As we said yesterday, there are good and bad ways to go about lifting weights to achieve muscle strength for more effective exercise and PCOS health.
First of all, get your doctor’s approval for any change to your PCOS fitness program. Then, before you lift weights, it’s advisable to warm up with five or ten minutes of jogging, cycling or any other aerobic exercise. Warming up boosts blood flow to the muscles.
A post-workout cardio stint, like five minutes of brisk walking, can reduce muscle soreness. If you experience the latter, don’t worry because it’s perfectly normal, especially for beginners.
However, the soreness shouldn’t be so bad that you can’t lift weights again 48 hours later. If it still hurts after that period of time, consult your doctor.
