At times my knees, shoulders and feet will ache and general soreness has become a part of everyday living. I go to a gym so they obviously program for me and I'll occasionally pull double days, mostly consisting of body weight movements and running. Thoughts?
Listen to your body. If it is asking for rest, give it rest.
