gym-weightSore Legs? Go Run.

I’ve been adding weight training into my workout regime, and the inevitable result is sore legs. If you do squats and lunges, you are going to build muscle, but you will be sore as shit in the process. The last thing you’ll feel like doing is running, but trust me on this: go run.

Put on some easy-listening music because you need to go slow and steady. Running increases  blood flow to your legs, which promotes faster healing. The first mile is brutal, but don’t worry, it gets easier.

Just do a few easy miles, and by the next morning, most of your muscle soreness will be gone. Boom. — Amie
