MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Fall is here and the club is buzzing with activity. The Breakers Boulevard Band (B3) Series has been a tremendous success, along with all the other activities that have transpired on the Boulevard, which is definitely a vibrant addition to our Club life. Welcome to our new Breakers Manager, Mardy Colling, who hit the ground running and continues to work toward enhancing Member experiences there. See the next page to learn more about her. The winners of the New Member Sponsor Contest will be determined at the Annual Meeting. Special thanks and a good luck wish goes out to all of the sponsors and endorsers of this year’s newest members. New members are the lifeblood of clubs today and PACC is no exception. Recruitment of quality families helps to keep dues increases in check and affords us the opportunity to expand programming and activities that distinguish our Club from its competition. As we all know, Donna Reinhart-Bourgelas, membership director, does a tremendous job of “selling” The Princess Anne, but she needs our help. With full membership participation in this effort, our potential is unlimited. With our 100 year anniversary closing in on us, your Centennial Committee has chosen and the Board has approved an agreement with Legendary Publishing to deliver in 2016, a centennial book chronicling your Club’s rich history. Work has already begun and members of all ages will be engaged in helping tell The Princess Anne story. If you have any club-related memorabilia to share, please take it to Donna in the administrative suites. As highlighted in this newsletter, we encourage you to make early reservations for upcoming events like the Oyster Roast, Thanksgiving Brunch and Traditional Christmas. Speaking of the Holidays, I encourage you to gear up for a successful Holiday shopping season by supporting our golf and tennis pro-shops. Gift certificates are also available for dining, massage and personal training. Finally, we encourage you to reach out to Lori Ciccone, your catering director, for any Holiday events that you would like to host at The Princess Anne. At press-time there were still a few dates available. As I reflect on my first year as President of PACC, I am grateful for the dedicated team of professionals who assist our members on a daily basis. I also wish to thank our member volunteers who serve thoughtfully and faithfully on the committees that help govern the Club. Committeegenerated recommendations to your Board ensure that the PACC will continually evolve and meet the ever-changing needs of our members. By now, the 2013-2014 Annual Report should be in-hand and I encourage all members to review this document in order to fully appreciate all that our committees accomplished last year. A special thank you is sent to our outgoing Board Members who have completed their three-year terms and freely offered their time, passion and sage counsel during their tenure. It has been an honor to serve with Tom Edwards, Pat Shuler, Jon Thornton, and John Wilson. Best wishes,

Princess Anne Living - November/December 2014

Welcome

Mardy Colling Breakers Restaurant Manager Already well-known to many members through her church, Galilee, and her beloved north-end neighborhood, we are happy to formally introduce Mardy Colling. Mardy is a Hokie through and through, having earned her business and marketing degree from Virginia Tech. After getting an opportunity to market a local video and film company, she fell madly in love with the film camera. From there she ventured out to become a freelance camerawoman and started filming for National Geographic and the Discovery Channel. She later moved on in the film industry to commercials, television series, and feature films. While shooting a commercial in Japan, Mardy met her husband Kevin, a Navy pilot, and they shortly thereafter embarked on a marriage and careers that spanned the world. Kevin unfortunately was involved in a Blue Angel accident the year he made team 2000 and Mardy then chose to remain in Virginia Beach to be close to family and friends. She decided to retire from the film industry and purchased a restaurant nearby by the name of G. F. Keagans. After five years she renamed the restaurant The Blue Turtle and continued the business for almost eight years. Finally Mardy decided to sell her restaurant and enjoy the life that her backyard provides. She lives at the oceanfront and enjoys endless days in and around the water. She is also an avid golfer and tennis player and loves to talk both! Mardy hopes to create a fun casual atmosphere at Breakers, to which members will be continually drawn. She also welcomes and encourages suggestions in order to meet and exceed expectations of Breakers and the Boulevard.

