sore after first workout

So I joined a gym and they let me use one of their personal trainers for 3 sessions. Anyways after the first work out I'm so sore. He worked out my arms and upper body. now I'm a small guy and was already doing the smallest weights on most of the machines. When does this soreness go away so I can workout again?

It really depends on your goals, and how your workout is structured. For example, I work each bodypart hard and heavy once a week, split between four different workouts. I'm generally sore somewhere everyday, but not the bodyparts I'm working out that day, because they've had a full week to rest and repair.

Other people prefer more of a cardio based full-body routine where they do an exercise or two for every bodypart in a single workout, and for that type of routine I'd suggest at least a day of rest in between each session in the gym, probably two ot even three days until your stamina improves.

The direct answer to your question is that there is nothing "dangerous" about working out with DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), though it will definintely affect performance. Being new to the gym though, be careful not to push it when experiencing bad pain, such as what can occur in the ligaments and tendons as they get used to the new stresses associated with weight training, or of course if you pull a muscle.

Soreness is not an indicator of a good or bad workout.

Id take a few days rest. Your muscles will take some time to repair themselves. You can actually over do it and not get good results.

take a good multi and stretch after the workout and on your days off. i dont feel like i gave it my all if i'm not a little sore the next day. which the more you work out the the less sore you'll get.

If you work out, do a 5 day routine.

Do ONE body part a day.

Example:

Monday : Chest/Abs
Tues : Back
Weds :Shoulders
Thurs :Arms
Fri : Legs

Why do it this way? Because everytime you lift, you actually tear your muscles slightly, they need some time to heal. This way the next day or so, the portion you are working out isn't sore and you will do it, plus it will allow 7 days for your muscles to heal.
