I'm also trying to lift weights every alternate days if possible, targeting two body parts per session. However I've got to admit that I haven't been diligently working on weights missing some sessions at times.
I've been feeling rather stiff in my back as well as at the back of both my knees. Straightening my legs especially over the last weekend was painful yet bearable. I'm thinking that the lack of warming up and stretching before workout could be the cause of the problem.
Over the past 2 days, I've picked up yoga which I do it in the morning before going to work. All the stretching seems to have eliminated the soreness and stiffness from my back and legs. In addition the yoga stretches were pretty intense judging by the amount of sweat I tend to generate each session.
In summary my currently weekly workout consist of the following:
- 5 days a week of Freeletics
- 5 days a week of Yoga
- 3 days a week of Weights (alternating days)
- 1 Free workout day (any exercise from running to weight lifting)
- 1 Rest Day
What about you?
