What makes muscles sore when you start working out?


Answer by  Cecilia (2828)

There are two things that cause soreness. The first is a buildup of lactic acid. This is one of the reasons you need to cool down and stretch after exercise. The second is the actual muscle cells tearing and then the repair. This is what increases size.
