When you first start working out go slow and really listen to your body. Take at least two weeks before increasing your level of activity. This will allow your body to adjust slowly to your new routine and reduce soreness. This will help keep you motivated and set the right atmosphere for making exercise a habit. Remember it take about 6 weeks for a new routine to start becoming a habit.
