Muscle Does Not Hurt After Exercise?
HealthReplies.com. My name is anto, 28 years old. I want to ask about my muscles, which are now never sick again after training, especially the bicep and triceps muscles. I practice alone at home using barbells with techniques from various sources on YouTube. When you first practice it hurts up to 4 days, as well as doing squats and situp benches. I once added weight to my barbell, indeed to reach failure muscle faster and rarely did I get 3 sets with 8-12 reps. But the next day I only felt pain for a while and at night I was still able to exercise again. Is my muscles already used to and normal like that? I happen to be in the mood to train my body, and with this condition (fast recovery) I exercise six times a week, if I don’t just focus on bicep muscles, because my body is skinnyfat type , I also train my abdominal muscles and also lower body with a new cardio load scheme first. All exercises are light and done every day. I am waiting for the answer, because I am a dilemma to train my body every day, but many say recovery or rest day is necessary.
Pain or pain in the muscles after heavy exercise may be a DOMS / delayed onset muscle soreness. DOMS can occur because of a buildup of lactic acid in muscles that are forced to work hard without heating enough after a long time not trained. But DOMS can also be associated with muscle injuries when practicing.
DOMS is quite common in the early days of training but when it's routine exercise, generally DOMS is not too heavy like the beginning or even do not feel DOMS at all. If you don't feel pain after practicing right now, then you don't need to worry.
However, you should still give the body a chance to rest in between exercises because rest is also important for muscles. You can practice / exercise 3-4x / week or according to your ability. Too forced yourself to exercise heavily can increase the risk of injury, muscle damage, fatigue, to kidney disorders due to severe muscle damage.
I suggest that you consult first with a sports doctor or with a professional fitness instructor if you want to do more intense exercise or more often yes.
Hope it helps you,
