It’s Thanksgiving! An annual day of celebration, thanks and gluttony! As we all booze up and start cooking for the big dinner it is important not to let the feast ruin all the progress you’ve made on your journey of better fitness and healthier lifestyle. I am sure you don’t want to pack it all on now just to feel guilty about it afterwards and spend all the month of January trying to work it off. Besides, why wait until then?

Nothing like a good, strong, challenging workout to really get the blood pumping and the body moving, but why the hell am I so sore the day after?
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness or DOMS is the body’s response to increased stress and pressure put on your muscle, it’s that feeling of being stiff, feeling like an old man and if your lucky, being able to sit on the toilet without falling off. It occurs after a particularly challenging workout and especially after engaging in a new exercise routine. DOMS can occur after any kind of workout, as long as the muscles are pushed and engaged at a level higher and different then what they are familiar with. Did you push that extra mile in your run? Started swimming again? Added an extra 10lbs to your weight stack? Get ready to feel sore!
