  1. NSAID - Non-steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drug DOMS - Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness Lately, my trainer has been pushing me a bit harder than he used to, and it's led to a few severe cases of DOMS. Generally, when the pain is bad enough to make me particularly uncomfortable or unable to work, I will take an Aleve or something (an NSAID). Generally, this is only once or twice a month, but two or three days in a row. I was reading something on WebMD about DOMS (I was seeing if there was something I could do to cut recovery time) and they said that NSAIDs can actually INCREASE recovery time. As far as y'all know, is this true? (Placed here, because I consider NSAID as a supplement.)
  2. Speak to me of how you care for your muscles and body after you workout. What do you do to ward off/lessen DOMS and to help your body heal? Do you use massage, nutrition, supplements, the Force?
  3. Hey Rebels! My name is Amber, However, I choose the name Samus because that is the amount of strength I want in my life. To not let the past dictate my future, but to help push me forward to better goals! I started reading nerd fitness in December of last year. I had just quit drinking soda (6-8 Cans of Coke a day), and was looking for the next step. An article on how to start eating vegetables (Spoiler: I had been eating exactly ZERO vegetables since grade school), a good kitchen knife, and a gradual shift to Paleo over the course of 3 months, and here I am. I'm now about 90% paleo. I still have tamari with my stir-fry (It's just so darn tasty). I started at 264 lbs. While transitioning to paleo, I lost 10 lbs. The NF articles helped me feel better about myself and kickstarted my Main Quest Line. I decided it was time to take it even further so I signed up. I did my first workout today in 6 years. I was in the army for some time. Then I got injured overseas and I was discharged. I had trouble losing weight even while in the military. My drill sergeants would tell me I could eat whatever I liked, as long as I worked out (Which was clearly wrong). Anyway, Sorry to jabber on. I started with the Beginners Body Weight Circuit, but without someone else there to check on my form, I worry that I'm not doing certain exercises correctly. I don't have a mirror big enough to check myself. Is there a way to feel out my body (IE: Tightness in certain body parts) if i'm doing things like the Plank position or lunges right? My goal is to be as strong as I can possibly be. Like Batman strong. I know that may seem unattainable. But I'm willing to keep going and striving for it one small step at a time (Though, I should probably start with being able to do a pull-up or a full set of regular push-ups). Thank you in advance and i'm looking forward to being apart of this community!
  4. Ok so got a serious case of DOMS in my quads from workout Sunday. Did light cycle yesterday then did second body weight workout this morning. I thought exercising again was supposed to help but it's even worse now. Legs are shaking can barely walk. Eating high protein paleo. Anything I can do to get over this ASAP? Figured I'd do another light walk or cycle this evening and tomorrow and another body weight workout Thursday. Should I continue or take an extra rest day? Anything I can do to ease the pain in the meantime? Thanks x
  5. So I am a new member here at the nerd rebellion and have just started to do the beginner body weight workout every other day with a light cardio day between to keep myself active and on track. (I'm a student, I have a lot of free time). Currently I have really bad DOMS in my legs and arms, I have tried ice baths/ice packs and heating pads (hot/cold alternating every 10 mins) to relieve some of the symptoms and speed my recovery. Just curious if there are any other ways to help relieve DOMS other than those two methods???
  6. So a big part of why I only get in one bodyweight a week is the fact that I get DOMS not the day after, but the day after that. It then hangs on for four days or so. I'm not sure what this means. I can complete my reps well, sometimes so well that I feel like I should go up to the next level on the progression, but I am completely laid out from doing anything more intense with my arms than using the salad spinner for almost a week. In the fall, when I did 3x/week bodyweight, this was not a problem. I was doing a shorter program, and easier progressions/forms, but still. I am warming up. I am staying hydrated. I am eating enough, I'm pretty sure. I am sleeping enough, definitely. Easily 8 hours a night, almost every night.. I am stretching. So I can't figure out what to do about this. I want to do more than one BW per week, but sometimes, after a BW on Sunday or Monday, I can barely get my arms up for Taiko practice Wednesday. This last week, I finally felt better FRIDAY NIGHT. From my Monday evening workout. Any advice? What does ridiculously long recovery time mean? Do I need to dial it back, alternating half-and-half days, instead of doing the entire program at once? Or pull back to easier versions of each progression, and do those until they're so easy I'm bored out of my skull? I'm using this: http://www.startbody...ic-routine.html And to specify, my worst DOMS is in my inner elbows and my armpits. Tight and sore, and weak, so I feel noodle-armed.
  7. Hello, I'm new to NF and loving it!! I've been following the alternate days bodyweight circuit/HIIT plan. I have a strength training question for anyone in the know about training. I've been doing the beginner's bodyweight circuit, and definitely find it challenging, and can feel my muscles working. I am noticing that I feel more up for physical tasks already - so I assume that it's helping. That said, I haven't been experiencing much soreness!!! I had maybe one day of soreness, and I stretched and it was better the next day. Now, despite continuing the exercises and upping my #s each time, I haven't experienced soreness. Am I still experiencing strength gains if I'm not sore? Thank you!

  9. Should one wait until muscle soreness is completely gone before working out again? I had weight lifting on my schedule today, but my muscles are still a bit sore from Thursday's workout. What do you think? Should I wait a day or go for it? Thanks!
  10. Hey guys. So I did my first body weight circuits on Monday which were great and I'm due for another session tonight, the thing is my legs are still very sore on my quads especially. Should I work out again through the pain or wait until they're not so sore - will I damage them? I'll be looking at some proper stretching methods today as I think mine are rudimentary at best. Any advice much appreciated
