Personal Trainer the good the bad and the ugly

Friday, February 01, 2013

I have been trying to make this year work for me...I was 2 lbs short of my goal for January so I figured I still have personal training sessions left I might as well get back into it. I went wednesday I love the trainers because they really do push you harder than you would yourself. The issue is....They push too hard....It is been 2 days and I can barely move my arms..I am SOOOOOOOOO sore I cannot even make my arm straight without screaming in pain. Now I explained I havent strength trained in a long time so he already knew this was going to hit me hard. So now I am at work walking around looking like a TREX with my arms bent and close to my body because I cannot function properly. Anyone have any recovery tips I looked online for Delayed onset muscle soreness and only found a couple of tips. I am trying to stretch and ice my arms any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

    if you have access to a pool swimming a few lengths and then stretching in the water does amazing things.

    Light stretching, some anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen or Tylenol, and heat is what I would recommend. Anything with a lot of protein, like milk or yogurt, would probably help. And possibly cherry juice or berries followed up with some protein? I thought I read somewhere about antioxidants helping with recovery. Hope you feel better soon!
