I've been doing CrossFit for a year and a half or so, and I've realized that none of the workouts from around the past two months have made me feel sore in the slightest???and these aren't "active recovery" WODs, either. I recently hit a 15 lb... (more)

I was wondering does going paleo/low carb intensify muscle soreness? I feel great going low on carb high on fat/protein apart from muscle soreness, i kinda like the soreness a bit, no pain no gain, but surely it means im not recovering from... (more)
I used to eat huge amounts of spinach..at least a couple cups a day and after a while I wasn't recovering from my workouts and my muscles were always sore. Google searches turned my attention to oxalates. I stopped eating spinach for a couple... (more)
I had to switch from sweet potatoes to plantains for this very reason. Oxalates seem to mess me up bad (achy joints, bad sleep).
Hi all! I'm wondering how to reduce my post workout soreness after a good crossfit WOD. I'm currently only able to make it there 2 times a week because I need 2 full days to recover afterwards (my box is only open Saturday AM, which I can't make,... (more)
Lately, I've been doing a lot of walking/running/standing around so I'm basically on my feet all day, which I'm not really used to, so for the past few days, I've noticed my knees and hips getting a bit sore. But then yesterday, my elbows and... (more)

Quality sleep is an important part of Paleo, but I just can't seem to get it because I tense my neck and shoulder muscles in my sleep and wake extremely sore the next morning. Has anyone dealt with this and found a solution?
Have you tried Magnesium supplements? A lot of people have trouble with it but Natural Calm has done amazing things for my sleep. I always use to make fists and curl my wrists under me when I slept, in addition to a plethora of other sleep issues... (more)
Okay, so- my whole body is sore. Ridiculously so. Especially my legs and joints. Both of my jobs are physically demanding (decorative painting and Lowe's). I am climbing up and down ladders constantly, lifting 'heavy things', and am in pretty... (more)
So whenever I dead lift (standard, sumo, straight leg) my hamstrings are excessively sore for a few days. I can squat heavy with no problems but if I a do D/L's I limp around like an old man. I am sure I am a little tight in the hamstrings but I... (more)
I've made the transition to a standing desk, and now spend almost all my time computing there. The only problem is, that my quads start feeling tight after half an hour or so, and now they are almost constantly sore. My feet tend to hurt also... (more)

For the past month and a half I've had soreness and clicking in the hip area. I haven't really changed my workout although come to think of it I did start learning to front squat around that time. With an unloaded bar though. This makes squatting... (more)
I've been prone to sore feet as far as I can remember. I can't walk for more than about half an hour without my feet getting sore, and lately that's been a big problem because I live in an island community where everyone walks everywhere, and... (more)
one way to find out more - if you have a running store that offers gait analysis, that can tell a lot about your stride as well as how you stand. Some foot orthotics shops offer same service. If there isn't one near you, a podiatrist (or... (more)
what hacks/techniques do use pre/during/post workout to help mitigate* soreness after a tough workout? some stuff that has worked for me (mostly taken from MA days): -cold water dousing/exposure -self massage (I have a wooden stick--i.e. a... (more)
Might not be a paleo specific question, but I'm eating paleo so figured I'd ask here. What gets depleted when you over train that you should focus on replenishing? I am asking because whenever I over train and end up extremely sore, my mood... (more)
So, my most recent period was the 3rd week of November. For more than a week preceding it, I had the worst case of tender boobahs I've ever had. Even wearing wire-free bras were murder (I have A-cups). It took two weeks for the aching to subside,... (more)
Hi all, I've been exercising for 3 months (as opposed to being a couch potato for the past 38 years!). On average, I do 45 to 60mn on the treadmill, 4 times/week. I started walking. Then increased the incline. Now I do intervals (running/power... (more)
