Let me just say since taking Whey Protein about 3+ years ago it's rare for me to be sore let alone really sore the following day after a workout no matter how vigorous the exercise.
-----------------------------------------------------------

It started at the end of March when i did Pull Ups & some Push Ups on a Saturday. That next week i was sore as hell. I don't even think i was sore on that following Sunday but i think it started on the Monday. My shoulder and neck was sore as hell. Because i was so sore  i didn't want to do any exercises so what i did instead was stretches and ankle raises. What resulted was very sore calves the following days.

A few things about that particular time.........i did get sick so my immune system and my body must have been a little run down. This could be the cause for how unusually severely sore i was. Also my last work out prior to that Saturday was 4+ days ago.


On THursday April 20th i did Bench Press/Triceps & some Push Ups. Following day i noted i was sore but did not note i was severely sore. Prior to that Friday workout i had 2 days rest and did Legs/Biceps & some push ups on Tuesday 17th April.

I had 2 days rest after that Friday 21st April when i was sore. On Sunday 23rd April i did Pull Ups/Bicep curls. The very following day i was Very sore!

Just Wednesday 26th April i did Legs/Triceps. The following day i did Push Ups and FRiday i was quite sore to this very day my shoulders, tricpes & chest are still killin' me!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again, i'm not usually this sore since taking Whey Protein which is why i have to question & be a little concerned w/ what's been going on lately.

Let me also add that i read in this forum by Search and other cats that you have to shock your body. I didn't actually realize that you had particular combo workouts you follow in order for workouts to be efficient like cest/tri's, Bi's/Legs ect. Usually i would do consecutive shoulder/bicep work outs but since reading that thread i've tried to shock my body by varying  and attacking different muscle groups every day i workout. This may have resulted in the soreness. Perhaps i'm just merely shocking my system/muscles which results in my muscles being far more sore and sore longer since i'm changing up routines.

Please let me know of any other conclusions you come up with or if you think i am making any mistakes. Or if i should continue and what i am doing is actually in the right direction. All i know is that i am quite bloody sore as i type. I can hardly put my arms up to make a jump shot for basketball which is why i didnt play any pick up games today. It's very rare for me to be sore for 2 days in row, let alone several days.

Let me know what you think gentlemen......

What is it that YOU think think is causing the soreness?

Try to pay attention to your training highs and lows. Sounds like excess, dehydration and maybe not enough potassium. (celery) 

Proceed mildly, walk out of the gym fresh and make the adjustment accordingly.

You know what you're doing wrong. - explain.

So, you're not only a box but a sensitive little twat too.  I suggest a box of tampons, some Midol, and a warm bath with candles.

Your guy responses make it clear that your "issues" with "soreness" have nothing to do with lifting weights.  Wrong forum, little guy.

As i type it's the 3rd day in a row i'm still sore since the last workout. Very unusual.

I think it may be a combination of a few things:

- I do lack sleep (insomnia) and have been trying to repay sleep debt since end of last year (But i've suffered from this for many years now & doesnt seem to have been an issue in the past in regards to soreness.)

- Shocking my muscles with new combination workouts. As i stated i started doing what you guys were saying in that thread about shocking your system and doing particular combinations on day of work out.



These are the only real 2 factors i can really think of that is causing the soreness. Though i have been getting around 7 to 8 hrs of sleep per night lately i do sleep on average on or after 12am (studies show sleeping before 12am equates 2 hrs of sleep per hr you sleep before 12am). I am still repaying sleep debt also so perhaps my muscles aren't repairing itself as much lately. And since i'm working the muscles pretty hard by shocking the hell out of them w/ different workouts every day perhaps the shock and the lack of repair is taking it's toll a little and causing the excessive soreness and consecutive day soreness.

Might be worth mentioning also that this is all occurring while i am trying to gain weight and eating more junk food/carbs. I was on only 50g of carbs per day prior to gaining so this may be a factor?

I've also been eating only bananas the last month or so. Though i have been juicing for my wife recently (haha that sounds sick ) and my only other intake in fruits (apples, oranges) is in the juice. I used to have fruits every morning without fail prior to this. Not sure if all this even matters.


since my upper body is still sore today i will work on legs today.

Seriously man, soak in a tub of hot water and epsom salt and you'll get relief.  http://www.saltworks.us/salt_info/epsom-uses-benefits.asp

It works.

yeah i do muscle salt soaks for some relief too

My pt is it's highly unusual for me to be not only this sore but sore for long periods of time. So either i am pushing my body much further these days or something is up. Not a really big concern but just hoping to get to the bottom of it as i do have 2 kids, family and work. The discomfort can add to some stress some days.

nothing will cure overtraining/sore muscles but rest. Pick your spots when you are not fatigued and feeling strong - then attack.

Training is a science of mind control. Train hard but train smart.We all fight the urge to push it one set further, that's all it takes to pancake ya..

maybe you have DOMS?

my soreness the next day is significantly reduced if i sit in a cold bath after my workouts. takes some time to get use to it and most people would rather suffer soreness than garbage in cold water.

back to normal. i really dunno wtf happened there.

I've been doing quite well. No excessive soreness. I was also having sore neck problems almost daily and that whent away also. Stress? anxiety? lack of sleep? over training? i can't quite pinpoint jusy glad to be back in business.

Winter down here in Australia so now working hard to get in best shape for summer.


Cheers for all your replies

You need a chiropractor my friend

After years of working out, sports, activity, etc. your spine and other joints/bones need to be adjusted.  If your spine gets out of whack just a little it affects tons of muscles and ligaments in all parts of your body.  I've played sports, and worked out my entire life, and I experienced soreness in my neck and went to the chiropractor last year and about passed out when I saw how bad my spine was on the x-rays.  I went 2 days a week for a couple months, and I haven't felt this good in years.  I still go once a month to make sure everything is adjusted properly.  My posture is better, my workouts are better and my sports performance is better.  I have spoke to several people who have gone to a chiropractor and they have said the exact same thing.  Go to a chiropractor and get a free consultation, and see what they say.  If you need adjustments, it will be the best you ever spend.  GL, and if you have any other questions on my experience just let me know.

Very true, train to impress yourself and feel good, not others. I train for the sole purpose of punking 20+ year olds on the garbage that would be laughed off of a stage. That's just me though.

Who else can can I (we) compete with...too old..

Lil pukes.

Under train dude, you'll dominate. Good luck.

Glad you're in better shape.

I'm not certain i need any adjustments and it may help me some but my situation wasn't that serious. I actually think it was the lack of sleep & wasn't recovering/recouperating properly had i had my proper 8 hrs sleep per night.

It's been a couple of months now that i have had no problems w/ soreness post workouts.

I'll be 35 yo by the end of the month. This is the fittest i've ever been!! I play basketball regularly and run against these quicker and more athletic 18 yo's and it seems i haven't lost a step. Old age ain't got squat to do with anything my friend.
