I've taken a few extended breaks (6+ months) from working out over the past 2-3 years. Every time I come back I will always get sore for the first 2-4 weeks, with the level of soreness decreasing as time passes. I recently took about 7 months off and have been working out for 5 months and I'm still always sore. Not just sore, but an intense, interferes with other things, type of sore. The only thing that has changed is instead of doing 3x8 in most lifts, I now do 3x10. It's not a huge deal, but when my chest or legs are so sore that I can't do the proper length/intensity of cardio, it starts to get annoying. Any ideas on why I'm still getting sore? It's not decreasing either, which is the strange part.
