~~What would YOU do??~

Thursday, February 03, 2011

emoticonHi friends~

To start off yes this is a whine..LOL!!
Yesterday I did a NEW kind of Yoga..Called "Weight Loss Yoga" (Biggest Loser).Ok so this was unlike any Yoga I have done..It was GREAT..Definitely is gonna make me SO much stronger.

BUT today I am emoticon emoticonIn PAIN!! So much PAIN!! In case you don't know how much..This REALLY hurts!!
My sides, back..also my shoulders emoticon
So my question is what would YOU do?? Would take the day off exercise wise?? OR would you find "something" to do??

How do "YOU" know when its time for "YOUR" body to PRESS ON..Or take a break to recover??
Any advice would be very helpful emoticon emoticon's
God Bless~Christina

    I would stretch or do something "light". It will actually help you feel better.

    I would do it again, because when I do something new and hurt the next day if I do it again it releases the lactic acid built up from your new exercise.

    I would suggest finding somethine else to do! You dont want to be sedatary and not do anything but you dont want to overwork your muscle. A nice walk if the weather is good would be great!

    Sore muscle need to be worked out.. but not beat to death... so.. I would do some gentle exercises..if you do, the soreness will leave more quickly than if you're immobile.. good luck!

    Don't underrate some ibuprofen! I would suggest some stretching exercises so your muscle don't seize up and maybe some walking or another gentler activity. Injuries will only hinder progress if you push too hard.

    Concur with what's been said. Drink plenty of water, nice soak in the tub and probably some gentle stretching.

    Hope you're better soon.

    If it was me I would probably still do something, but keep it really low-impact, maybe even just go for a walk.

    I agree with everyone else, 'Tina! Work something else, or just warm up and stretch for today!

    I would either take the day off, or I would do something different. Easy stretches to help the muscles heal, or even walking or dancing maybe. I wouldn't do the same type of exercise and let those muscles rest for a day.

    I would definitely try to do something...especially some stretching exercises...the pain tells you that those yoga moves are working your muscles and that's a good thing...make sure you stretch before and after you do them!

    It sounds like this yoga was as hard as a ST workout!! And then some!!! Ouch!! The rule is to not do ST two consecutive days right? When you work a muscle group hard, it needs a day to repair. I'd likely do some walking to limber up a bit, drink lots of water, and maybe a soak in a nice hot bath!! And take it from there!

    I guess the real question I would ask is if you're in pain or just have stiff muscles. The last thing you want to do is cause injuries that set you back.

    For instance yesterday, in my step class the instructor did an abnormal amount of squats....my thighs and butt hurt...but as I move around that stiffness is gone...so I will continue with an exercise today...but two weeks ago I was doing chest flies with too heavy a weight and was left with severe pain on my back...I had to lay off flies for two weeks and even today am careful.

    Hope that helps some...
