Soo when you work out on a body part, how long is there supposed to be pain? Like I done chest and triceps 2 days ago, same day there was not much/no pain. My triceps were just dead. Next day they both started hurting when I move and stuff, today the pain around the chest muscles is just annoying, so I done legs and abs today.

it depends on how often you workout or if it is your first time. Usually if its your first time it'll hurt for a few days (less than a week). If you work out frequently it should hurt one to three days or not at all. The duration depends on the muscle group as well. Some hurt for longer than others. Just make sure you don't overwork your muscles. Too intense a workout may have adverse effects.

Ahh I see. It was my first time working out on my chest. Triceps weren't exactly in the best condition. I do like to push my self.
Thanks (:

Found out I can make my right titty (left a lil bit) come up and down like "The Rock". It's not very noticeable hah.

Tufts do 3 workouts legs day. Back and chest day. Delts and arms day. Superset to get a quick pump. Between weights days do cardio days like jiujitsu or muay. thai. And if your thinking of running just do spirits to burn body fat long distance will burn your hard earned muscle. This is a true story as I look amazing.I am also very humble.

Feel the burn! Ooooorah!

 

... having said that if it is still sore a week later u will need to lay off that muscle as you may have injured yourself.

 

If your trying to gain mass you need to be overloading, otherwise you will just tone what you already have. But there is fine line between pushing yourself and hurting yourself.

 

I injured my rotator cuff a while back and I had to stay out of the gym for almost a month to recover :(

^Not tryna gain mass. Also that suckss.

Four days and it's still burning. I just remembered the day before I done 15x4 pushups then done chest and triceps the next day. Not a smart move.

Will keep what you guys said in mind. Just noticed I needa do some cardio stuff. Forgot about it as my gym buddy isn't doing cardio.

What do you guys recommend for cardio other than treadmill (because asthma)?

@Subtime
I'm not sure my gym has those. Only boxing classes(?).
Still finding my way around the gym, learning new stuff :D

Same busted my rotator mma training took half this year to start benching properly again. I'd lift heavy around the 6-8 Rep range for mass.hulk smash. Make sure you stack your protein shakes with 5gms is creatine monohydrate and use 1mr if you want a good pre workout to get amped.

swimming or jogging are good cardio exercises, just make sure you have your inahler with you. Personally I like to run outdoors since new zealand has great environment to run in.

 

i used to hit the gym 5 times a week with a solid workout plan mainly to gain mass with a secondary goal to cut. But as I am now working in wellington for the summer I don't have access to a gym (pretty much living out in the middle of nowhere). Currently I am doing different variations of pushups every other day; e.g standard, explosive, decline, etc. mainly to tone as it's hard to gain mass this way. I am planning to start running again soon and throw in some ab and leg days.

btw guys bodybuilding.co.nz is doing natural whey + shaker bottle combo for $72, with 5% off using the code dec13. Pretty decent stuff if you want a small protein compliment to your diet. Makes a great post workout shake :)

The pain you're talking about sounds like DOMS, it's a 'good' pain IMO. Chest and Tris DOMS is a great feeling, Legs not so.

 

After a decent leg workout (borderline puking in the squat rack) I usually can't walk properly for about 4 days, stairs and going to the bog are the worst activities you can attempt while in this soreness phase.

So yesterday I done chest then biceps and triceps.

When I war benching, my arm (Around forearm I think, or whole) felt really weak...I was doing much less than last week. Was struggling to bench really.

Also there's a significant difference between my right and left biceps/triceps wise. Was doing dumbells, 8kg, at 30+ and my left arm couldn't do anymore..my right could still do it easily.

Then I went to do cardio today. Biked there, warmed up body then done:
Stairs machine(fat burner+ setting) - done 550 stairs or so, was sweating heaps.

9 minutes on the treadmill - incline (10), speed (12). Stopped because asthma.

Then rowing.

Took 6 puffs ventolin before session. Ended up sweating much more than I expected. Woo!

Remember this important phrase "Friends don't let friends skip leg day".

Ahh yes, I (we) know how important leg day is :D

Luckily, I already have sexy leg muscles!

...nothing to brag about, but still a decent size/cut.

I need little work on the ol' legs.

Just enough to keep them maintained.

Although, I cannot put much weight on the legs - as the foot is still a bit sore under load.

 

Did some chest/back/shoulders today, easy on the shoulders and back.
