Forearms Sore for 4 to 5 Days

Last Thurs. I did weight training for primarily hypertrophy and secondarily for muscular endurance. On that day, I only had time to do 3 sets of 24 reps on barbell lunges, 3 sets 12-14 reps of bent-legged barbell good mornings, and 3 sets of 12 reps of pullovers (with a 50 lbs. dumbbell pull up to and not pass my chest. The next day (Friday), I went to my 45-minute martial arts class in the evening. The next afternoon (Saturday), I went to my martial arts class again. The next evening (Sunday), I did 2 sets of 60 crunches before doing a 30-minute run on a treadmill.

The following day (monday) or yesterday, I had a complete day of rest. So far today, I have done no exercise, although I plan to go to my martial class again later today. Nevertheless, I don’t understand why my forearm muscles are taking that long to recover. I mean they are small muscles and experts like Kurz says that small muscles like the forearms muscles should take 24 hours or less to recover. Also on Sunday, I used a foam roll to massage all my muscles and fibrous connective tissues.

My workouts on those above mentioned days felt fine, I have always been eating a healthy, balanced diet with enough protein, I take a multivitamin pill everyday, and I get a good amount of sleep every night. So, why is this happening?

I don’t even see where you worked your forearms…

Despite what you read in a book not all small muscles magically heal in 24 hours.

Furthermore you are counting days since you lifted but not taking into account that you are going to martial arts practice and re-traumatizing damaged muscle fibers.

Spend much time operating basic hand tools or performing manual labor?

Didnt think so.

Stop fapping so much bro
