The kind of pain you could get:
Joint pain - this is always bad, pain is your bodies way of saying something's up and you should not ignore joint pain, if you continue to push through it you can seriously injure yourself - forget bodybuilding. If you feel joint pain try to recall what might have caused it and stop it immideatly. Try a different angle, change the grip position, and try doing less, more reps with light weight instead of few reps with heavy weight.
Bad kind of pain - sharp, sudden and 'knife stab' kind of pain is really bad, it usually is a sign that you have seriously injured yourself. Tears and seperations cause this kind of pain - get someone to run and fetch a bag of ice for you and visit a doctor.
Good pain - pain that starts as a slow light burn at the end of your workout, slowly building up with every last step/rep until it gets really intense. Why? This is lactic acid building up in your muscles. Why is this pain good? The buildup of lactic acid is a great indicator that you are pushing yourself hard enough to develop muscle.
If you work out intensively enough, you will get micro tears in your muscles which your body then has to repair.
If you've had a good workout and feel no pain - don't fret, some people don't feel sore at all!
Do not forget to drink a lot of water, not underestimate sleeping properly, stop making common mistakes to become happier!
