Tips on Getting Back to the Gym


822

Casey Keating, MD, Physiatrist, specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He regularly see patients who overdo it when returning to the gym after a lapse in their workout routine.
“Getting back to the gym and exercising safely and effectively is probably one of the most important things. If it has been awhile don’t be afraid to get a certified professional trainer to ease you back in to this process.”
Keating says he sees a common problem – people get back to the gym and want to do everything. “Then everything is going to hurt the next day and people go through a cycle where it gets hard to get back to the gym.”
Keating says, “There is normal muscle soreness, especially when starting a new exercise. That soreness should be pretty mild when you exercise, but it can slowly progress to worse the following day and even up to three days later, which is normal for muscle soreness, especially with a new routine.”
Keating says pain that is more than normal soreness from exercising might happen very acutely when you are exercising. “You might feel severe pain immediately. There could be swelling around the joint or bruising, and at worse, you may not be able to put any weight on it. It any of those things happen, definitely get a doctor to see you soon”, says Keating.
