If you start working out with weights and you are working out heavy three times a week....how long does it take to build muscle???
A month? Two months....several months???
I know this probably varies with each person but let's just say your hurting between each workout so your probably doing something right.

I agree. If you eat right (quality food) and train properly, you can gain 1-3 pounds of muscle a month until you hit your max.Books I've Written on Figure Prep and Female Bodybuilding. Check 'em out below.

Doing it right = using good form, a well-designed program, weights that are challenging to you and good nutrition.
DOMS can occur any time you do something your body isn't used to... or when you are not fully warmed up... or when you workout longer than you usually do... or...
There can be any number of reasons for DOMS -- it is not necessary to have DOMS in order to have had an effective workout, nor is DOMS necessarily a sign of an effective workout.
