That doesn't sound like an overly amount of work, but you need to find something that works for you. If you do this for a week, and then hate how much time it takes and your soreness level you need to back off or you'll stop after a brief period of time. Do an amount you can keep up full time. If you can commit to that amount for a few months then good for you! If not, there's nothing wrong with backing off a bit to ease yourself in

oops sorry, didn't see that this thread was started back in January. My bad

Carolyn, I agree with everything you said, however I think that if your legs are shaking from going down 10 stairs it sounds like you might be going a little overboard as well? I mean I know a little soreness is good but that sounds like more than that. Obviously, everyone knows their own body's limits, but that's just my friendly advice! :)

Carolyn is right. Some soreness is to be expected, but it shouldn't hurt to do regular activities. Because I was prone to injuries as a child, I am completely devoted to taking a rest day every week. I exercise every Monday thru Saturday, and take Sunday off regardless of whether I am sore or not.

There is a common misconception that being sore after a workout means you got a good workout. This is not exactly true. When we workout we create micro-tears in the muscle and when those tears begin to heal that is what makes you sore. While working out every day is fantastic itís usually a good idea to take some days off throughout the week. Giving our muscles a change to recover is what makes them stronger. Those are our recovery days. On the other hand, being sore is normal. When I gets to the point that I cant wash my hair because I cant lift my arms up that high or it takes me an entire minute to get down 10 stairs because my legs are shaking they are so sore, that is usually when I decide to take a recovery day and just let my muscles rest. Hope this helped emoticon
Keep up the good work though, i promise it will pay off!

ok so i have been back to college for two weeks now. since day one i have been going to the gym everyday (doing 40 min of cardio and a few upper body exercises) then i joined a kickboxing class that meets every tuesday and thursday. lately though i have been sore all over. so am i overdoing it? or is this just the price one pays to lose weight?

i'm just curious
