Started 2nd Week Of Lifting Need Some Advise

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Well yesterday I started week 2... I have to say I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. I've read alot and done alot of research, and last week (my first week) I did squats 2 sets 10 reps no weights *I have alot of balance issues* emoticon then leg curls on stomach and back 2 sets 15 reps 20 lbs... Then I did 3 different abs exercises 1 set each 16 reps...

I've worked my way up to *yesterday* I didn't do squats just too many balance issues but I did walking lunges 2 sets 16 reps 5lbs, leg curls on stomach 2 sets 12reps 30lbs and back 2 sets 18 reps 30 lbs then did 3 different abs exersises 2 sets w/ 15 reps for 2 of them and 1 set of 15 reps for one.

Now I did the ab exersises on the other 2 days that I lifted as well and tried to increase reps...

Now here's my question I'm not nearly as sore today *my second day* after leg day as I was last week on my second day. I did the same amount of sets, 2 reps less but increased the weight by 15lbs... Did I do something wrong? I figured I would hurt after a workout esp. after adding weight... So I don't know if I'm just adjusting sooner than I thought I would or if I didn't push hard enough. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.. emoticon
