I'm struggling with exercise lately. Not just because I've been inactive due to lockdown... I've noticed it the past year or so. I eat fairly well, have been into fitness for a LOOONG time and had been completing Beachbody programmes no problem.
Lately, I find that I start a new programme eager to get going, only to get bad DOMS the next day to the point I can just about walk. Sometimes, I even come down with a cold. I stretch, get my protein etc etc, just not sure why this is only starting to happen now. I worry, because I want to see results but the after-effects of a workout are really starting to put me off.
Anyone suffer the same, and have found an effective but gentle programme? I know this probably all sounds so vague (trying to get it all into words while four kids run riot 😣😂). I'm just so fed up suffering with discomfort after exercise, when it used to make me feel really good.
I'll be 40 at the end of the year. A few years back I felt so healthy, and feel it's starting to slip away...
