So I just recently joined a kickboxing gym and the beginning of class starts with 5 mins of jump roping. After my first day, I could barely extend my leg and walk. This week it isn't so bad, but my calf is pretty damn sore. Seems like I need two days rest in between classes.

Am I doing something wrong or is it because I've never done this stuff? This is really frustrating dealing with the pain hehe. I sit here telling myself that after a month or two, i should develop the muscles to deal with i can go in 4 days a week.

Anyone else had this problem when they first began training?
Sounds standard. Your body is not use to bouncing around on the balls of your feet (calf muslces are used to point your foot) for extened periods of time.

Keep at it and you'll get over it. Just listen to your body. If you need 2 days of rest, take it.
