Ok, I realise that after a good workout it should come as no real surprise that your muscles are sore, but normally i only really get sore the next day. Today I was deadlifting and after my last work set, my back was fucking sore. Carrying the plates back to the tree one at a time was even somewhat of a task because of it. I'm pretty new to this still and my poundages are nothing to brag about, or worse... (My worksets were 3x5 at 245lbs), but this is still fairly hard for me. I've been increasing slowly though so I was kind of surprised when my back hurt so much. Anyways, is it normal to be very sore right away? Also, when i'm deadlifting for reps, the first rep is always significantly harder than the rest. Does that mean I"m cheating? I let the bar just touch the ground before the next pull, but i'm pretty sure i'm not bouncing.
