  1. Hey guys, So two days ago I tried doing the NF semi advanced bodyweight routine. I got through it, but as I had a party to attend imediatly afterwards, I don't think my stretches were all that they could be. My question is, should I be working out today? I feel the pain is mostly muscle soreness, and not an injury. I'm pretty sure I can workout if it's not due to injury, but I thought I'd ask experts. (Y'all say you're not experts, but you're a lot smarter about these things then me.
  2. Morning folks, I've had an interesting development. Being a good gamer, I've always been able to sit comfortably for hours gaming, reading, etc. Over the past 4-5 years, I've lost around 60-80 lbs (depending on what you consider my 'start' date). I started strength/cardio training around September of last year and more weight/fat has been lost while gaining in strength. The problem I've noticed is that I can only sit for about and hour before I start hurting. The parts that hurt are whatever I'm sitting on (e.g. back of thighs, butt). It hurst most right when I stand up and then goes away within a minute. It happens pretty much regardless of the padding on the seat. Wife think's I've lost my "cushion" and therefore more weight in going onto bones etc. Anyone else have a similar experience? Or am I a mutant?
  3. I recently started a new factory job. Im on feet for 8 hours a day. Its by no means hard physical work i take parts (plastic car mirror parts) off a racks and turn around and put them in totes. But i am sore because my body isnt used to standing 8 hours straight. Do you druids think i would benifit from a few poses (no more than 5 or 10 minutes 445 is early and thats when i have to leave!!) If so what poses do you recommend?
  4. 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!

  6. Right now, my right, kinda top-ish, upperarm and middle back feel a bit sore in a sort of sickly, hurt way, and the rest of my body is still a little sore, too. I think it might be the result of trying to do bodyweight exercises and SS on two consecutive days. I wasn't thinking of bodyweight exercises as strength training, I was thinking of them as a way to keep my muscles active and my calories burning. Since I'm gonna be up until about 11:00 PM babysitting anyways and will have to get ready in an hour to about 30 minutes, should I still go to the gym and lift weights tomorrow, or should I just take a break and rest up for the six week challenge? It could help to spend the time figuring out my plan for those six weeks. I'm just afraid of losing time. Also, I'm concerned about my left arm being weaker than my right. I've noticed that it takes more to make my right arm tired, and that when I lift up a barbell, the left end lags behind the right end a bit. Yet at the same time, it's mostly my right arm that feels sore, right now. I've read that dumbbell exercises help remedy it, but I feel pretty committed to Starting Strength's barbell workouts, and I like how they workout my entire body...granted I still get quite a leg workout just from doing body (weight) squats.

  8. Posting here is a bit of a long shot, but maybe someone here can give me some useful pointers - either to an explanation or where to look. I'm not even sure which professional to call, except in any case it's Sunday, and not that urgent On Tuesday I started feeling uncomfortable sitting. I believe the polite term for the sore spot would be "glutes", but actually there's a whole collection of muscles in that area. As the week passed, the soreness moved down my leg, and also focussed primarily on the left side. First it got the back of the thigh. Now it's mostly resident in my calf. The spot in the calf feels like muscle tension - and it's preventing normal walking, producing a visible limp. I'm still uncomfortable sitting too long, and I also find myself shifting a lot searching for a comfortable sleeping position. Except the walking (hard to extend my leg backward, as if my achilles tendon were having issues) it doesn't interfere with movement, and feels like the kind of thing best dealt with by moving - I expect to be less stiff later in the day, walking normally - but still sore. I've continued my normal exercise routine in spite of this, because it doesn't interfere, and I originally thought it was DOMS. I also tried a foam roller with the butt, and "the stick" (another kind of roller) with the thigh, with indifferent effects. Tuesday to Sunday is too long for the explanations familiar to me - except perhaps a sprain, and sprains don't move, and do have swelling. The closest thing I've experienced is the pattern when I "put my back out" - the soreness/stiffness moves during recovery. But there's been no back involvement in this. Any ideas? Any clue what type of professional might be appropriate, or if one is? (My easy choices are fitness trainer, chiropractor, primary care physician.)
  9. H'okay. Sho. Little buddy is 8 weeks old tomorrow. Breastfeeding hurt like a mother for the first couple weeks (just for those first few sucks after latching on, then fine...latch and position are grand), then the nips toughened up or whatever people say for it and things were pretty groovy. Suddenly, my tatas are so sore and sensitive I almost can't stand breastfeeding anymore. They hurt in my bra, and when I bump into or brush against something....owies ensue. About two weeks ago I started the Zombies, Run! 5k training program. I've noticed the nipple soreness maybe since a few days ago? Cycles haven't resumed since delivering Mr Dude, and I honestly don't expect them to (hopefully) for several more months since we are feeding every 2-3 hours during the day with one 6 hour stretch at night. I haven't started BC yet, but I'm getting my IUD placed in two days. TL;DR I guess I'm blabbing all this to find out if anyone else experienced this kind of extreme sensitivity/soreness while breastfeeding due to running (I'm only going 4-5.5 km, with walking/jogging intervals). What did you do to help it? Is there anything to help it? I really don't want to be ovulating, or pregnant, so I hope this is the cause.
  10. So I recently revamped my resistance training plan and the ensuing muscle soreness seemed worse than I had expected. I was having trouble using my arms for at least 3 days after my workout last Monday causing me to cut other workouts down to a more manageable size to try and speed recovery. Before the start of this challenge I was doing a fairly simple routine: • 5 hall-pullups • 5 One Leg Bodyweight Half Squats (each leg) • 5 Pushups • 10s Bridge • 60s Plank • The last week or so I was also doing some misc. bodyweight work as part of a PvP challenge with Dawsy Starting on last Monday, the start of this challenge, I moved to a program I constructed during my recent reading of Overcoming Gravity. Warmup: • 1x5 Squats • 1x5 Kneeling pushups Skill Work: • 3x10s Bridges • 3x10s N-Holds (foot supported) on my way to L-Sits • 60s Wall Handstand Strength Focus: A1: 3x5 Pull-up negatives A2: 3x5 Floor Dips (I've got a set of parallelettes I've been using so my ROM is pretty limited) A3: 3x5 One-Leg Squats (each side) B1: 3x5 Push-ups B2: 3x5 Ring Rows (limited ROM right now due to strength issues but working on that) Mobility: • IT Band (I've got a tension band setup to help work my IT band) • 2x10s Straddle Stretch • 2x10s Pike Stretch That was the workout the first day, on subsequent days I've cut the full workout to 2 sets of Skill (and 30s handstand), 1 work set, and the mobility work. On the off days I've been doing 2 sets of the skill work and the mobility work. I'd like to be doing the full number of sets and reps of each section with the Strength section being 3/week and the other sections being every day. After doing the workout "as RX'd" on Monday my arms were somewhat sore Tuesday so I went with my original plan of Skill/Mobility day, and on Wednesday my ROM in my elbows and shoulders had gone to heck and it took a couple minutes of prep to be able to raise my arms over my head or fully extend my arms. This lasted a couple more days (with reduced but not eliminated training load) and by Saturday I think I had fully joint function back (though currently my right shoulder is hurting me a bit). My strength goals right now are to achieve bar muscle-ups, pistol squats, and a stand-to-stand bridge. These are in addition to my running goals and my diet goals of course but there they are. So my questions are these. Does that workout seem reasonable? How would you suggest changing it to help bridge the gap between my old workout load and my new workout load? On a scale of 1-Ophelia how crazy am I for doing this? Thanks in advance you guys.
