Myth Busting with Hannah – Muscle HAVE to be Sore

Myth: The more sore you are, the better the workout you got.

It’s time to bust this myth. Let’s chat. Muscle soreness is more an indication of using your muscles in a different way than usual. Everyone’s different: some people feel sore very easily, and others never feel sore. Just because you’re not really sore doesn’t mean you didn’t get in a great, effective workout.  The most important questions to ask yourself are: 

  • Have I used good form with the appropriate weight for the exercise?
  • Did I allow myself time to recover between sets and between workouts? 
  • Most importantly, did I enjoy the exercise?
