It's called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), but you'll note the Delayed word there. The pain usually shows up 24 hours later and is gone around 72 hours. It's actually not fully understood (2003 analysis in Sports Medicine): Up to six hypothesised theories have been proposed for the mechanism of DOMS, namely: lactic acid, muscle spasm, connective ...

It's impossible to say nothing's wrong with you. I'm not a doctor. If you have medical concerns, see a doctor. But that aside, I would say it is normal to be out of breath after a hard set of any compound lift. Heavy squats (for 5 reps) almost always leave me feeling somewhere between out of breath and about to pass out. There are things that can make ...

You're supposed to breath a bit heavy after deadlifting. 65 pounds is a bit light for this to happen, but it's fine. (Maybe you're holding your breath?) Lifting is hard work. If you're not breathing hard with a pounding heart and maybe some sweat after a long deadlift set, something is wrong.

If the bar is slipping from your grip that's generally a sign that you need to grip the bar better. That could mean gripping tighter, which is always helpful, but it could also mean using chalk or, if the weight is heavy enough to justify it, a hook grip.

The weight you're gaining and losing is water weight. Water binds to glucose and salt, amongst other things in your diet. It's simply not possible to remove 5lbs of fat, muscle, or bone from someone (without a knife) in 1-2 days. If you want to gain muscle and be fit, you should look into an effective strength training program like Starting Strength and ...

I've had this before and although I'm a little cautious to throw the overtraining flag, research suggests there is correlation if not causation: These individuals became acutely overtrained as indicated by significant reductions in running performance from day 1 to day 11. The overtrained state was accompanied by severe fatigue, immune system ...

I can only speak from experience as someone else that usually works out a few hours before going to sleep. I often have the same problem, particularly after cardio due to the elevated heartrate, but sometimes after weightlifting too. The best thing you can do for yourself is to establish a night-routine that will help relax your body between a workout and ...

3-5 grams of creatine per day (1 of your pills) is generally considered a safe amount. There has been evidence of liver/kidney damage as a result of taking too much Creatine, but seems to only be the case with people who already have kidney/liver problems. Studies have shown that as much as 20 grams of creatine per day is safe. The only real downside is ...

You need to strengthen your grip. Eventually when getting near 1RM (usually around 3RM) most people will need to flip to a "mixed grip", where one grip is overhand and the other is underhand. But it's a bad way to train and studies show that it doesn't develop you symmetrically (can't find the study at the moment). Pullups, chin ups, farmer's walks, and ...

I would reccomend upping the deadlift weight and only doing 3-8 reps max. Deadlifts seem to help when they're heavier. Most people are gonna feel pretty out of breath when they do any compound movement for that kind of rep range.
