I'm in Pain. - September 2nd 2012, 12:39 PM

Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood morning guys. My laptop is dying so I am going to make this sort. I train weights and sometimes I go reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally hard, doing 100 reps in my last set sometimes. That is great but the soreness and tightness it comes with isn't.

I want to do weights once every two days. If my muscles are this sore and tight on my next weights day, I am going to tear something, so.............

How do I take down the inflammation and tightness and muscle soreness within five days? It is rather painful and can affect my mobility of my arms and shoulders a lot, so yeah, pretty serious sometimes.

H.

I thought going into the spa would help but only made the swelling worse :/.

Hey H.
Have you thought about taking a break or just not working quite so hard? I don't think there is a miracle to make your muscles heal or what not in a number of days..but if they really do hurt that much then your probably going to hard. Just, take it easy for a few days and see if that helps.
Oh, and the doctor is always a good idea. <3
I hope I helped.

If you are in this much pain, you are over doing it. You need to cut down the reps and do it every other day or every two days. Try doing only 75 reps at a time. If that is still too much, 50. Then work your way up.

You won't get anywhere if you have to wait a week+ to workout again due to overworking yourself the first time.

As for your swelling, when you are in this much pain, it usually means swelling/inflammation. NEVER put heat on inflammation. Very very bad. Makes all the blood rush to that area, which causes more swelling.

Ice. Ice. Ice. Lots of it. 15 minutes, off 20, on 15minutes until you see some improvement. Then you can ice every hour for 15 minutes. Once you are feeling better and there is no swelling, heat before exercise for 10-15minutes, then ice after. Ice any time you exercise more than normal. The heat before exercise loosens up your muscles and helps them prepare. The ice then helps with any inflammation from working out.

Take some Ibuprofen (or something similar) for the inflammation and pain.

I understand what you are going through. Have you been stretching before and after your workouts? If not, I highly suggest that you do stretch before and after your workouts because it can help so much and it will decrease how long you will have the soreness for and the severity. If it's bothering you through out the day, try taking some over the counter anti-inflammatory medication(like tylenol, motrin, advil, aleve, etc.). At night time, right before you are getting ready for bed, try soaking in a hot bath with some epsom salts in it for half an hour or so, until the water is cold and not hot any more. If it is still hurting or it has gotten worser after you have done all of these things, then I suggest that you go see a doctor.

The next time you go and workout, don't over do it, just like what everyone else is saying. It's just going to make everything worser then it already is.

This is great advice if there is NO swelling, redness, or tenderness to touch. If there is swelling, use ice until it goes down, then start on heat. But until the inflammation (Redness, hot to touch, tender to touch) is gone, I recommend luke-warm baths or showers and ice.

The best would be to give yourself a rest or do fewer reps, perhaps even with a lighter weight. In the meantime, soak in a tub of luke warm water. Inspect the particular areas (or ask someone else) and see if there's anything unusual, such as bruising, odd lumps, swelling and test whether it's painful to lift a light weight. These can all be signs that you tore a muscle either partially or completely, as well as damaged any tendons or ligaments. If that's the case, it's only going to get 100% better in 5 days if you're Superman himself.

Re: I'm in Pain. - September 4th 2012, 10:29 AM

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaay, I'm better and back again . It turns out it was just routine soreness, only it was a LITTLE bit worse than normal, which is a good thing in it's own way because it means I worked harder.

Thanks soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for your comments, you guys are awesome. No, actually I don't stretch and yes, I may get into doing that before and after a session .

I wasn't doing 100 reps at the full weight, I was doing two sets of fifteen at 26kgs and then one epic set of one hundred at the end at 12.5, one hundred or until they fail. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo obviously I was taking my safety into account when I trained that day, I wasn't doing anything I knew I couldn't do, I take safety pretty seriously.

Aaaaaaaaah, I was wondering why Ice is a must with so many injuries, it is because it stops the sweeling .

I'm not Superman, I'm just that airborne kid next door with the red cape on his back . I didn't think I was going to get five comments LOL .
