I'm really sore after class, is this normal?

Especially if you've done one of the killer strength classes, you may experience what is called delayed onset muscle soreness. Physical exertion (e.g. training or exercise) can cause microtrauma (small tears) to the muscle fibres (the pain you may experience). Soon after, your muscle will adapt to prevent damage, hence the soreness if the exercise is repeated. This is a natural process of muscle building.

If you do not experience improvement from your pain in seven days, we recommend you consult a physician.

How do I treat this "delayed onset muscle soreness" after class?

We are not medical professionals and do not claim to be. If you are worried, we recommend you consult a physician.

Generally speaking, the muscle soreness you experience will last from 24-72 hours after class, and should subside and disappear after seven days. You can reduce the discomfort with:

  • RICE treatment of the affected area (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
  • Low-intensity activities
  • Gentle stretching
  • Massage or sauna

If you do not experience improvement from your pain in seven days, we recommend you consult a physician.

Should I train outside of classes?

Absolutely. The more you train, the more you will improve.

If you only train once a week with Urban, it will take longer for you to improve and learn new skills. If you combine Urban with any other exercise (or come to more classes!), you will start to learn and see improvement faster.
