I started back at the gym yesterday, I hadn't been for over a month due to being lazy, I used to go 3 to 4 times a week.

I went on the running machine and also did squats and lunges.

I can't move, honestly I can't even get in my car my legs/bum hurt so badly . I'm not exaggerating, it's even a struggle to sit on the toilet or walk up the stairs.

Is there anything I can do?! Should I also rest until this goes away?

Thanks.

I don't really rest between exercises.

got to the gym and do squats again, seriously it will help.

It seems like the worse thing you can do but it isn't.

Start slowly and build up. If you haven't been to the gym for a while your first session back shouldn't be as intense as your previous one

Do light stretches, make sure you're drinking enough water, eat well, rest A LOT. You'll be fine. I once had this happen to me and I had to walk like a man who got kicked in the balls. It was the most pain I ever felt in my life, but after a few days it went.

This

Only way to get rid of it, is to do it again!

DOMS. Eat lots of protein, walk anyway and stop being a girl about it.
