Only had a 50-minute or so window to work out last night...got in a half-hour cardio, increased the weights on the upper body and increased the crunches. Felt good and no soreness this morning.

I understand that you only had 50 mins, but I would think if you have NO soreness, you need to up the workout. Thoughts?

Agreed. I'm walking the fine line between going too easy and going too hard.But I actually increased the weights on all the upper body machines i used, to the point I struggled to complete my third set of 10. Either I'm becoming a little more accustomed to pushing weights around or i need to push a little harder. I'll keep ramping things up.

My understanding is you want to be struggling toward the end of your first set.

No problem with easing your way in and feeling things out. Not saying you should up it a lot now and be hurting big time, but eventually, some soreness is a good sign. Just remember, no matter how far you push it, your workout now is MUCH better than what your workout was a few months ago.Now, if my lazy ass would start at it again.

Oh geez...if i'm struggling at the end of the first set, there's no way I'll get through the third.

When i first started the simplest stuff a couple months, I literally struggled to do 10 pushups...it was pathetic. I feel much better now.

I've been lifting weights for about 2 full years now and I still get sore after just about every workout. of course, I'm totally into shredding my muscles and pumping to the max, so there's that.

Yeah, thats not good shake. At this point you should not be getting sore anymore, if you are serious you could be tearing muscles more than you should be.

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

Some of my thoughts on resistance training. Split body into different parts for different workouts. Chest & shoulders. Back & abs. Arms (tris & bis). Legs (quads & hams).Start off 4 exercisers X 3 sets. The first set is to ready the muscles for the work sets, consentrait on your form, you should be able to do 10 reps quite easily. The 2nd set you increase the weight and should do 8 reps where u could have done 10 at the most. The 3rd set you again increase the weight and do 5 to 7 reps, as many as you can do. 1 compound and 1 isolation exercise for each body part. example:bench press. 50 x 10, 60 x8, 70 x6dumbell flys. 10 x 10, 12 x8, 14 x 6military press. 20 x 10, 25 x 8, 30 x 6dumbell side lateral raises. 8 x10, 10 x 8, 12 x 6Up it to 6 exercises X 3 sets after a couple of weeks.You should be a little sore the next day after a workout. You should have a protien drink as soon after a workout as you can.I can tell you more about supplements, changing your workouts, drop sets, negative reps, ok i'm rambling.I was really into this stuff about 5 years ago. Getting back into it now. If you want me to write more I will.GO Jeff

I have some glutamine from when I was working out before with my roomate, but he's gone now and I forget when/ how much of it I'm supposed to take. I might be a bit different with my weights, but my first set if I can do 12 reps, it's too light. Usually I do around 10, break for 45 seconds or so, then do as many as I can at the weight lower than my first set. Usually I get to 5 or 6, and my muscle's fatigued.

A multi vitamin everyday would be the first thing I would reccomend.Protien is used to repair muscles. Whey protien is absorbed fast, often taken shortly after a workout to aid recovery. Some protein powders have carbohydrates as well. You would want a powder with as little carbs as possible. You will get benifit from having a protien drink within 30 mins of working out. You can mix it with water, I usually mix it with no fat milk and a banana in the blender.Creatine helps you store energy in muscles. Normally taken in the morning with water or fruit juice. It benifits both endurance and resistance training. You should also drink a couple of extra glasses of water a day when taking it.The workout style I mentioned in an early post is for muscle building, I forgot your goal was to do a triathlon.
