The ony way you should get pain from pumping iron is if you are doing it wrong.
Pain means something is wrong, and it is quite different than DOMS.

I keep moving and that helps if I have any Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) from a previous workout. I also don't sit for too long if I can help it as sitting too long hurts! Really. I work a call center job right now with a strict schedule adherence requirement so I can't just walk a lap as needed (and I really need it but I literally could get fired eventually if I am not meeting metrics). I have a desk at least that I can raise so I can stand for a awhile which helps alleviate some of the stiffness of being chained to a phone. I also walk on my breaks.

Keep gently moving those muscles; NSAIDS *if* you can safely take them, heat before your next LIGHT workout and after the workout gentle stretches...

If you're talking about joint pain... then I would say rest up, ice/heat, NSAIDS (if you can safely take them) and if you still feel it in 2-3 days, then check in with your doctor!

Pain versus soreness is a big difference. Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong and you should stop until you can sort out what's causing the pain and find a remedy or workaround. Soreness is well used tiredness. Making sure that you are adequately hydrated, fueled, rested and working within your limits can minimize soreness.

-google first. ask questions later.

Are you talking about DOMS ? Delayed onset muscle soreness you feel the day after an intense workout ?

I suggest taking a good yoga class. I've found that a good yoga class helps me work out the kinks caused by a tough strength training workout.

If you've never done yoga, I recommend starting with a beginner class if possible. If you can't afford a class, check out YOUTUBE. look for beginner stretches. There are techniques I learned in yoga that helped me improve my ST workouts.

If you're not doing a post workout stretch, stretching helps reduce the ache.

Hi!

An important thing is to distinguish between muscle soreness that can be normal after a workout and actual pain. Please check out this article that explains the difference and gives tips on easing muscle soreness:

I hope this helps!

How do you deal with pain? Please exempt ongoing pain from an ailment. I'm talking about the pain from pumping iron to fatigue.
