before I ask this question, i'm just going to warn you i'm a complete novice and have just started weightlifting in the last month.
question: i've been weightlifting for almost a month now at my home with a bench I have and some free weights. I've been benching (3x5 sets) and bicept curls (as many reps as I can do till my arms give out) and tricept extensions (same). I know this is not a good way to gain strength, but in only 3 weeks i've gone from benching 115 to benching 145, so atleast it has worked some. But anyways, the question is: should I be sore the next day after lifting? I've worked a labor job for 4 years and nothing seems to make me sore. I don't know if I should be getting sore or not. But regardless i've been making decent gains for just 3 weeks of lifting.
all advice welcome! Thanks
