"Why am I so sore?"

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.

Jeremy's Success Story

Posted on: January 16, 2017
Tags: Physical fitness, Healthy eating, Newsletters, Training, Special,
Explosion Fitness client, Jeremy Toulouse has lost 80 pounds over the last 18 months! 
 
Jeremy's goal was to feel better by losing weight. For the first year, Jeremy tried losing the weight on his own. He made up an eating plan, and managed to lose 40 lbs. He noticed that he didn't feel better, and had actually started gaining weight even though his eating habits didn't change. Knowing there had to be a way to keep weight off, lose more, and feel better, Jeremy started looking for a solution.
 
That’s when we met Jeremy. Explosion personal trainer, Matt Schaber, started working with Jeremy to define his goals, which were to lose 40 more pounds, gain muscle and feel better. 

After assessing Jeremy’s fitness level, diet and goals, Matt came up with a plan to help him succeed. Matt changed Jeremy’s eating plan to make it more conducive to losing weight, and got him to agree to attend bootcamp 10 – 12 times each month. Following that strategy for 6 months has helped Jeremy to achieve all three of his goals.

How can you benefit from Jeremy’s experience? Here’s his advice:

  1. “Without a doubt, the first step is making your mind up that you want to lose weight. If you aren’t 100% ready, it doesn’t matter what program you do or try; it won’t work if you aren’t committed.”
  2. “Find what works for you. There are a lot of options out there for weight loss. Do some research before you start.”
  3. Do NOT expect quick results. You didn’t get where you are in life overnight, so it will take some time and dedication to get where you want to be – but you will get there!”
  4. “Make sure you have support. Having Matt’s help and participating in the bootcamps at Explosion were and still are important to my success. We encourage and motivate each other.”
