Wonder if this could just have more do with Griffin being inactive for a while than it does with the effects of long-term damage on his body.

I am the exact same way. I notice when I start getting lazy and not going to the gym as often because my body starts to ache. Certain muscles start hurting like my back and neck. I hope Griff feels better soon and can find some natural relief to his pain.

I've always wondered whether that was a good thing or a bad thing. Heh. At least now I know I'm not the only one.

how old are you guys? I have never experienced this, quite the opposite actually.

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Im not quiet sure the specifics of what you guys are talking about but there is this that i know about.

Quote:
Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), also called muscle fever, is the pain and stiffness felt in muscles several hours to days after unaccustomed or strenuous exercise.

The soreness is felt most strongly 24 to 72 hours after the exercise.[1] It is thought to be caused by eccentric (lengthening) exercise, which causes microtrauma to the muscle fibers. After such exercise, the muscle adapts rapidly to prevent muscle damage, and thereby soreness, if the exercise is repeated.[2]

Delayed onset muscle soreness is one symptom of exercise-induced muscle damage. The other is acute muscle soreness, which appears during and immediately after exercise.

Also it might simply be your muscles healing close to completely so it feels like "aches" instead of when you work out constantly you dont notice this as much because your mind focuses on the muscles healing that you worked out the day before which is a much more noticeable pain.

Forrest Griffin: "I could dunk since i was 14 but I couldn’t touch the rim ye...

Oh sh!t maybe I should see a doc then! And sideways I am accustomed to the soreness of a strenuous workout. I am talking about after lifting on a schedule of 4-5x per week, and suddenly take 7-10 days off, I get achey from doing semi-strenuous activity. I work in the manufacturing industry so that is where I notice it, personally.

To DSMJRV - I'm 24.

Sounds kinda weird to me. Psychosomatic? hmm IDK. Can't say it happens to me, and I've been lifting etc. for more than a decade now. (I'm in my 40s)

Big price to pay to become Champ. Not many of us can do it.
