BodyRock 30 Day Challenge - Day TWO

 OMG!!! I am completely out of shape.
I woke up this morning sore from head to toes. I know it is kind of ridiculous to feel so sore just from the fit test. But I screwed up and forgot to stretch after the workout.
Because of that today's workout was really painful. But still going strong, and excited to see the results.

UPDATE - If you are following the challenge here is the video.

  1. Cindy Cindy...rs dont worry about the stretch after working out. Stretch is more important before than after. Although its generally good to stretch. When I dont go to the gym, I at least stretch...

    this is why you are sore today:

    24 hours to 48 hours after a hard workout, most people begin to experience soreness in the body parts trained. This is called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, or DOMS.

    DOMS is caused by tiny microscopic tears that occur in the muscle as a result of high intensity exercise (such as weight training, intense cycling, etc). After the workout, the muscle begins to rebuild itself (provided it is allowed enough time and nutrients to recover). This is the rebuilding process which creates new muscle that is bigger and stronger than before. In other words, your muscles are growing. Your muscles grow when you are at rest – not when you’re at the gym. (Retrieved from: http://www.dailymuscle.com/2006/03/31/muscle-soreness/)

    DONT GIVE UP!!!
