Am i doing Weightlifting right ? - AnswerHealth

Am i doing Weightlifting right ?!


Question: I would ask what sort of weights i should be doing but i suppose its hard to say.

So intstead all i ask, is :
Yesterday i did some gym work, now my triceps and abs ache, but my chest, back, shoulders, and biceps dont.

Does this mean i'm doing my triceps & abs right ? And i should up the weights on the others ?
OR
Does it mean i'm doing too much on my triceps and abs and i should calm down ?

You should be doing your triceps and abs right as long as they ache. An important thing to take note is if you do weights for a specific muscle, don't use your momentum to push your lifts instead do them slowly and with the correct technique. I also suggest you do something like triceps, chest and abs one day, biceps and back the next and then repeat so you work a different muscle group each day and give the other ones you worked the day before a rest. You should up the weights when you feel more confident and having a buddy to help spot you is also helpful. Just remember to take it easy and start slowly and gradually work your way up. Good Luck.

it entirly depends on what exercises you are doing, it could be the fact you are doing more reps on triceps..or more weight. could also depend on how long you have been working on certain areas...if you recently done a hard workout on ab/tris it could be rising previous pain. you COULD be doing the exercises wrong, get a trainer for a day to show you correct technique

Man you should start ''Split Routine Training'',if you already haven't.
This aims at exercising individual muscle groups on different days of the week,like:
Mon-[triceps,biceps,calves]
Tue-[shoulders,back]
Wed-[forearms,traps]
Thu-[legs,thighs,hips].
Very effective,you can really see a difference.
All the best.

My experience of 36 years told me 1 ) drink plenty of water 2 ) tea without sugar as much as you like 3 )take lida dali daidaihua weight slimming loss pill Original from www.buylida.com Afte taking for 1 month, I lost 20LB. It really works 4} keep exercise . The appetite will disappear in 2 or 3 days . Continue fasting for 7 to 10 days . When you start eating again take 4 small meals daily , once a week you can indulge in gobbling whatever you want . You can do this every 3 months . You will Keep fit by these step!

IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU DAMAGED FIBERS IN YOUR TRICEPS AND ABS. THAT'S ALL, THE MUSCLE DID SOME WORK THAT IT WAS NOT USED TO DOING. HOWEVER, THIS DOESN'T MEAN THE THE WORKOUT WAS EFFECTIVE, AFTER YOU DO THE EXERCISES A FEW WORKOUTS, YOUR NOT GOING TO GET SORE AT ALL, BUT IT WILL STILL BE EFFECTIVE. FOR A WORKOUT TO BE EFFECTIVE, YOU NEED TO OVERLOAD THE MUSCLE, THAT'S ALL, SORENESS IS NOT A GOOD INDICATOR OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A WORKOUT. OVERLOAD AND STRENGHT GAINS ARE GOOD SIGNS.
