Muscle soreness after exercise

It’s pretty normal to have some degree of muscle soreness after exercise, particularly if you are new to pilates. You will notice some muscle soreness after sessions as you will be using muscles you didn’t even know existed. This tends to be particularly evident in people who are new to exercise or returning after an injury.

As you progress and move up in levels, you’ll notice that because of the challenge, your muscles will be a little bit more sore than usual after your class but this is ok, it just means that you are pushing yourself harder and a good sign that you are taking your work out to another level.

So how can you minimise the burn the next day? Make sure you eat well, drink plenty of water and get a good night’s sleep. This will give your muscles time to rest and repair, this is vital and it’s how muscle grows. Muscle grows at rest that’s why we are not at fan of these

“30day challenges”, they don’t give enough rest time for the muscles to repair and will only open you up to possible injury, you need to rest.

Massage used to relieve pain after exercise


Massage is an excellent way to relieve muscle tension and stiffness which is also available at Evolve and foam rolling out larger muscle groups is also a technique that we really favour. It’s also important to listen to your body, you should not be so sore that you can’t get out of bed the next day!! If you are concerned that you’re experiencing pain out of proportion to what you should be feeling, come in and have a chat with us, that’s what we’re here for.
