I workout leg Monday and I am still sore Friday! Is it normal to be that extremely sore after weight training? I am been doing light cardiovascular exercise and arms but I want to start doing legs again. Any suggestions?

Yes, when you first start using them, your sore for so long cause your beginning, the more you use weights, you will start heeling faster, but you still will get sore, that means its working, you will be fine just give yourself time to heel

Legs usually take longer to recover from a tough workout because you active a lot on muscle in your legs. Increase the protein intake and be patient. Should recover in 3-7 days

I guess I have to have patience to recover!

Buy some Epsom salts to put into a hot bath (1or2 cup fulls) & soak for 20 to 30mins. Great for muscle aches & pains. Great just b4 bedtime too! :)

It helps if you eat bananas. Also jogging works the soreness out.

Your welcome,  have no more than 3 epsom baths a week.  Drink plenty of water b4 & after u take a bath.  The magnesium salts are great for drawing toxins & detoxifying the body

Use a foam roll and roll them out. It pushes out all of the lactic acids out and helps you recover a lot faster.  If it's the first time doing this watch a video and I'm not going to lie but it hurts too, until you roll out all of the knots in your legs. End result you will be fine.
I ran 6 miles and did 4 sets of 12 squats starting at 90#- 145#'s and a bunch of other legs stuff. Rolled at the end of all of it, I'm just fine no soreness at all!
