I'm in my first two months of "serious" working out. I'm not planning in competing or anything, I'm just 35 Male and decided to try to get in good shape. Currently I am training three days on, one day off. I'm doing upper on day one, lower on day two, and cardio on day three, then one day off. Each day on takes about an hour to an hour and a half.
I have been eating IBU profen pretty much everyday just so I can get out of bed. My routine is mostly heavy weights exercising with 80-90% of my maximum on each lift. I'm just wondering if this much tightness and soreness is normal or if I am just overdoing things?
I have also changed my diet as follows: eat six times a day each meal consisting of a fist full of lean protein, half a fist of complex carbs, and a thumb size of fats. Comes out to about 2400-2700 calories a day.
I'm kinda just winging everything hoping that I'm doing it all right. Any pointers or tips from some more experienced lifters would be greatly appreciated.
