Getting in Shape

anyone had this happen?

ok so i'm not new to working out at all, and this has happened a few times in the past, but more often these days: after a hard workout (usually the next day or so), my muscles will actually be sore to the touch - not like oxygen-debt soreness that you feel when trying to move, but actually skin-contact sore. anyone familiar with this? any trainers who can tell me what's going on?

    Make sure you're warming up and stretching if you have time before your workouts.

    Don't lift more weight than you can handle. For arms (ie) start with 8lb weights do 4 reps of 12. You should be able to do that with not a lot of struggle. Then gradually move to 10lbs, etc.

    My legs will always be sore if i haven't worked out in awhile. Being sore is a good thing - that means your muscles got a workout. Try not to work out really HARD one day then other days slack off. Keep your workouts consistent without over doing yourself.
