how long does soreness last when you start doing pushups, etc?

So yeah, how long will the soreness last when you start doing push ups, sit ups, crunch's etc until finally your body get's used to it?

Re: how long does soreness last when you start doing pushups, etc?

Pushups can make me sore for like 5 days. Abs I'm usually only sore the day I do it. I try to build up slowly enough that I'm only sore for a day or 2 at most.

i think your right, when i started doing crunches i was sore for about 2 days, but with my arms, are still sore, but i'm guessing that's b/c i never really did any excersises for my arms so they're not used to it

Re: how long does soreness last when you start doing pushups, etc?

Well I used to lift, but then I took a break and I never really got back into it...anyways about a year went by and then I started lifting again. I decided that since I hadn't lifted in a while that I should start off light. I did 1/3 of what I used to do and I was sore for about 1-2 weeks then the soreness went away and I decided to up the exercise and do 2/3 of what I used to do. I waited for about 1-2 weeks till the sore feeling went away and before long I was back to my old training routine.

I feel sore before and after exercising all the time, but I just work through it...I find that although you may feel too sore to exercise, you feel much better after you do it...so you might just have to push yourself through the first 10-20 minutes, but after that you'll feel alot better. Eventually your muscles will adapt to what your doing and you won't be as sore, I've also heard that stretching after workingout is a good way to prevent your muscles from being sore or as sore as they would be if you didn't.
