This is a question I have heard throughout gyms since I started working out.
Heard some people say if you aren’t sore after you workout, you aren’t working hard enough!
Heard if your muscles don’t ache for days, then you aren’t pushing and your body is not changing!
This could not be farther from the truth.
Can you have an effective workout and be sore? Yep.
Can you have an even more effective workout and not be sore? Absolutely.
Some people believe if they aren’t getting or stopped getting sore, then they need to change up their routine and find something new.
Again, couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Give this podcast a listen to learn about what soreness comes from, what factors influence it, why it is arbitrary in achieving your fitness goals, and what you should be tracking instead of how sore you are.
This podcast was made available by one of you guys who reached out to me and asked me this question.
I thrive off questions and love answering them! So please reach out to me via dm, email, text, wherever, and ask away! Your question could end up on the podcast!
