7. 10 Min Sore Muscle Workout Routine
Sore Muscle Workout
Have sore muscles but want to workout? Join fitness professional, Caroline Jordan, for this quick "sore muscle workout routine". The exercises in this video are designed to move your body through functional movements at a lower intensity than your actual workout. This dynamic exercise sequence will enhance blood flow to your working muscles and increase their internal temperature, potentially helping them recover faster and feel less sore from an intense workout. The fluid motions and yoga postures included in this 10 minute exercise routine will bring mobility back to your body, soothe sore muscles, and help you prepare for the next day's training! What causes sore muscles? Delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS, is the soreness you experience 24 to 48 hours after intense bouts of exercise. DOMS begins with micro-tears that occur inside your muscles during your workout. These micro-tears set off an inflammatory response and your body’s immune system works to repair the damage. This causes swelling and fluid buildup in and around the muscles creating excess pressure which sends an “ouch” signal to your brain. “How can I tell the difference between soreness and a strain?” IF words such as “throbbing”, “stabbing”, or “popping” enter your vocabulary while working out, you may have strained a muscle. Another sign of a strain (which is a large muscle tear): the pain persists even when you stop doing the activity. Soreness that occurs during a workout, however feels uncomfortable, but the pain should let up when you stop. If you think you may have strained a muscle, stop what you are doing immediately and see your doctor. “If I am sore after yesterdays workout, can I still exercise today?” Yes, but with some adjustments. If you are resistance training, its recommended not to exercise the same muscle groups on two consecutive days. If you’re feeling sore, perform a low-intensity activity, such as walking, yoga, or swimming. These activities will help temporarily relieve stiffness and it will feel good to get your body moving to shake off the sore muscles. Always check with your doctor before beginning any workout routine. If your soreness lasts longer than a few days, you want to go see a doctor or physical therapist! Be mindful and train smart - take care of your body and do whats right for you! Heres to health and a long life :)
