I think soreness in the legs gets over pronounced because of how much you need to use them. If I go heavy on say back or chest, i will be sore, but I can limit the use of those muscles fairly easily throughout the day. You simply cant do that with legs.

Most everyone is on the right track here, nutrition is important, but wont likely help with DOMS right now. As your body gets used to going heavy, the sorness will die down, but as eric and others have said you want to make sure you warm up properly, and you should not be going to failure.

You should consume carbohydrates right after heavy workout. Especially honey.
Honey is not optimal for post workout nutrition, is consists of roughly 39% fructose, which will not have an effect on glycogen levels in the muscle. I would suggest either a combo of dextrose and maltodextrin (50/50) or waxy maize starch in your post workout shake.

Absolutely. Soreness has a lot to do with the novelity of whatever you are doing. If you detrain an exercise and then go back to it, you will likely be sore. Then you will adapt and slowly become less sore if you are consistent.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Hi all,
Thanks for all the advice, well dont laugh but this weight training is probably gonna kill me, my legs were so stiff late last night I got out of bed to go downstairs for a drink and when I got to the first stair my leg refused to bend and I fell down most of the stairs.
I am ok but now have a great big carpet burn down one side of my back so I now walk funny and am all cut up as well..ha ha.
Never mind , I am gonna have a couple of days off though to recover although I did some bicep stuff for an hour this morning and will get back into it after the weekend.
Thanks guys...

Starting with 10-12 reps range seems rather high to me for squats... why not start lower?

Soaking in a tub with some epsom salt will help with the soreness too.
