Exercise causes the muscles to stretch and contract at a rapid pace. Overdoing it even a little causes the muscles to tire out or wear down a bit which causes the soreness. Well that's in red muscle anyway, in white muscle it's probably due to lactic acid build up from doing too many endurance exercises with muscles that have become accustomed to hair trigger actions.
Because the lactic acid that builds due to the tearing of muscle fibers. Drink lots of water to help your body get rid of the excess lactic acid and there will be less pain.
The main cause is release of lactic acid, lack of oxygen. Other reasons include stretching of muscles which causes minor tear in them it causes the pain.. these torn muscle then join to become bigger. So whenever you exercise your muscles will pain for few days. Regular exercises and drinking lots of water correct breathing can help you reduce the pain.
There are several factors. Your body relies on break-down of nutrients to form energy. Using oxygen is called Aerobic metabolism. This produces enough energy for output. However, with less or not enough oxygen, you switch into anaerobic metabolism, which is not effective. This disminished energy can tire muscle currently being used. Lastly, continued effort on muscle can increase strain which will signal pain as well.
Several reasons - insufficient stretching and warming up can stress the muscles, but as you exercise the build-up of lactic exercise which occurs due to anaerobic (without oxygen) metabolism causes a burning sensation.
