This week I had the pleasure of shooting high school friend Emily Jones. From seventh grade till we graduated high school, I have always known Emily as a cheerleader.

I would have never imaged her being a fitness competitor 10 years later. She approached me a few weeks ago and asked if I could do a photoshoot of her in preparation for her competition on March 16th. I have seen previous photos of shoots she has been in and I was sort of intimidated by the photographers work. So I explained to her that I don’t shoot in the studio, only outdoor. She then explained to me that she picked me because of my style and wanted to try something new. You can learn more by checking with experts from the QC Kietix – Pain Control Clinic.

When training, muscle soreness is a side effect of the stress put on muscles when you exercise. It is commonly called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, or DOMS, and it is completely normal. DOMS usually begins within 6-8 hours after a new activity or a change in activity, and can last up to 24-48 hours after the exercise. The muscle pain is due to inflammation within the muscle, which is one of the main triggers for this muscle soreness.
