I started going to the gym about 3 weeks ago and I'm confused about some things:
- When I started, my muscles were sore after the workout and I did some research and found out that it's completely normal. But now, I don't feel any soreness again. I've tried increasing the weight of everything I'm doing but I'd only get tired when lifting but I won't feel any soreness at night or the day after. Is this normal?
- I feel more energetic after each workout. The only thing I take before going to the gym is a small coffee (without sugar/cream) from Tim Hortons and nothing else (I'm always fasting). I spend about 2 hours doing a full body workout. Why do I feel more energetic after I'm done?
- I started doing deadlifts but I could keep on doing it for as long as 7 sets. I'd only need to take about 30 seconds rest before I'm ready again. Increasing the weight didn't have any effect. As long as I can lift it from the ground, I can do Multiple sets with 5-9 reps. Is this okay/normal? I've asked people to check my form and they said it's fine (I also don't feel any pain after doing deadlifts)
