Being sore is one of those things everyone in the fitness community complains about but secretly loves. Being sore just proves to you that your body is breaking down and rebuilding itself to become even better. While it does suck to be moaning and groaning every time you sit down and stand up, you know you love that feeling. The reason this workout burns so bad is because during some of the exercises you’ll be pausing and holding – which makes your muscles have to work a little extra. So next time you’re craving a workout that will make you have that oddly satisfying sore feeling, give this one a go.
