Is your body tight and sore?
If you are having pain in your muscles and joints, then you may have a soft-tissue injury. But don’t worry, most things you can ease quite easily.
If you are experiencing sore muscles a day or two post-exercising than there is a likelihood you are experiencing DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). DOMS are really nothing to worry about, but recommend you don’t go training those muscles again until they have recovered. DOMS can lead to a muscular strain if not given the time to recover.
If you feel pain but it doesn’t stop you from moving, then it is likely an issue with your mobility or flexibility. Mobility is the movement you have in your joints, and flexibility is the range of movement you have in your muscles. When the body is stiff, either due to DOMS or prolonged periods of sitting, or being overexerted, this can reduce your range of movement in both joints and muscles.
Whatever the reason, if your body is feeling tight and sore, and if you aren’t sure what is happening, then it is worth taking a step back and reviewing your training. This may give you insights into what has caused your injury, or indeed lack of movement that impacted it.
