Alright /fit/ I did my first day in the gym today, I was lifting for 60 minutes. I'm doing compound shit. But I think I got DOMS
What the fuck do I do about DOMS? My chest, shoulders, arms (lower and upper) hurt, and even my back. I gotta hit the gym tomorrow but this shit hurts so bad. What do I do?
I'm not whiny dude I'm just saying it hurts and wondering what to do, I don't wanna send myself to the hospital. I wanna be able to lift the months to come
The same lbs/kg as I lifted, or should I continue increasing? Cause it's hard to raise arms and shit when it feels so tiring
>doing more than one compound exercise in a day
You dun fucked up.
And you were probably pushing past your limit aswell like a fag.
But still, it was probably down to ignorance rather than stupidity or ego.
Take your time, have long breaks, allow your muskulls time to recover, don't lift to limit and don't lift what you can't lift without fucking up your form or injuring yourself.
There's no point going to the gym tomorrow, you're just going to fuck yourself up further.
The path to gainz is not a sprint, it's a slow jog.
I'm sorry for all these retards OP.. it's impossible to get decent advice here. Anyways as someone mentioned just increase the weight as your program tells you to. Now if you can't actually lift the weights (while trying, ind you) then lower the weight untill you can and finish your workout.
>The same lbs/kg as I lifted, or should I continue increasing? Cause it's hard to raise arms and shit when it feels so tiring
If you insist on training chest and arms again, use light weights and focus on ROM and high reps.
Although I'd recommend doing legs instead and giving your upper body another day or two. You really don't wanna get rhabdo.
If this is indeed your second day at the gym, you will feel like complete shit tomorrow evening. Not trying to discourage you, you need to work through this shit anyway. I still remember how I felt after my first leg day. It was terrifying.
I got to question the program here.
Your problems is you sore from yesterday because you're untrained.
What you should be doing as a newb is instead of the 1 hour each day, 2 day in a row split, you combine them into a single 2 hour day and take the next day off.
general rule: anytime you aren't sure, do a cardio day and save lifting for the next day
What fucking routine? If it's your first or second day what routine do you have to follow? Your body is only your own, only you know your limits and genetics. Nobody can make a pre-made schedule for you
Link me something then, because I googled it and I didn't find anything that I like. I posted a thread for help before yesterday but nobody gave a shit
>google novice program
First link is starting strength, second is ice cream fitness.
>didn't find anything that i like
I am beginning to see a problem here op but try strong lifts.
Dude I'm not saying they're wrong, but I was trying to test the gym first. You know, FIRST day in the gym right? It's not like I've fucking been there before.
I'll do the 5x5 Stronglift because I want strength and bulk and I'm not that big, I'm afraid I won't be able to lift a lot though especially deadlifting but whatever, I'll try.
It pisses me off though that it's 3 days a week, why not 4? I'm a fucking neet I have nothing to do 90% of the time, FUCK
If you've never lifted before (or haven't in a long time) DOMS will be really bad at first. My first couple times in the gym, I needed like 3-4 days rest. Now I feel like I could go pretty much every day, and I actually have to force myself to take rest days that I don't want. That's all within a couple months time.
Its a 3 day regime so you dont wreck your shit you imbecile.
Rest days may be boring but they are important in allowing muscles to recover and are there in the program for a reason.
I understand that but why the fuck is it only 3 days? What about the weekend? Why not at least once on Sunday? What is the point of having 2 days off when you have nothing to do?
The 5x5 Stronglift seems like a great routine but 3 days, and only 45 minutes? Whaaaat?
Your. Body. Needs. Time. To. Recover.
Jeebus Fucking Cripes, guy.
Do DDP Yoga on days off from lifting. Cardio on other days. Most of all quit being a retard.
You're brand new to this. The people who have designed the beginner routines that we recommend have probably been lifting longer than you've been alive. Accept that they know more than you do, follow the routine and shut the fuck up.
Calm yourself, I just was misinformed. I will do the 5x5 stronglift, and Ill throw in some cardio inbetween. Is that a good idea? I think it is. Im starting monday, wish me luck fellas. Thanks for your help ,its priceless
i'm 152 lbs 5''7, kinda in between of chubby and fat.
I've gone on/off for gym the last year made some small progress and so, but how does this sound
2500-2600 bulking and doing SS with ab+bicep training (I want dem showmuscles) Abs always after gym
And I have never done deadlift before and all my gymbros go to other gym so I'm afraid to try it and fail same with the barbell rows.
How much weight should I try on the deadlift ?
what split are you using that you will train the same body parts on the next day? literally no good program (SS, U/L, PPL) does this. You should be doing a 3 day full body split desu senpai. And yeah, get over your doms, they will be gone in a week or two of training consistently. Also if you are noob you should increase the weight with each session, go read the sticky please.
