    Default 57 years old

    Hi everyone,

    So I have been taking my father to the gym who is 57. He has not worked out or ate healthy in about 27 years. He has bad knees and also a herniated disc. So far he has lost 22 pounds. He was weighing 245 and weighs now 232. So I have him doing light weights and my question is, although we do a full work out routine the muscles we work out never get soar. Why? I always have him perform slow sets in proper form and I am always soar and he always says he isnt. Is that normal? You would think after 27 years of not working out he couldnt get out of bed. Thank you for any responses in advance!

    Muscle soreness isnt an indication of a good workout, as long as he is performing exercises and getting bigger/stronger its working for him. You may find adding weight, or changing exercises causes muscle soreness
