3. The Problem With Using Muscle Soreness As A Guide

Muscle soreness tells you if you’ve done more than you can handle.

It tells you if you can handle a little bit more.

It tells you that you’ve recently done something new, different, or that your body wasn’t used to or even ready for.

But, it doesn’t really tell you how well or poorly you’ve performed. It may define quantity more than quality. So be careful there.

I hope you found these posts interesting. Informative and helpful.

Eat Clean. Train Hard. Feel Great

Right and wrong exercise can have the same results.

Wrong exercise may not be good for you in the long run — causing pain, discomfort and injury — but in the short term it can still help you drop weight, shed fat, and build muscle.

In that regard, Biggest Loser works. Crossfit works. Zumba works.
Fit Camps work. Everything works.

And if it’s different enough, you’ll be sore.

Muscle soreness is welcomed sensory feedback.

Just remember, it’s a signal that your muscles are damaged and your performance is compromised. It also means — especially for the beginner — that you’ll be better off helping the healing process through recovery methods, as opposed to continually upping your workout intensity and pushing the envelope. That’s why my clients have rest days, rest intervals and De load sessions.

Muscle soreness is one way of judging your workout. It means something. It just doesn’t mean everything.

Make One Small Change

21 Tips 2 Weight Loss Tips From 1000’s of People Who Lost Over 50 Pounds

8. Make Small Changes
Make small changes consistently until they are habit and you no longer have to think about it, and then make another change. There’s no need to completely change your lifestyle all at once. You’ll be much more likely to stick with your new healthy lifestyle if you make small changes. Try changing one thing at a time. I think you need about 21 days to form a new habit- so plan One Small Change today.
You might choose to add an extra piece of fruit daily or a side salad to your evening meal.
Perhaps have a glass of water with every meal…. It must be a SMALL change that isn’t that hard to fit into your normal routine.

Good luck, plan your change and let me know how you get on.
