I take it you did pullups? Take it easy a few days and they should be fine. Just make sure you keep stretching them out.

Really, you can say Diane and Fran and its easier that way. Doesnt really matter what it was I guess, my advice is still the same. Besides the questionable programming of coming off a layoff with two straight benchmark workouts, as long as you dont have obvious rhabdo symptoms youll just have to let your arms loosen themselves back up.

Edit: didnt mean to sound harsh, just saw that thats what mainsite had programmed. Still think you should ease into it if youve been off for awhile.

same thing happened to me after I did murph for the first time. took a full week for the soreness to go away, 7 days!

Doesn't anyone stretch or use any mobility techniques before a WOD? It should be routine to help. Foam roll your muscles before and after even if you feel like you don't need it. Also, if it's taking 3-7 days to recover, I would suggest lightening the load or checking your diet. A bad diet doesn't help recovery as you won't be able to get the proper nutrients to the desired place in your body. If things are really bad, i.e. the tendons where I bend my arms get sore after awhile, tack on a few days of Bikram yoga. Bikram really helps in ALL aspects: injury, tennis elbow, tendonitis, cardiovascular, respiratory, etc.