Princess Anne Living - November/December 2014


TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Andy Hinkle Head Tennis Professional Andy Hinkle is proud to have been a Princess Anne Team member for over 22 years. The friendly family atmosphere that is created by both the Club members and team members is what first attracted Andy to The Princess Anne Country Club and has kept him happily employed for so long. His typical day begins at 6:30 a.m. and can run as late as 9:00 p.m. This is time to which Andy looks forward and would not trade for any other job. Andy considers himself truly fortunate to enjoy a career teaching a sport that has significantly enriched his life. The fact that he has been able to work with people that he considers to be good friends is an added bonus. Unlike many tennis teaching professionals, Andy did not start playing the game as a young child. He first picked up a racquet as a sophomore playing for Norfolk Catholic High School. It was love at first hit! Andy attended The University of Virginia, where he met his wife of 20 years, Irma. He has a sister (and

brother in law) who attended Virginia Tech, which makes for rather spirited family gatherings. It was at UVA that he had his first experience teaching tennis. Andy was hired by Mary Hotchkiss Leavell to work with kids in an after school tennis program. Mary Leavell is a former out-of-town member of the PACC. Mary was also a top collegiate and state player and was a great mentor. Upon graduating in 1992, Andy was hired by PACC Head professional Mike Miller, who encouraged and supported Andy’s professional development. And the rest, as they say, is history! Andy proudly considers himself a true “geek” about many things. Star Wars, British alternative music from the 1980s and table tennis to name a few. Recently, the game of “Pickle Ball” has been occupying his spare time. Andy enjoys learning about things as much as he enjoys teaching. In fact, over the years, Andy has learned as much from his students as hopefully they have from him. He hopes to do so for many more years to come.

Celebrating PACC – The First 100 Years Proudly Announcing the Commissioning of an All-Star Team Work has officially begun on the creation of a collectible hard-cover book chronically the first 100 years of The Princess Anne Country Club, to be released in the spring of 2016. The book will be published by Legendary Publishing Group, LLC, an esteemed and prestigious company committed to telling the story of all aspects of PACC life and its role in the region. Larry Hasak will be the art director and designer of the project. His company has produced a multitude of publications including prominent golf magazines and private club centennial books. One of Legendary’s most recent publications is The Story of Golf at The Country Club, winner of the USGA’s 2009 Herbert Warren Wind Award for golf book of the year. To be released in December 2014 is The History of the Yale Club of New York City. World renowned photographer, L.C. Lambrecht, was on-property for the first time in October, taking a multitude of golf course shots. He has photographed more than 400 golf courses world-wide. Members who are passionate about golf have probably seen Lambrecht’s work in books, magazines, or Princess Anne Living - November/December 2014

calendars. Because photography tends to be an anonymous art, his images may have been examined and appreciated without knowing the photographer’s name. Last but not least is writer, John Steinbreder, a nationallyknown and award-winning journalist who is the author of 18 books including The History of the Yale Club. A senior writer for Global Golf Post, Steinbreder also contributes to Masters. com and previously worked as a writer/ reporter for Fortune magazine and Sports Illustrated. He also produces articles for several prominent periodicals. Members are encouraged to share their PACC-related memorabilia in order for a comprehensive story to be assembled, reflecting The Princess Anne’s proud history, traditions, and its essence to the community. Donna Bourgelas will oversee the accumulation of treasures as we anxiously anticipate a magnificent and memorable volume, of which all members will be proud.

Dear Rules Guru, I have been accused of “wanting to be OUT when I am IN” and “wanting to be IN when I am OUT. There may be some truth to this, and it does bring to mind some rules questions concerning what is IN and what is OUT You see, when the ball is on the edge, there are times when I am not sure of its status. Please clarify these situations. Signed, “Edgie”

1. Out of Bounds COURSE

Answer 1. Out of Bounds: The Rules state that a ball is “out of bounds” when ALL of it lies out of bounds. In your picture a part of the ball is in bounds so the ball is in bounds.

Things to know about the boundary: a. When the boundary is defined by stakes or a fence, the boundary is the course side of the stake or fence post at ground level. b. The boundary line extends vertically up and down. This means a ball only has to overhang the boundary to be considered “in bounds,” it does not have to touch the ground. c. A player may stand out-of-bounds to play a ball that is in bounds.

26

Princess Anne Living - November/December 2014


THE GOLDEN RULES 2. Bunkers At times it is actually hard to determine if a ball is really in a bunker, especially if the bunker is bordered by some irregular grasses. In this picture it appears that most of the ball is actually touching the sand, even though part of it is touching the grass. Is this IN or OUT? In this picture the ball looks to be in the bunker. But on the closer look, it seems to be sitting on the grass not the sand. Is it IN or OUT?

