I don't recommend taking 2 motrins before and after. I am ALWAYS sore when I start a new workout routine, or up my intensity. A really nice warm bath and 1-2 motrin can do the trick. Also make you your are warming up and stretching those muscles really well :)

Also see if you can get the significant other to give you a massage! hhehe

I just did day 1 and was told it will get easier. I'm super sore too. Just drink water and hang in there!

I have started taking Glucosamine which helps with joint soreness. I find the Shred a wee bit hard on my knees. For the muscle soreness, try soaking in a bath of epsom salts. Works like a dream! Also, make sure you are staying well hydrated through the day!

It's all been said...drink plenty of water, take motrin and take a long warm bath...bubble bath's are nicesmile

By the third day or so the soreness goes away. Then you start getting all this energy that makes getting through it sooooo much easier. Good luck and keep it up!

I started doing a short warm up including a few unweighted squats before turning on the Shred and that really helped with the soreness.

I do a very short (10 minutes) yoga video I have that is just for stretching and relaxation. It helps SO MUCH just to really stretch out the muscles in the afternoon. I'm on day 4 of the 30 Day Shred and while I do get sore, it eases up and doesn't come back after I do the yoga.

Make sure you do the warm up correctly and feel your body heating up. Always stretch afterwards as well.

You need to up your protein intake which will help as well. When you exercise your muscles tear which causes soreness and pain. Protein repairs the damage from working out. What I do is drink a whey protein shake immediately after my workout.

Soreness is a good thing because it means you are working your muscles, but ibuprofen (which is a muscle relaxer) can be used if you are so sore you can't move!

I'm on Day 4 now. Day 2 was miserable, no amount of Motrin could help that situation. Day 3 I was better, but then when I did the shred my muscles were killing me. I haven't done the workout yet today, but I already feel the pain. Getting up and sitting down in chairs is making my muscles ache. I can't even imagine how much it's going to suck to do the shred today.

I'm on day 7, you have to just work through it. There's nothing really motrin can do. If you workout every day, I promise it will get easier. Also, be careful taking pain killers before a workout. Pain can be your signal that something is wrong, it's there for a reason. They should be fine after the workout though.

I'm on day 27 level 3. Level 1 and level 2 felt pain for a few days. Level 3 I feel ab pain for a few hours everyday, then the pain goes away. Drink protien shakes after workout, it helps repair your muscles. Don't give up, I drop 19 inches. Good luck.

I do 30 day shred and after a couple days of the workout your body will get used to using those muscles that were probably dormant before you started the video. It gets so much easier. I feel like falling over during most of the video but when it's over I feel like a million bucks! Keep it up! And I always stretch for a while longer than the video demonstrates, that seems to help :)

Stretching after the workout helps. It gets your muscles attuned to the new you. Hot bath in Epsom salts is also great.
