First a little background. I’m 33 a year old reformed couch potato, and type 2 diabetic.
I have been working out with serious intent for about 3 months. I’m making decent gains and have been able to get off of the diabetes meds. The thing is that for the last four weeks I have been using a total body workout that I want to do three times a week. However I’m having a lot of trouble with DOMS but only in my legs. The soreness forces me to only workout once or twice a week.
Should I reduce intensity, go back to split routine, or will my legs catch up to my upper body at some point if I tough it out? (I could work upper every other day) The thing is I am making visible gains even with the reduced frequency, because I make sure I give it everything I’ve got.
But more frequent exercise means better blood sugar control. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks
