3) I'm not sure why, but whenever I work out and lift heavy weights, that particular body part got tired for just only a while, and later on it's fine. Is that natural? Or is my muscles suppose to hurt like a ***** for the next day or so to prove that it's a 'powerful' workout?/ When I first started I had a hard time training my chest where I could feel it,ya the muscle would be tired or wornout but not really sore. As you develop your muscle you will notice your soreness will be worse and deeper. That is good! It's when you feel a sharp pain when you move a certain way is when you have done some damage. You will learn how to judge your work out by the pain. I like to push things but in my opinion when you do squats and you have a hard time walking for two days this is too much so I scale back the next work out. On the other hand if I feel no deep muscle soreness after chest I make sure to slow down my next work out and work the negatives more and I guarantee you will be sore.
