I get pain immadiately when i try to work out

I am very skinny and pretty weak so i've tried to work out multiple times because I want butt and abs + I want stronger arms. I've also got overpronation so I get shin splints from pretty much nothing if i'm not careful so i've been to the physical therapist a ton of times and gotten workout programmes. Only problem is my arms hurt right after i've lifted even very light weights or done pushups, it feels like cramping. And my thighs and shins hurt all the time in periods when I do lunges, my shins are really sore now. It makes it really hard to stick with exercising. Is it normal? I have arthritis in my family but both my doctor and physical therapist says it's impossible to get that when you're young... Though i've had symptoms. Well is it normal to have so much pain in your body when you've started working out and I guess if I rest until all the pain is gone again it's gonna take a very long time and any progress will be gone again so please help. I had a thing once that I could exercise once a week with a physical therapist but I only went once it was really awkward just exercising by myself with a person staring at me the whole time.

Is It Normal?

  • To me it sounds like how you normally feel when you first start working out. You get Charlie horses and shit and muscle cramps. Thats normal for your first week or 2. Then after that your body will adapt and you will have trouble getting those cramps again. Believe it or not you'll miss it because if you're getting cramps that means you are tearing your muscles down like you're supposed to. It means you're doing it right. Just stick with it and it will go away. Lifting will also help with arthritis.

  • when you start working out your muscles are sore, thats normal. make sure to warm up before you work and go easy on yourself. Your no superman rn, don't over work yourself. If you can only do 10 pushups that day then push it. just try to get 11 the next day, and 12 the day after.

  • Before doing lunges, take the dildo out of your ass.

  • It isn't impossible to get arthritis when you are young. That's bullshit. Children can have arthritis. I'm not sure why they have said that to you.

    • Me neither but they said the same thing to my mom for many years and she has very bad arthritis and its genetic so I assume anyway I might have it and thats why I feel maybe exercising is good too.

  • "Pain is weakness leaving the body."

    Push through dude, eventually you'll come to appreciate the post- workout soreness.
