The squats with weights are great, do you use the machine or are you using free weights Question

cheers cheers

Free weights. The personal trainers in the gym tell me that free weights are better because it also works your core muscles so I don't do any machines. For example, when I work on my arms, I sit on the swiss ball with my legs together. When I first started doing this I was very wobbly but as my 'core' started to strengthen I dont wobble as much.

I also find that when I do free weights I get a better cardio workout (imagine that, cardio from weights!) When I'm on the machines I don't feel my heart race at all, even if I'm using heavier weights than the free weights.

p.s. this is all just information I was given at the gym, and my own opinions - if you disagree, please don't bash me people

I do a lot of free weights squats and lunges as well. For a more advanced set, try squats on the bosu ball (it's the half looking ball with a flat base). It really helps the core since it entails balancing and stability. Other low wining leg exercises include sqaut holds, step ups and leg presses. You can do your squat holds with your back against the wall or without. 45sec-1min increments.



I love the squat holds (on the wall that is) and the leg presses.

A couple of ibuprofens should help. It usually works for me after long runs etc. You also try a warm bath in epson salt.

What I was told to do is drink lots of water the days after you work out to lessen the muscle pain - and you know what, it really does work for me!

At first I found it difficult to drink the recommended 8 glasses a day (more on exercise days). The trick is not to drink a full glass of water at a time but to have something like a bottle that has the pop up top so that it forces you to take sips - and take sips all day rather than gulp it down. This way you dont need to go to the bathroom all the time as your body will absorb the water rather than just flush it straight out.

great news is the ibuprofen worked, I couldn't find epsom salt in long island so I did a warm bubble bath, either way I feel much better! I have to meet her again for some weight training to day at noon, i'm off work today so I'm set, my body still has pains here and there but not horrible, (note to self never stay away from working out that long yeessshh)

mysti77 I'm gonna try that water routine today, I drink alot of water already but I'll try it the way you suggest.....

on a separate note is it a bad idea to pop 2 ibuprofen before I work out? especially if I know I'm gonna be in pain anyways, is it a good idea or not?

Good tip on the water. As for popping the ibuprofen before you work out....I wouldn't do that. Keep in mind the pain is only temporary. After a few days you wouldn't be experiencing unbearable pain or any pain as a matter of fact. I would stick to taking the ibuprofen if needed after your workout. Besides, I don't think ibuprofen has preventative attributes so you may still end up taking more after you work out. Don't let the soreness stop you though. Doh worry girl, it's just a little lactic acid churning in de muscles and that's a good thing.

Oh and you may try Walmart or CVS for the Epsom salt. I'm not in NY but I recently purchased at those stores.

Actually ibuprofen works better the earlier it is taken. If you KNOW you will have pain you can take it about an hour before the pain should start, but workout pain doesn't usually start while you are exercising. As a matter of fact the workout usually warms up the muscles and eases the pain. Until you get to the point it doesn't hurt anymore the better way would be to take the ibuprofen as soon as the 1st hint of pain (don't wait until it gets bad) or an hour before you have been able to predict the pain usually starts. The really impt thing with the pain that occurs shortly after workout is water. Like BC said that burning (as opposed to the stiffness that occurs later) is due to lactic acid buildup and you need lots of water to flush that out.

well I did pretty good with the weights, I was actually proud of myself, my upper body hurts more than my lower body but it's not ridiculous, I am looking forward to when the pain stops I don't know when that is though, hopefully it's soon lol
