Making the time to exercise, developing a balanced routine, and establishing objectives are challenging enough, but throw in the muscular discomfort that comes with adjusting to a new habit, and staying on track may be difficult.

Muscle pain is natural after engaging in rigorous physical exercise, especially if it is something new to your body. When we exercise, our muscles are put under a lot of physical strain. Mild discomfort is a natural result of any type of physical exertion and they’re particularly common in the early phases of a program.

The steady increase in discomfort that happens between 24 and 48 hours after activity is referred to by exercise physiologists as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and it is entirely natural. DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is a frequent side effect of physical exercise that puts the muscular tissue under more stress than it is used to.

The mild muscle strain injury creates microscopic damage to the muscle fibers. Scientists believe that the pain is caused by this damage, as well as the inflammation that occurs as a result of the tears.

“The aches and pains should be minor, and are simply indications that muscles are adapting to your fitness regimen,” says Carol Torgan, an exercise physiologist and fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine,
