I've spent at least the last few hours reading through the site and doing some searching so I hope I'm not re-hashing well covered ground for the millionth time
I have pretty good knowledge but usually poor determination. I'll be lifting for a while consistantly and start seeing some good results then I stop - for whatever reason, none of them are ever good. My motivation is a seperate issue though. So I'm back in the gym now, hopefully for the long haul this time, and doing my routine, 1 body part per week and I'm not doing all that many sets/reps but I'm still quite sore 4-5 days afterwards!! My diet is decent and I don't believe that's the cause of this enhanced soreness but I could be wrong. So I have two questions from this:
1. Any ways to alleviate the pain at least a little? Type of aspirin? Massage? stretching? Hair of the dog?
2. Why might it be so bad? I've never had this problem in all the times I've gone back to the gym!
How much cardio is recomended for someone who is 5'7" and 160lbs with about 20%bf? I've looked and couldn't find any info on it, sorry if I missed it.
