If your muscles are so tender and it feels like you have over done it...
If your muscles are so tender and it feels like you have over done it, you might want to sit out a day, until you feel better. But, if you just feel a slight tenderness in the muscles, the best thing you can do is get some blood running through them. Remember these things and you’ll have a safe, productive workout:
* Warm Up for 5-8 minutes on some kind of cardiovascular machine.
* Once warmed up, give your muscles a good stretch.
* Begin your workout. If you feel too sore, STOP and come back the next day.
* Don’t blow off your cool down. This is the best time stretch and to work the toxins out of the muscle. A good cool down will make you sleep better and feel better, not only the day of your workout, but you’ll feel better for your next workout.
