I am on Day 2 of my Strength training, and I am super excited!

 I did the slant board exercises and lunges yesterday, and today I started on all the fitball exercises.  I have two questions about those:

1. My wrists started hurting after a few minutes.   Am I doing something wrong?  If it is just part of beginning and getting used to doing them, any suggestions?

2. I noticed after Day 1 that my legs were a little sore, but after today's exercises, I barely felt anything in my core or glutes or hips, all the areas that those exercises work.  Does this mean I am doing them wrong, or maybe using the wrong part of my body to do the movement?  If so, does anyone have any suggestions on working to make sure I am doing them right?

Thank you so much!

My only suggestion would be to make sure your movements are slow and intentional, really focusing on activating those muscles. Soreness does usually subside quickly and may or may not recur.
