The Pitfalls of Getting Sore from a Workout

There’s nothing wrong with getting slightly sore from a workout.

The problem happens when muscles get badly broken down.

One of the issues is skipping future workouts.

….but I notice an even bigger mistake people make when their workouts make them excessively sore.

They tend to eat more food.

It’s easy to rationalize eating more when you are sore.

You may believe that it will make you heal at a faster rate…or that the food will more likely get turned to muscle.

It doesn’t work like that.

Both my men’s program and women’s program are designed in a way to avoid excess muscle soreness.

There’s really no benefit to it.

If you mess up and destroy yourself with a workout, I recommend learning from that and backing off the next time you train that muscle group.

Instead of skipping a workout, get to the gym to keep activity levels up (with lower intensity)

…and make sure you don’t increase food intake.

Note: The only time you would want to increase food intake is if you are trying to bulk up (add fat and muscle).

I’m not a fan of bulking up unless I’m dealing with an extreme ectomorph.
