I had the same problem when I started going to the Gym, the one I attend tends to be filled with 300 lb body builders...
It was really intimidating at first, but you soon realise that none of them really seem bothered about the size of your muscles lol... Infact they tend to be a bunch of really friendly people, most of them know what they are doing and tend to give you tips on what to do.

Is deadlift when its just you, and a bar, and weights (no bench or anything)?
You also mentioning squatting, so far i'm doing that with a dumbell in each hand.(i'm still feeling the effects pretty badly on my thighs/hamstring, which is why i'm worried about tomorrow) I think my instructor said he's keeping me to dumbells not bars for 2 weeks at which point he'll do a proper thing with bars and everything.
And eating..well hmm. I am only 17 and quite an..inconsistent eater but I wil try my best to eat as much as I can when a proper meal is actually made
As for your workouts, be consistent in which days you attend, the pain is good (as long as it's not serious), and will only get better if you go. Working out three times a week on intermediate days, is a solid regime.
Remember your training your internal organs to consistently produce development hormones and muscle, which requires consistency to be most effective, while the bodies natural disposition is to maintain and repair.Last edited by Saff123; 08-08-2009 at 11:33.
