The thing with soreness is this. If you don't push your body past it's comfort levels, then you don't get much in the way of results. But if you push too hard, you end up so sore you can barely move at allwithout signifcant pain! As your body gets more fit, the level of soreness will drop very substantially, and often times disappear altogether until you do a really hard WO, or change something up in your WO and start using different muscles. Stretching before and after a tough WO can help with the soreness as well. Myself I like to feel some soreness after a tough WO. It lets me know I'm pushing things and getting results. But being sore to the point you can't function is not good!

I am new to this site so not sure if my post are making it to print. Well, here's the deal. Growing old is a gift, looking old and being weak is a curse. Getting in shape takes work and determination. Eating clean is even harder, but the results are awesome. My wife and I are in the gym 4 to 6 times a week. It's old school training for me and regular workouts for my wife. P&L

It wasn't only working out that wasn't possible. Moving at all was an problem. I had to go to work and it was horrible. I also couldn't do my main workout, which is pole for a week because I couldn't raise my arms.

he was so freaking hot too what a shame.

PG: any personal trainer who repeatedly leaves you in such debilitating soreness the next 24/36 hrs that any other workout isn't possible--should be fired. glad you fired that one.

its good to challenge one's body; it's not good to cause actual pain. *just* past the edge of "able" and into "not sure i can" is where i like to push.

Its not your PC its the stupid fora and formatting issues.

Next to last personal trainer I used, while I would have loved to have fucked him, sucked at his job. He made me so sore (yes sore is good to a point) that I could barely walk or lift anything for a week. Made working and caring for horses and kids a pain. Literally.

It's always much easier to stay motivatedonce you get in a good groove! Boy I don't know what's up with my PC with all these words joined together! I even ran the spell check just to be safe, and it came up perfect! Then there is 4-5 words without a space between them! Oh well go figure! BTW I just read a VERY interesting article about crossfit training and how NONE of the winners, or major contenders in those competitions, actually trains using the accepted crossfit protcol they teach at those gyms!

I broke my 22-day no-workout streak yesterday and in around 15 minutes will head back in. I hate cardio for the sake of cardio - when the weather's OK I ride my bike a lot (like, a lot - 50-80 miles at a go) or we play tennis. But I can't stand cardio gym equipment. I only do weight training in the gym.

Once I'm "in" (maybe 5 days in a row in the can) then it's easy to stay in, and I begin looking forward to it again. But after a disruption (a vacation, a cold, whatever) it's so hard to get my ass back in there again.....

Hey VAbeach,

I think nearly everyone struggles with the mental aspect of staying motivated to work out. The physical part can be tough, but it's lack of long termmotivation, that sabotages most people from getting, or staying fit. The best thing you can do is try to make your workouts more interesting. For the ladies that can mean Zumba, or some sort of dance workout, even possibly pole dancing. Dancing workouts can be a really great workout, while still being enjoyable! You should still try to incorporate some strength training though! For the guys it can be a bit tougher making the WOs enjoyable, although biking, or playing basketball can be great cardio workouts! But when you're grinding out the heavy reps during strength training, I find the best motivator to be, thinking about how great allthis pain will make your body look to the ladies! Changing up your strength training a bit, can keep things moreinteresting as well! Of course for those of you who can afford a personal trainer, they are always a huge help with the motivation, as long as youget your butt to thegym first!

I don't mean pain... I mean the mental part. The thing is I no longer want to do it. I have to force myself against my will for around 4-5 consecutive days, and from then on my body forces me.

best bet?

for every 5 days that you're away from your normal fitness routine, set aside one hour for fitness. dedicate 40-45 minutes to cardio (power walk, run, bike, elliptical--whatever you can access)

dedicate ten minutes to minimal strength: freestanding squats, push-ups etc

final five, get in 100 straight crunches.

not a cure all by any means but getting back to it should be less painful.
