  • Ha. This guy looks like he would rather be anywhere else except in front of a camera! Hope his bedside manner is a little better. Oh, and Tufts Medical Center only has 1.37k subs? Might be time to hire a media person?

  • How about recovering right? Having proper nutrition and learning to not Overtrain (if you want to call it that) what kind of doctor is this?

  • I know exercise is important but with that we need some good suppliment to, I personally tried but..
    Then I tried shorturl.at/INWX3. Believe me it helped me. A full muscle training plan and much more..
    You should try it once����

  • Actually i love that muscle sornees i always press those hurting muscles that feel is kinda satisfying,and always keep moving them.

  • It’s so damn annoying because only one arm and one leg seem to be actually sore and the others are just fine and mislead me into typically thinking I’m fine until I use my sore arm and leg lmao

  • False. Lactic acid builds up when you work out. It doesn’t cause actual muscle soreness. Micro tears in the muscle from working out causes the soreness…do your research. For years people thought it was the lactic acid that made you sore, but recent study over the last few years or so say otherwise.

  • Can i ask questions sir..
    Last day It was my first gym work out then a few days after that my muscle such as arm is painful.. To the point i can’t straight it properly,is that a normal?
    Need urgent comment sir

  • The soreness later on is from delayed onset muscle soreness from microscopic muscle fibers being damaged from the load being placed on it from working out, not from lactic acid (technically just lactate)

  • Kudos for the video content! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion.

  • I’m used to this pain lol I mean I still get this shit and it hurts after not working out for awhile but once it heals oh my friend you won’t feel the pain anymore

  • Bro I dont feel the muscle soreness for that much long after workout. Maybe its because I already had a workout based lifestyle? From what I can understand, someone who goes all the way from a sedentry lifestyle to an intense muscle workout would experience long period of muscle soreness.

  • Am I a weirdo for actually enjoying having Doms? I find getting really sore muscles rubbed incredibility enjoyable….Oooh that sweet, sweet feeling that makes you scream when they’re massaged! It’s the finest of lines between pleasure and “pain”.

  • I did intense cardio at 5.30 am. I slept at 8 am for an hour, i slept at the afternoon noon,i will sleep at night,and right now my body is in pain like a bitch��

  • Never ever touch the muscles as your irritating it while body is healing it and will take longer,idiots taught from big pharma to buy drugs, never touch soreness commen sense,,goes with tennis elbow since always massage it disrupt body healing never touch it since a scratch need to itch type thing leave it alone so it can heal
