    I want to create a blog to get advice and track progress.

    I'll be posting weekly maxs with a few photos and good workout mixes.

    Nothing too fancy, I was a skinny runt and only started using the gym a month ago, but I'm getting healthier so I want to continue and improve.

    mon: deltoids traps lats and quads
    tues: chest biceps triceps and hamstrings
    rest
    thurs: abdo circuits + upper from 1
    fri: sprints + upper from 2
    weekend

    Warmup with 10 minutes cardio. 2 exercises per muscle, starting with the largest groups. 3 sets (12, 8 and 4), aiming to fail on the last rep.

    Diet: 3000 cal = 200g protein, 400g carbs + fat

    Hopefully I'll get a bmi, bp, resting hr and maybe some lipid stuff as well which will satisfy my nerdy side. mmm graphs

    Is it good that I don't get muscle pain for day after the gym now, or a sign that I need to move up weight?

    DOMS isn't really a good or bad sign from what I have gathered. I guess it shows the muscle has been worked but not having DOMS doesn't mean you haven't worked that muscle,if that makes sense. Usually, you will get DOMS after a period out of the gym but I guess it depends on the person!

    To sum up, no it isn't a sign you need to move up weight. Just move up weight when you can.

    I;d say start with a weight that you can do 4x8 sets/reps with, move up to 4x12 with that weight then up the weight. Not with free weights, but as you seem to be using machines which normally only go up in 10kg increments then thats probably the most effective method of lifting more for x/y sets/reps.
