"Why am I so sore?"

October 3, 2018
Do you ever wonder, "Why am I so sore?"

There are many side effects that are a result of exercise; enhanced mood, feeling of accomplishment, it can leave you energized, it can help physically in numerous ways, but there is also the risk of becoming sore. Becoming sore from lifting is normal and can be a pain in the butt (quite literally), but there is good news when it comes to this soreness; it gets better and you won’t always get sore. I will try to explain without going into too much detail what happens to cause this soreness and what will help alleviate it.
 
The first step to this soreness is when you load the muscles more than they are used to, this causes the muscle fibers to sustain microtears. These muscles will then go into a 1-3 day process of repairing these tears, and while this happens many of the muscle fibers are in a shortened position. When the muscle fibers go into this shortened position it is likely you will feel tightness, this can be relieved by soft tissue work (such as foam rolling) or light exercise, with the main purpose being to get the muscle fibers back to their normal resting length. This will alleviate some of the tightness or soreness from the muscles, however the microtears will need time to heal. The benefit to this is that once those microtears heal the muscle will be stronger than it was before, so it will take more work for the body to sustain those microtears.
 
In short: you will likely get sore, and you can alleviate some of the soreness with movement and intentional tissue work, but time and consistency are your friends. The more consistent you are with working out the less sore you will become, all the while reaping in many off the positive benefits of exercise.
