Turbulence Training – Day 2: Dealing With Muscle Soreness

by Susan · 8 comments

turbulence training fat loss workouts home workoutsHey All, I’m on Day 2 in my Turbulence Training review where I am actually using one of the fat loss workouts that Craig Ballantyne developed for his Turbulence Training program.

Yesterday I completed Workout A from the Turbulence Training workout Buff Dudes & Hot Chicks.

Oh yes, Virginia, there is muscle soreness.

One of the supersets I did yesterday that has me walking somewhat slowly today looks like this:

2A) DB Bulgarian split squats – 12 reps

  • no rest

2B) 1Leg SB leg curl – 8 reps/side

  • rest 1 minute then repeat 2x

Here is a video where Craig Ballantyne takes you through workout A from Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks:

Today’s activity is just 30 minutes of light activity. This should be something that will allow me to recover from yesterday’s workout and not hinder me from doing tomorrow’s workout.

My plan is to take a walk downtown but it has been pouring rain all day today. If it doesn’t let up I will have to come up with another plan.

Either way, whatever I do will be light.

Besides using up energy during this activity, Craig prescribes this light activity between workout days because the activity will help loosen up your muscles and get blood flowing to them because on day 2 you will most likely be sore.

Even if you are in very good shape, the simple act of switching to a new fitness routine will cause enough stress on your body to cause delayed onset muscle soreness.

I will also do a little foam rolling where I use a foam roller to sort of self massage muscles experiencing the most soreness.

I will also follow that up with some muscle specific stretching.

And hopefully, after all that and a good night’s rest, I will be ready for Workout B of Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks Turbulence Training Program.turbulence training fat loss workouts home workouts
