Seriously.

So today I was training someone at the gym, and I overheard this lady saying to her husband(?), "I'm not doing that machine today because it made my back sore." And I was kind of just thinking, 'hmm...I think that's the point.'

Being sore just means that you caused tiny, micro-tears in the muscle, which is the reason why your muscles repair themselves and build themselves back bigger and stronger! But for some reason, a lot of women think that it's bad to be sore and that it's supposed to be EASY to lift weights. Uh...no.

Well, not if you really want to get results!

Being sore is not always a bad thing. To me it just shows that I worked my muscles really hard! I did back today, and I sure hope it's sore tomorrow!! : )