Touching sand On the grass

Answer

The Rules state that a ball is in a bunker when any part of it lies in or touches a bunker. The definition goes on to state that grass-covered ground bordering or within a bunker is not a part of the bunker. In your picture, the ball that is partially in the grass, but touching the sand in the bunker, is considered to be in the bunker. The ball that is lying on the grass is not in the bunker even though the grass is growing in the bunker. Unlike a boundary line, the margin of the bunker extends down but NOT up. This means a ball overhanging the edge of the bunker, but not touching the sand, is not in the bunker.

4. Water Hazard If a ball is partially on a hazard line, it is considered IN or OUT?

In this picture, the ball is in the tree and overhangs the hazard line. Is this ball IN or OUT?

In this picture, part of the ball touches the hazard line while part remains on the course. Is it IN or OUT?

COURSE

Overhanging hazard Touching the course and hazard

Princess Anne Living - November/December 2014

Answer on next page 27


FROM THE LINKS 4. Water Hazard Answer (continued from previous page) The Rules state that a ball is in a water hazard when it lies in or any part touches the water hazard. In your first picture, the ball is touching the water hazard so it is considered to be in the water hazard. In the second picture, the ball in the bush is overhanging the water hazard, so it is also in the hazard. Things to know about water hazards: a. When there are both stakes and lines, the lines define the margin of the hazard. b. The line itself is in the hazard. This is why the first ball is in the hazard. c. Like a boundary and unlike a bunker, the margin of a water hazard extends vertically up and down. This is why the ball in the bush is in the hazard even though it is not touching the ground in the hazard. If any part of the ball overhangs the line, the ball is in the hazard.

5. On the Putting Green Sometimes the ball comes to rest on the putting green, but part of it may still be on the fringe. If it is partially on the green, is it considered on the green? In this picture only part of the ball lies on the green. Is it IN or OUT?

Answer The Rules state that a ball is on the putting green when any part of the ball touches the putting green. In the picture, part of the ball is touching the green so the ball is considered to be on the green; it can be lifted and cleaned. A ball overhanging the edge of the green but not actually touching the surface is NOT on the putting green. I hope this clears up your confusion, Edgie. If you need more information, complete details about all of these questions can be found in the “DEFINITIONS” section of The Rules of Golf.

Drive for Show, Putt for Dough by Matt Liebler, PGA

As a PGA Professional and Golf Instructor, I often see many golfers focusing the majority of their practice time on the driving range. They are always searching for that one thing that will give them the edge over their friend in their Saturday morning game. After their warm-up session, they pack up their clubs, put them in the car, and head on their merry way. They forgot something important putting practice. Putting is 45-50% of the strokes we make in golf and too often overlooked. Drive for show, putt for dough. You have likely heard that expression before, and you probably understand just how true it is. For most golfers, it is more fun to blast a long drive off the tee; however, the putting green is where the real action is. Those who can roll the ball consistently into the hole are the players who will find themselves with the lowest score at the end of the day. While putting tips are a dime a dozen, the following nine points are ones that you take count on to really make a difference on the greens.

1. Speed

6. Two Putt from Long Distance

Speed is more important than line for good putting. Spend more time thinking about the speed of the putt than you do the line. This will certainly leave you closer to the hole more often, and give your putts a better chance to go in. Once you have the speed figured out, you can analyze the break and hit the perfect putt.

When faced with a long putt, your sole goal should be to two putt the green and move on to the next hole. Too many golfers try to make every putt they look at, and three putts are the inevitable result. If you have a putt of 30 feet or more, focus on getting the ball to stop within a couple of feet so you can tap it in and move on. If the putt happens to fall in, it will be a bonus. The best way to get the ball close is to focus on the speed of the putt and make sure you keep your eyes down through the stroke (no peeking)!

2. Grip Pressure If you squeeze the putter too tightly, you will lose all feel and probably have a difficult time controlling the speed. Rule of thumb - you should be holding the putter no tighter than is absolutely necessary to keep control of it through the stroke. Practice before your round by seeing how lightly you can hold the putter and still control the ball. You might be surprised just how little grip pressure is needed to make a great stroke.

3. Keep Your Eyes Still It is tempting to follow the movement of your putter head with your eyes, but that will only cause you to get off line. For help staying focused, try drawing a dot on your golf ball and staring at it through the entire stroke. The dot will keep your visual focus, and you can be sure that your head is remaining still as long as you look at the dot.

