Muscle soreness

Hi,I am hoping for some advise on the muscle soreness I keep experiencing. I have been attending my local gym for about two years now, I make sure I stretch and warm up before using the weights but still suffering from the soreness which can put me out of routine.
Any advise would be grateful.

    How often do you train with weights and how often do you have rest days?

    You will find that the soreness is doms (delayed onset muscle soreness).

    Try a gram or two of Vit C after training, also is your diet high enough in protein to repair the muscle tissue as quickly as possible ?

    I go to the gym at least three times per week. I split my routine i.e. Back/Biceps, Chest/triceps/shoulder, Legs. Stomach I normally do on all of these days. I go to a local gym which is used mostly as a fitness club by older persons to keep fit, I can't say there is an overgrown muscle in sight, so sometimes my motivation faulters. I drink 'joe weiders - protein 90' after work outs and take creatine capsuls before and after. I try to stick to a healthy diet as much as I can but having a family doesn't always make this easy. I am also prone to the odd chocky bar!! I am 5ft 6" and weigh 66kg, I am finding it hard to loose just a few extra kilos which i'd be happy with, but hey...I know muscle weighs more than fat! In the beginning I really noticed the changes for the better in the shape of my body but now seemed to have stagnated, and still the muscle soreness after about 18 months. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Hi Juliet
    If you don't vary often your routine and don't lift very heavy or explosive, then I cannot see any other reason to your soreness that maybe you simply don't drink enough water?
    Does your gym have a sauna? This can help wonders as well.
