• Inflammation occurs 24-48 hours after strenuous exercise as the body's immune responses work to repair damaged muscles. In any event, if you feel unusual pain during exercise, stop immediately.

      lol and here I thought you'd be a wealth of info on the subject! Hahahaha! You're right, though! If you want the benefits you gotta suck up the little pains and do the work! But if done properly exercise shouldn't cause excessive pain and when it does there's usually something wrong.

      Here you thought I'd be a wealth of information? I'll take that as a compliment. I am glad to know a lot is expected from me. Quote: "But if done properly exercise shouldn't cause excessive pain" The type of good pain is the burning muscle pain you experience while performing a physical activity such as weightlifting. In terms of intensity: the harder you work, the more you progress.
    • Linda Joy
      Yuup! It was meant as a compliment. You usually have good info in this area.

      It's always funny to see your comments displayed in a Yin and Yang fashion.
  • Mushroom is right. When you exercise you actually tear the muscle. The body then works to repair it. That's why in Nautilus you exercise one muscle group one day and a different group the next so the first can repair. Of course its possible you don't have good form while lifting and its damaging a particular muscle group or you may be lifting too heavy of weight too soon. Have you asked the instructors at the gym? Are you taking in enough protein? Protein is needed to build muscle tissue and potassium deficiency can cause cramps. Are you hydrating? Is it muscle aches, cramps/spasms or sharp pains and where are they located? Do you have a family physician? They're not usually helpful with weightlifting tips but they are usually good at finding out if something is wrong, and some don't charge for a phone call with a question. Of course they're usually going to want to see you. Have you asked the instructors at the gym how soon to increase weights and how much to go up and when? You can find it online, too. Just google reps vs weights. The nutrition info can be found online as well. Jenny Rizzo is a fitness enthusiast, she can probably help you with the more modern info.

      Quote: "Mushroom is right. When you exercise you actually tear the muscle." To share my fitness expertise: you mean, you actually "strain" a muscle which is common. If exercise lead to muscle tears as you and Mushroom suggest, everybody who exercises would be in need of surgery. The difference here, surgery is necessary to repair a muscle that's torn as opposed to one that is strained.
    • bostjan the adequate 🥉
      Jenny Rizzo, muscle strain and muscle tear are essentially synonymous. The only time surgery is required is when the muscle mass is torn all the way across.
    • Jenny The Great ⭐
      bostjan64, everybody knows injuries can be deceptive. Muscle strain simply means overstretched by a lack of exercise or by performing a new exercise the body isn't used to, but not torn until "confirmed" by the doctors. Besides that, I agree completely torn muscles require surgery.

      Jenny, maybe you're not as smart as I thought! They're called micro tears and they happen when you work out.
    • Jenny The Great ⭐
      Linda Joy, quote: "maybe you're not as smart as I thought!" ??? Nobody made you the expert, cause actually the word "workout" is not written in 2 words: Using the word "workout" is a noun that implies an exercise session, To your link, at least be specific with micro tears in your answer. I made it clear: "Muscle strain simply means overstretched" but nothing severely torn.
  • Ever experience a sharp pain in your elbow while doing bicep curls? This could be indicative of a few different issues, but the most common is lateral epicondylitis, or
  • muscles ripping and tearing
  • Muscles break down a little after a good workout and rebuild stronger over and over. It is suggested that you rest in between intense workouts to let the muscle rebuild.
  • In medical field, pain that occurs after performing weight lifting is termed DOMS (Delayed onset muscle soreness). Medicines belonging to class of drugs called NSAID’s are useful for treating pain associated with various conditions. Ibuprofen is a strong NSAID. The Ibuprofen dosage will vary depending on the condition of the user.
  • When muscles are needed to do hard work than they are used to, there will be chances of microscopic damage to the muscle fibers that results in muscle soreness. This occurs when you start a new exercise, change exercise routine or increase the intensity of regular exercise.
