What Type of Workout Makes You the Most Sore?

I was lucky enough to go skiing this weekend and take advantage of all the white stuff that's been falling. The snow was fluffy and deep, which made for great runs and a challenging workout. Being in the cold air and zooming down the mountain felt so exhilarating that I skied for a few hours straight. That night, I started feeling sore even before I went to bed, and when I woke up, my muscles felt like jelly — it was awesome. Skiing always makes me so sore, since I don't get to do it regularly. What about you?

Strength training, for the thing I do regularly. I switch up my routine very often so my body is always guessing and it usually leads to soreness. It's the good, I-worked-hard pain though, not the I-did-something-wrong pain.

Plyometrics feels fun in the moment but I always pay for it later.

Definitely strength training. After a good strength workout, I can feel it in my muscles for a good day or two afterwards.

Definitely strength training. I did day 6 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and my calves and thighs are still a little sore from day 1!

Strength training -- which also includes pilates sessions on the reformer. Yowza!

I learn choreography to Asian pop music--it's tough, but a great (and REALLY fun) workout.

whenever i start something new, that usually makes me sore. but strength training has consistently been a good way to bring on the soreness!

I took a gymnastics class offered at a local gym, something about tumbling, lifting people, deep stretching and high impact made me sore two days after the work out. No matter if I did it every day or once a week. Gymnastics always made me sore, those floor routines only look frilly!

tls I'm the same way ! I can log 100+ miles on the bike and 40+ miles on the run and still get sore after lifting!

Yoga, but that's probably because I just started! I can't believe how sore I feel after doing those innocently looking poses! Other than that I only do swimming(from time to time) and running, strength training DOES seem...scary to me right now!

Definitely strength training. I change my strength routine every month and I know when I start a new one, I will be sore for a few days. I run a lot too but my body is used to that because regardless of distance, the movement is always the same. Even minor tweaks in lifting can use your muscles differently and thus cause the soreness to kick in. I also lift pretty heavy to that probably has something to do with it too.

Apparently strength training. I did calf raises the other day and I'd like currently like to detach the bottoms of my legs. And here I thought I had good muscle tone there anyway from running and biking.