4. Play More Break It seems that average golfers miss all of their putts on the low side of the hole. Most putts are not played with enough break, so they fall below the hole before they get there and have no chance of going in. When in doubt, play more break and hit the putt slower to give it a chance to fall it. If it still misses, the ball should stop near the hole and leave you with an easy tap in for your next putt.

5. Keep Your Hands In Front of the Ball To get the ball rolling quickly on the green (instead of skidding), make sure your hands are in front of the ball at address and remain that way at impact. When you keep the shaft in that forwardleaning position, it will encourage the ball to start rolling right away, and therefore keep it online as well. Thinking about using your left hand (for a RH golfer) to pull the putter through the ball is a good way to achieve this tip successfully. Princess Anne Living - November/December 2014

7. Watch Other’s Putts Closely If you are playing the round with other golfers, don’t go to sleep or get distracted while they are putting. You can learn a lot from the roll of the ball on other player’s putts, so keep your focus and use that information to your advantage. Even if you are putting from a different line, watch how the ball moves around the hole and factor that read into your own putt.

8. Keep Lower Body Still One of the easiest ways to get your putts offline is to let your knees move during the stroke. If you sway at all side-to-side while you putt, the putter head will turn and the putt can miss. While the turning motion might be very subtle, it is enough to mean the difference between a missed putt and a made one. Keep your focus on holding your knees steady while you roll the ball and it will be online more times than not.

9. Practice Lastly and most importantly, practice!! As mentioned before, putting is the most neglected part of the game in terms of practicing. The more you practice, the better you will be! Putting is a deceptively hard part of the game of golf. In order to be successful on the greens, you need to have a good game plan and spend sufficient time on the practice green. Take these simple tips with you for your next practice session and start building the confidence to be a great putter every time you hit the links.

FROM THE COURTS By the time you receive this newsletter, we will be ready for winter mode with the bubble back up and Thanksgiving just around the corner. What a great summer it was, albeit too short. The weather was mostly perfect for enjoying our new Boulevard area and hopefully this enjoyment can continue throughout the fall and early winter as we cozy up around the fire pits. There are quite a few events that have transpired since the last newsletter about which to report, along with upcoming events for the next couple of months.

2014 SPINDLE CUP LADIES TENNIS TEAM MAKES IT A 3-PEAT What a thrilling weekend for our ladies who represented us at Norfolk Yacht for the 18th installment of Spindle Cup on September 13th & 14th. Spindle Cup is a singles and doubles competition for ladies rated 4.0 and between four clubs, PACC, Norfolk Yacht, Country Club of VA and Farmington. PACC unfortunately lost this tournament for 15 consecutive years, until we won it for the first time two years ago. Last year, we won again, and this year our team celebrated the 3-peat! Our gals simply dominated the competition winning 14 out of the 16 total matches. The format is 4 singles and 4 doubles matches which are drawn out of a hat to see who plays who. The winners play each other the next day as well as the non-winners. On both days we swept the singles

matches dropping only one set. Debby Levi lead the charge at the #1 spot, Leslie Cutchins played in the #2 spot with Mariah Standing behind her in the #3 spot and Vinita Folck at #4. Yes, this is somewhat of an All-Star lineup that none of the other clubs had an answer for. They didn’t get much of a reprieve in the doubles either with Beth Foster and Donna Salasky heading up our lineup at #1, Debby Levi and Diane Stein at #2, Meridith Brady and Mariah Standing at #3 and Molly Hobbs and Vinita Folck at #4. Congratulations to our ladies for winning this event three years in a row! They start training for it in February, so it’s great to see all their hard work and passion paying off. Well done! You make us so proud!

FROM THE COURTS OUR NIGHT WITH MATS WILANDER

(l to r) Lickle, Fraser, Hinkle, Wilander

Andy and John came close to winning on October 9th against some tough competition. John was serving for it all at 6-5 in the tie breaker and hit his first serve out wide to Mats’ backhand. Mats returned it at John’s feet and as he approached the net, John half-volleyed it crosscourt. Then Mats’ partner crossed in front of it at the net and picked it off for the win! Andy and John ended up losing 8-6, but what an awesome experience! They played great and it was a thrill being across the net from the seven time Grand Slam winner and former #1, Mats Wilander. It was also, very intimidating to see those familiar, silky strokes winding up to send a ball over the net! Mats and his partner, Cameron Lickle, were such class acts in how they interacted with Andy and John and the crowd, staying behind afterwards to meet and greet everyone and pose for pictures. Here’s the one that was taken at the end. Thanks to those who came out in support of Andy and John. They really appreciated it and hope they made everyone proud!

