Get on the juice.
Cardio is very important - first make sure you are having a small carb meal before doing your cardio and lots of water - work up to your cardio - starting at 10 minutes tops - you want to be able to carry a conversation while you are working out. 30 minutes 6 days a week is excellant but shoot for 45 at least 3 of those days. It also depends on what type of cardio you are doing. Each moning eat a banana before you go to the gym - the potassium helps with muscle soreness. Walk on the treadmill for 10 minutes to warm up your body. Make sure you are stretching well before and after. I find the eliptical is easiest on the joints. Set the machine at either cardio or strength at a lower level to begin, with the idea of shooting for level 8-10 after 6 weeks. Work up to it.
Good luck and keep up the hard work.
Delayed onset muscle soreness usually occurs 2 days after a workout....it is normal - but you should not be sore to the point where you cannot walk, if this is the case you are overdoing it - the old saying "no pain no gain" is not the rule for which you should be following. Myself, in my past was an all natural bodybuilder - took creatine which really helped in adding that extra push we need to pull at our extreme capabilities or push for that matter as in pushing ones self. A hot tub does wonders as well as ibuprofen. A protein shake is a must after every workout. Try advantedge by EAS.
Remember Rome wasn't built in a day. Give yourself at least 6 weeks for any signs of improvement. And don't forget your cardio or your abs. The same muscles should not be worked on consecutive days. Consult a personal trainer, one who is familiar with bodybuiliding and not just running. When choosing a personal trainer pick one whom you might want to emulate - not the foxy thin girl. As in someone who has been there done that.
I find that having a hot bath or maybe shower as the guy above does the trick. So if you still have time after a workout take a hot bath
I'm in the same boat... I'm a 27-year old healthy male... I work out for about an hour and a half 6 days a week...
I tend to get sore two days after a workout - for example: I do chest on Monday, and Wednesday is when my chest is sore...
Other than taking a hot shower and self-massaging the sore muscles, there's nothing else I know of to take the soreness away...
I guess just be glad your workouts are working! Soreness means the muscle has been broken down... and will be rebuilt bigger and better with all the protein you eat!
