    Yes, it's normal and is called DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscular Soreness). Now, go a lift every muscle in your body that you missed, specifically your back and legs.

    Wait at least 48 hours untill you lift again, your body needs time to repair. Try working out 3 times per week for starters. You will be suprised at the quick gains you will make. There are plenty of threads posted on this site to guide you in the right direction and don't be afraid to ask questions. Welcome to the forums!!

    DOMS has no correlation to a good workout....so you could feel fine and still have had an awesome workout

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

    I seem to always/often get DOMS from leg work, very very rarely from upper-body stuff.
