We have all experienced DOMS. What is it? Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness. It is more than likely that soreness you feel the 24-48 hours after trying a new work out or introducing new exercises into your current work out. Enter Zumba Glutes to get those glute muscles fired, and Zumba Core to incorporate more standing core exercises into class, and yeah...you will definitely feel different in the next 24-48 hours.

The silver lining is that DOMS is a part of  the process of your body adapting to an increase of physical demands. Trust and know that you are building more muscle, gaining stamina, and greater strength as your muscles recover. Gentle stretching through these 24-48 hours will not stop the onset of soreness, but will help you feel better. Staying active at a lower intensity can alleviate some of the discomfort also.

It is good practice to learn how our bodies and minds respond to exercise and why. Read more about DOMS here! Good info...