FROM THE COURTS John’s Tip of the Month –

Varying Your Serve

A I know what you’re thinking, “We’ve heard this before, vary your speed, spin and location on your serve, right?” Yes, but have you ever thought about changing the position on the court from which you serve? Imagine how much harder it would be for a batter to hit the ball if a baseball pitcher could throw from different mounds across the field. Similarly, tennis players are not required to serve from a fixed position on the court, yet very few of us take advantage of that fact. We all know that for singles you serve from the hash mark, we’ll call that position “A.” For doubles, most of us serve from the halfway mark between the hash and the singles sideline, we’ll call that position “B.” Some players who have a nice wide serve prefer to stand closer to the singles sideline, we’ll call that position “C”. Imagine how, by varying your position on the court, you are exponentially adding different serve angles for your opponent to volley. There are other factors to consider too in that if you are playing doubles and you’re right-handed with a big forehand, you would serve mostly from position “A” on the deuce side and “C” on the ad side in order to increase your chances of being able to hit the next ball on your forehand. If your opponent is also right-handed and has a weak backhand, you’ll have a better chance of getting the serve angle into it from position “A” on the deuce and “C” on the ad. If your opponent stands way out in the alley to protect that backhand on the ad side, then serve from position “A” and ace ‘em down the “T”!

FROM THE COURTS Junior News There is a new junior USTA tournament this year that will be held Thanksgiving weekend, November 28th-30th. This tournament, formally known as the PAJTL (Peninsula Area Junior Tennis League) Thanksgiving Classic, has been an institution in this area for over 30 years with most of it taking place at Centre Court Racquet Club in Newport News. Many of the kids from our program have participated in this tournament over the years, so when the director decided to retire last year, John asked the USTA if PACC could host it and they said, “Yes!” This is a great opportunity for our kids to play in a big tournament right here at home that usually brings in competitors from all over the region. Hopefully there will be a big draw for our debut as hosts. Of course, we still held our famous “Select Imports Open” the first weekend in October which drew over a hundred participants ages 8-18. Some of our kids faired really well against some stiff competition from all over. Here are some of the results:

LIFESTYLES & FITNESS

5 Types of Muscle Soreness In this issue, learn what’s normal and what’s not when it comes to muscle soreness, and how to tell the difference between normal soreness and pain that requires time off from the gym (or even a doctor’s visit).

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

Long-Term Muscle Soreness

Called DOMS for short, this is the soreness you’re probably most familiar with. It’s what you feel when you get out of bed the next morning after a tough workout. This soreness begins 24 to 48 hours after your workout and actually indicates a natural adaptive process that the body uses after an intense exercise session. When you do a new or particularly challenging workout, your muscle fibers might tear on a microscopic level. It takes time for your body to repair that muscle, which is why you may feel this type of lingering soreness for up to 72 hours after that workout. Sometimes, you may even feel more sore on the second or third day after your workout than you did on the first. The good news? Once you get through this bout of soreness, that same activity shouldn’t make you that sore (or sore at all) because your muscles will have gotten stronger and will be better able to handle that particular challenge.

Sometimes you might be sore for longer than 72 hours after a workout. If you are, this probably means that you really pushed yourself, did a completely new activity, or haven’t exercised in a long time. This muscular soreness feels much like DOMS, just more severe, and indicates that your body needs additional time to repair those muscles.

How to prevent it: Stretching is great for a myriad of reasons, and you should continue to stretch and properly cool down, which is also believed to help prevent DOMS. But when it comes to avoiding DOMS entirely, your best bet is to progress slowly and steadily into your exercise program so that your muscles are gradually challenged and can build over time. How to treat it: There are differing opinions and research on this topic, but a number of things may give you some relief from those post-workout muscle aches including massage, icing, gentle stretching, an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory (always consult your doctor), and yoga. Unfortunately, nothing has concretely been proven to reduce how long the soreness lasts, but try a few of those things to get some relief. What not to do: Don’t be a couch potato! Sure, your body needs rest, but performing active recovery, such as walking or yoga, is better than just sitting on your duff. Active recovery is beneficial after a hard workout—just a little bit of physical activity will help increase circulation which, in turn, helps speed muscle recovery. Just be sure to keep it low-impact, low-intensity and pretty short—no longer than 30 minutes are needed to get the results.

