Jen is wearing a white tank top and black capris while she is in a plank position on a set of dumbbells. She may be in the pain cave, haha.

Muscle soreness may be something you may chase in your workouts or rides, but is that necessary? And how do you know if your muscle soreness is okay to experience or not? What if it prevents you from training altogether? So many questions, so little time.

Somewhere along the way, us humans have started to think that soreness is a welcome feeling. We’ve started to think that we need to feel soreness in order to indicate that we’ve gotten a good workout, or are seeing progress or doing something right.

This is a myth.

Give this episode a listen if you want to know what to do to change your mind about muscle soreness.🎧
