muscle soreness

The first time you complete a weights session or get back into weight training you may experience a little discomfort in the form of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.

The simple tasks like going up/down stairs, sitting on the toilet and squatting down that you took for granted a few days ago will be that little bit harder 😂 

Know that this is normal and will fade after a day or 2, maybe 3.

You have created micro tears in your muscle fibre and your body is now repairing them. During this process you muscles will grow back bigger. 

When we say bigger it is microscopic so don’t worry about getting bulky. Muscle growth is a painfully slow process, but an important one!