44

How to prevent it: Like DOMS, prevention comes by slowly easing into your workout frequency, intensity and duration. How to treat it: Use the same treatment options as general DOMS, and engage in easy active recovery such as walking, light swimming or yoga. If the soreness lasts more than five days, consult your physician. What not to do: Do not do a hard workout or skimp on sleep. Give your body ample time to repair itself with active recovery, and plenty of good sleep to recharge those batteries!

Muscle Cramps At one time or another, you’ve probably experienced a muscle cramp in your calf, foot or hamstring. Muscle cramps are basically sudden, involuntary contractions or spasms. They most commonly occur after exercise or at night and can last from a few seconds to several minutes. Most muscle cramps have causes like straining or overusing a muscle, dehydration, a lack of minerals in your diet, a depletion of minerals in your body, or low blood flow to your working muscles. How to prevent it: Eating a healthy, nutritious diet and taking a multivitamin can help, as can making sure you’re drinking enough water. Regular stretching and not overdoing it in your workouts will help prevent muscle cramps as well. Replacing lost electrolytes during prolonged (greater than 90 minutes) workout sessions is also helpful. How to treat it: Cramps can be very painful, but stretching or gently massaging the muscle can relieve the pain. If you’re in the middle of a workout and a cramp comes on, stop if necessary until it subsides; just be sure to monitor how you’re feeling overall as suddenly stopping during exercise can cause lightheadedness or fainting. What not to do: When your muscle is cramping, the worst thing you can do is flex it. Flexing that muscle only increases the strength of the cramp and causes you more pain. Instead, elongate the muscle to stretch it out. For example, when you get a cramp in your calf, your instinct may be to point your toes but instead, just pull the toes of your foot up, giving the calf muscle a nice stretch.

LIFESTYLES & FITNESS Burning Sensations in Muscles When people say “no pain, no gain” in the gym, the pain they’re talking about is actually the burn you feel in your muscles when you really push into and past fatigue. (As you’ve already learned, real pain is no gain to anyone.) This burn is an unpleasant—but normal—sign that you are working. See, when our muscles use energy, they release hydrogen ions or protons. When doing heavy or prolonged exercise, the protons in your muscles actually accumulate faster than your body can release them, making your muscles burn. This burn is a sign that you’ve reached muscular fatigue or “overload,” which is a necessity if you hope to build stronger muscles.

Unexplained Aches Ever have a great workout and then the next day you’re sore in an area that you didn’t really work? Or perhaps you are in the middle of a workout and are noticing pain or burning in muscles that shouldn’t be feeling the particular exercise, such as your lower back aching while doing an abs exercise. This may be a sign of improper form when lifting weights or performing an exercise. Unexplained aches in your back and neck, or general joint pain, can be signs that you have overstressed your joints or exercised in poor form, causing your body to overcompensate and recruit other muscles to help do the work. How to prevent it: Always make sure that you’re exercising with perfect form. If you can’t perform an exercise with proper form, it’s a sign that you either need to decrease your weight or modify the exercise.

How to prevent it: You can prevent this by working out at a lower-intensity, although every few days it’s good to “feel the burn” because you know that you’re really working those muscles in a way that will help them get stronger! How to treat it: Stopping “the burn” is as simple as stopping the exercise you’re doing. Rest a minute or two and try again if you feel up to it. The feeling should subside in a matter of seconds or minutes, although you may experience DOMS in the following days as a result of your hard work. Remember to” EXERT, NOT HURT” What not to do: Don’t feel like you have to feel the burn every time to have a good workout. The best exercise plan is one that switches high-intensity workouts with easier, lower-intensity workouts to prevent over-training. Keep workouts fresh and give the body adequate rest.

How to treat it: If you generally feel just sore, treat the same as you would DOMS, but pay special attention to where you’re sore to determine the cause of it—you can then avoid it the next time you hit the gym. Joint pain can indicate a more serious injury, so don’t use the affected joint in any way that causes it pain. Also, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out injury before exercising again. What not to do: Do not work the area that is sore—especially if you have back, spine or neck aches. Be cautious of any activity that increases the soreness and consider RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) for relief.
