Muscle soreness after training Should I continue to practice or should I rest?
Before answering this question, let's first understand the causes of muscle soreness. There are two reasons for this. The first is that we have high intensity and negative weight during training. This kind of training can cause damage to muscle fibers, such as The muscle fibers break or tear a part. The second reason may be that the number of trainings is relatively frequent, and the weight has reached a relatively high level. During this process, lactic acid in the body will precipitate and accumulate.
However, each body is different. Some people have a lower ability to accumulate lactic acid and eliminate lactic acid. Then they will have a longer time to sore. If you recover after about three days, the chest muscles are still painful. In two days, the body's lactic acid is discharged to the outside of the body as much as possible. Generally, the chest muscles, arms, shoulders, and back can recover well in 6 to 7 days.
But if you fall into the first category and have a relatively large damage to muscle fibers, you need more time to recover. You must not bite your teeth and continue to train the same part. Otherwise, it will have an opposite effect. Will cause the muscles to be broken down.
In addition, it is recommended that you do some aerobic exercise, because long-term aerobic exercise can accelerate the decomposition of lactic acid in the body, so the time of muscle soreness will be reduced.
