NROL is far from a low weight High rep program. Lifting heavy is important as that *toning* is muscle building. NROL is a great program!

I am new to the group but have been lifting for about 7 months now. I am trying to lift lighter weights with numerous (15 reps) and 4-5 sets because I really need to tone up. I am finally starting to see some muscle definition. I just recently started to follow the routines in New Rules of Lifting for Women.

Have a blessed day!

Is is muscle soreness? Joint soreness? That is a good place to start.

Muscle soreness is part of the thing. I am actually quite addicted to DOMS emoticon

If it is joint pain, that is another issue entirely and might require a trip to the doc.

As for the soresess (assuming it is muscle) magnesium really helps me with my soreness along with foam rolling. Epsom salt baths are a great way to relax it away as well. Yoga/stretching can help. Make sure you're warming up good before and cooling down/stretching when you're done. I spend a good solid 10 min warming up and about the same cooling down with my workouts.

Are you taking classes then?

I don't see food as being much related to the helping/hindering of muscle soreness. It is part of the thing with working out.

How long have you been doing the gym thing? It might just be the newness/doing more than accustomed too bit. Stretching is a big must, love a good stretch.
As far as food goes what do you eat? Eating properly makes such a big difference

Hello, first let me say this sounds like the group for me. I started 2014 with the intent to lose 30 lbs, I have lost 17 pounds doing home exercises. With 2 1/5 months left in 2014, I decided to join a gym to help me lose the additional pounds.

The problem with doing this is MY BODY IS SORE!!!!! I just had my 49th birthday, so I don't know if it's age or trying to keep up in class, as opposed to stopping the dvr when I wanted to at home.

If anyone has any suggestions that could help with dieting, or getting rid of the soreness, pre or post workout supplements please do share.

I'm also looking for friends to share this journey with.
