soreness and when is it pain Sometimes I have both. If you have muscle soreness, sudden piercing pain in one position or location or shooting pains, then you know that something is really wrong. And then I need to get to a doctor.
