Your Joints Feel Pounded
If your joints ache after you’ve left the gym, your workout might be totally fine — but you’re probably not warming up the right way (or you’re impatiently skipping the warm up completely). Start with 3-5 minutes of light cardio, like a jog, or do a bodyweight circuit of 3-4 basic moves, aiming for 10-15 reps each, suggests Ballantyne. A few minutes with a foam roller before and after your routine will also get proper blood flow going for a warm-up, says Guanzon.
