    Overworking, underworking..

    Ok, question time again.. When I work my legs, for the next few days I have trouble walking, going up stairs.. and whatever else that requires any, well, movement. When working anything else, I get a little bit tigher and kinda tender, but nothing to this degree.. Am I overworking my legs? Underworking the rest of my body? Or is it just that because I'm walking all the time, I relize how tender my legs really are?

    Also.. as a beginner, what sort of goals should I be setting for myself? How long does it really take to get some showing results (I know I'm stronger already, and I think I've lost a little bit of weight.. but how long till muscle is actually showing?)

    After an upper body day, try walking around on your hands all day. My point is just that you stress the leg muscles much more than any other group during a normal day. You'll just notice the pain much more. You're working the muscles fine.

    I think legs have taken the longest to notice a difference as far as appearance goes. For me at least. Probably because my legs were the fattest part on my body.
