I'm a free runner/Parkour person. I made the transition to working out a total of some days ago. I've been doing core and upper body workouts and have been dealing with aches and muscle pains. I assume my body isnt use to the change. But I want know if there's something I can do to ache less without cutting down on the workout. Any advice?

A bath in Epson salt really helped me! A friend that's a nurse suggested it & it really works!

Just stick with it...I know it can be bad and affect daily life to start with.

When I first started I occasionally on very bad days took 2 paracetamol which lessened the pain slightly but after a month or so (depending on how inactive you was) it stops.

Three components that will help is sleep, protein and keep moving.

I train every weekday working on muscle groups I get very little pain...(weekend off days when I stop moving and nutrition goes a little south, I get a little but easy to live with doesnt affect what I want to do.

Hope it helps

Do some good stretching and warm up and also a stretching cool down. This works best for me! Try it
