Muscle Pain After A Long Absence Of Exercise?
So I want to ask, I want to exercise because I haven’t exercised for a long time, the exercise is to lift the barbell after exercising the next day my muscles hurt, if my arm is straightened like I’m tugging my veins. thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of muscle pain that occurs after a person has not done certain physical activities or sports for a long time can occur for many reasons, but most likely is a condition called DOMS. DOMS or delayed onset muscle soreness is a condition of pain or muscle strength that occurs from a few hours to several days after physical activity using certain muscles that are not normally used.
This condition is a type of muscle injury and occurs due to a buildup of lactic acid in the associated muscle. This condition is not dangerous and will improve on its own, depending on the person's endurance, nutrition, and weight of activity. When someone has DOMS, this should not limit their exercise, and they can still exercise even though they are painful.
The way to deal with this condition is by eating protein-rich foods such as tempeh, tofu, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, chicken breast, and beef and seafood, compressing the painful area with a warm compress, drinking lots of water and stretching slowly to sore muscles.
If after 7-10 days your pain has not subsided, is getting worse, or has severely limited your activities, you should check with your doctor to rule out other, more severe conditions. So, hopefully it answers your question.
