When you are working your muscles and switching it up often, soreness will happen. When you are doing a program like CLX and working out at least 6 days a week, soreness will happen but all soreness is not the same. I'm currently doing Turbofire and CLX but I can tell the difference between regular soreness and over-exertion. If I wake up in the morning and my joints are so tired and achy I can barely make it down the stairs, it's time to take a couple of days off. Listen to your body. Try taking a couple days off and if that helps you may need to schedule some breaks in your routine for recovery purposes. Your body actually likes those recovery times and when you workout after taking a day or two off, you will notice how much better you can perform.
You may be pushing yourself too hard. I did that during the last time I did PUSH, and came to realize I was lifting too heavy, not breathing properly, and just plain wearing my body out. Your body can tell you a lot, and sounds like it's telling you to maybe ease up a little.
Hi - my workout routine is pretty similar to yours and, yeah, I'm a little sore pretty much all the time. Think about it: Each of the three circuits works out different parts of the body (using heavier weights than you may be used to), then we're doing things that work other areas on the off days. Is the soreness muscles or joints? If muscles, then I'd suspect it's just your body adjusting. If it's joints, you may want to check with your doctor about the possibility of osteoarthritis. Nothing to panic about - I take mobic to help with mine and the doc says exercise will help keep it in check. I think in one of the videos in the Push month (where I am right now) Chalene herself says she's sore most of the time because she's always changing up her routine. Hope this helps, Gina
I am just getting back into really working out. I am doing the ChaLEAN Extreme ST videos doing the C25K Program on T-Th-S and doing the Elliptical Zumba or Turbo Jam M-W-F along with ST on M-W-F. My question is the last couple of weeks I have been sore and achy and tired. I've been taking Ibuprofen and Tylenol. I'm still really sore. I don't get it. Has this ever happened to anyone and if so does anyone have any suggestions?
