    One note - if your muscle is that sore, don't exert it until it feels better again. Light exercise like a brisk walk, hike, or elliptical is okay. Recovery is an important part to building muscle, so don't cheat yourself of it.

    And if it happens again - please, see a doctor. There could be something bigger going on. I'd hate to see something happen to you.
    B-but it's at a class at school... they do not allow breaks... This is what I do not understand, if you're supposed to allow yourself to recover, how are you supposed to allow yourself if you have to exercise every Monday-Friday no matter what. They tell us one thing and make us do another.

    It just seemed weird that the right was manageably sore for a day and the other was not.

    I am not sore at all today.

    I also do not understand why exercises that are supposed to work my arms make my legs shake and give out. This is probably why it didn't work yesterday.

    But think, you could fix the tape measure 3 weeks down the road and brag about your awesome improvements!!

It's hard to plan more specific goals until I find the training routine that I'm going to follow, I need something more than just doing exercise when I feel like it, I need session times or it won't happen. So step one is checking out the two martial arts places I've seen.
    That does sound like it has fun potential! Why did you quit your gym, if I may ask?

    Do they force you to do the same exercises everyday?

    There are two options I'm aware of - if any of this is off someone please correct me:
    1. If it's the same circuit everyday, only mildly push yourself. Go for repetitions instead of pushing yourself with a higher weight. That'll reduce soreness and still help you burn calories and tone up a bit.

    2. If you have some freedom on what exercises you do, break it into muscle groups. As one example: Legs one day, chest and triceps the next, and back and Biceps to finish. Do a moderate ab exercise everyday. That'll give certain muscle groups a few days off to rest, even as you hit the gym everyday.

    Krav Maga is certainly a fascinating combat art. So have fun and good luck on that.

    It's only about the same circuit, except the days that we walk.

    days that we walk I have to push myself as much as I can just to keep up at minimum.

    Sure hope so! And nope, don't mind but the answer is long, let's just say I had a complaint with the gym management and their way of dealing with it was unsatisfactory and disappointing to me.

    What kind of exercise class has you do the exact same exercises every day? Bah! At the very least, I hope they alter the circuit after a few weeks.

    As for the walking, that'll likely get easier as you do it more.

    Ran 4 miles last night - hardly broke a sweat. Will have to increase my pace; change my resistance/terrain to ensure continuity.

    Have you been practicing swimming at all? To me, that is the single most draining cardio I've ever done in my life. Even when I could run 4 miles without really stressing my breathing (sigh, a long time ago), swimming would kill me pretty quickly.

    How do you train for the swimming portion of a triathlon?

    +1. Swimming works EVERYTHING. I was on the swim team in high school and was a lifeguard, and I think it's definitely the best exercise I've ever done. If I were close to a pool, I'd be adding that to my exercise now.
