Why do my muscles hurt after a workout ?

The first time I ever stepped into a gym I was very excited and could not wait to get started even though I was extremely intimidated by everyone around me. Little did I know the next day I would wake up in crippling muscle pain.

That morning my arms were bent and my body almost curled up into a position like a baby sucking its thumb. All I remembered was the extreme pain when I tried to move, I slowly dragged myself out of bed each morning and spent days in agony.  Only after about 5 days did the pain start to go away.

I guess the saying “no pain no gain” is really true...

So why does my muscles hurt so much after a workout? Well this happens because as you train especially using heavy weights your muscles tear when you flex them. The heavier the weight you lift the more it tears.  Now this tearing of the muscles is suppose to happen for a muscle to grow and the good news is that you don’t feel the tearing during training, its only after about 24 hours when the muscle needs repairing that you feel the pain and what’s better is that your body gets very used to this and later you do not even feel this pain ever again to the same degree. However, if you stop training for a month or more, you might likely feel this intense soreness again.

As weeks of training pile on, you will actually come to enjoy this pain as it means you had a great workout and very likely to see great results.

So if you are thinking of joining a gym and finally get the body you want don’t dread the pain, just remind yourself that it is suppose to happen and it just means great things are to happen.
