Temporary Hoarseness after Vocal exercises without tension?

Hey all, does anyone have any experience getting some hoarseness for 30m-1h after working out chest voice exercises?

I made sure I wasn’t pushing air, and often stop to check for there being
No strain in neck or chest

But I still get this temporary hoarseness maybe towards the end of the session of scales and also for 30m-45m after stopping

Is this a result of working it out?
And something that will come with time like going to the gym soreness for muscles?

    i had it a few times when i switched from vol 1 to vol 2 but accidentally did vol 2 twice in a row because i misunderstood something. i don't think i was oversinging or pushing too hard but i was not ready for the (excessive) workload. i noticed my mistake after a few sessions and then it was fine as soon as i only did one round of vol 2. your case might be different but if i was to generalize my experience, i guess it was too much work for too little muscle. reduce the time spent or skip the highest notes, and slowly work your way up there.

    do you own the course? if so, make sure to register for student's access
