Aches and Pains 1 of 8

It's extremely hard to stay in good shape all the time, but sometimes we let ourselves slack off and get completely out of shape. The problem is not taking a break from exercise, but in realizing when you need to get back on that treadmill. Are you out of shape after a month? How about after three or four? Check out the signs in the gallery that will help you figure out if you're in shape or not.

One of the classic signs that you're out of shape is if you start feeling a lot more aches and pains than usual. Even though you might not look forward to being sore after working out, being lazy can cause just as much or more pain in the long run. In addition, hitting the gym infrequently will cause more pain because the body must readjust every time. Here are some common pains you can expect if you're out of shape:

  • Back pain
  • Stomach pain
  • Chest pain
