Ayla2010 Posted December 18, 2012 Share Posted December 18, 2012 OK so up until around 7 months ago, I was doing CrossFit 5 days a week, and while I did get some muscle soreness, it was not long lasting and not bad enough, so I was able to ignore it and just carrying on working out through it. Then stuff happened, and I stopped paleo and stopped all exercise (besides walking our dogs). Fast forward to now, and 2 days ago I started the starting strength program (first day deadlifts, squats and overhead press). The weights I used were well below half of my maxes from CrossFit. I warmed up using the empty bar (and lighter bar for overhead press). Since then I have been pretty much not been able to walk and my legs are that sore they seem to give way at times when I am walking along. Did I just over do it? Should I do something else? Or just bar weight only for a while? I don't remember ever being this sore, even when first starting CrossFit. Did I break something? LOL Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
