The first couple of days after a new strength training workout are usually painful for me. I usually wait an extra day before doing it again. Your body will adjust and each one will get easier and hurt less.

THAT IS BECAUSE THE WALKING IS DOING IT'S JOB.

Light activity would be my recommendation, walk, gentle bike ride, etc. I've found that stretching is a really good way to relieve soreness (after a gentle warm up...no good stretching cold muscles).

Usually the second day after a strenuous activity is the worst for soreness, so you should notice it starts getting better after today. I'd recommend some light activity (like a walk followed by easy stretching), to keep you from getting stiff.

Hope that helps,

I have been pushing myself hard this week. On Tuesday, I did a circuit workout from fitness magazine called bikini body boot camp. Today (Thursday) my legs are sooooo sore! They were sore yesterday as well but the thought of trying the boot camp workout again today makes me cringe!

Should I take the day off? What can I do to recover quicker?
