Just got out of the gym and set a PR of 350x5 DL at 163lbs. It's not insane, but I'm happy about it.

what's worse:

yesterday between sets i was eavesdropping on some dude telling his newbie friend how target the different heads of his biceps on arms day (haha), anyway the noob guy saw me doing deadlifts and asked his friend about it:

"O don't do that, that's really bad for your back".

gawd.

The first 6 months I started working out... the morning after each workout I would feel like I was hit by a mother fucking train. Whatever I worked would be so sore I would have trouble doing daily activities. Now, not so much.

I'm going up in weight and AFTER the workout (after I do the exercises or when I leave the gym) I still have that "I just got destroyed in there" feeling- but the soreness isn't there, or nearly as much... well except for legs/calves, I still can't walk after a good leg work out.

What2do?

Do not worry about it. Your training goals do not care if you are sore or not. Standard internet exercise advice.

DOMS is a pretty poor indicator of a good workout. As long as your weights are going up, who cares?

I've been jogging a couple of miles every morning for about 9 months now. For most of the time, I made the mistake of listening to music, so i didn't push myself very much.

For the past two months, I've been running a lot harder. My legs are sore and have more muscle. I usually never go faster than an 8 minute mile pace but I'm running almost every day.

So, will I eventually not be sore? Or should I take half a week breaks?

what rep range are you doing? i find 5x5 doesn't give me much DOMS, but i used to do 8-10 quite a bit and that killed me.

also, shit like flies etc where there's a stretch component seemed to leave me a lot sorer.

5x5 for big, compound exercises. 8-10 for the smaller muscle groups... Neither is leaving me sore besides squats.

I rarely get DOM's except for leg day too. Basically, if you are killing the squats, working the calves, and hammering the hamstrings you are gonna be sore! You are probably using more weight with a greater ROM (hope you are) than any other muscle group so it should be no surprise you can't walk after a leg workout.

Exercise is most important for today's life.
One should do exercise regularly to be fit all time.
Exercise include swimming, cycling, jogging etc.
One should also eat healthy food. Yoga is best for health
You watch Yoga programs for doing yoga.
