DOMS and Water Retention

Kettlebells has resulted in some serious Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) as my newly stressed muscles repair themselves causing inflammation and retention of fluid. With that water retention comes perceived weight gain, but I’ll keep hydrating and doing light stretching to get through it. All should be back on track later this week.

Snow day today, so no gym tonight, but hopefully tomorrow I can get back to it. Yesterday was my official rest day, but since I can still barely walk after KB training, another day of rest won’t hurt at this point.
