It seems like every time I work out my lower body I have incredible soreness for days afterwords, but I've been doing this for months and months with no improvement in recovery times.

Example: I did a 6 move kettlebell circuit on monday that really kicked butt. Monday I was tired but fine, but for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, I've had extreme soreness (minor cramping) in my hamstrings, inner thighs, and glutes.

It seems like I should get to a point where I'm not uber sore every week. This soreness really detracts from swing dancing and racquetball, so I'm looking for possible solutions.

Is this normal or am I missing something? I can't imagine doing crossfit 4 days a week if I always felt like this.


P.S. I follow a pretty strict primal diet, plenty of fat and protein, under or around 100 carbs. I stretch after workouts, and I do a lot of slow movement throughout the rest of the week.

Thanks!
