    Im sore after every workout, but the degree of soreness varies. Chest,back,shoulders,traps,calves,abs--moderate amount, Arms-low amount, Legs-high amount
    Also, when i change up my workouts, soreness is always a little higher.

    After I tried SwoleCats leg workout last Friday that happened to me, my legs were spasming so bad I couldnt walk down stares normally. You have to treat every workout like it your last, if you just punce around and dont feel the pumps and pain then you aint doing sh!t, you might as well go home.

    Yeah everyone gets sore but if you don't its not a big deal and it doesn't mean you didn't train well. It does happen. I don't stay sore as long while ON though.

    Yes, you should. It is called progressive overload.

    I would get to a point to where I wouldn't get sore anymore, and wondered the same thing. But someone suggested trying to mix your routine up a bit, try a different angle, add another set, or increase weight, do an exercise you haven't done in a while, add a few reps to your routine, etc. Low and behold I got a bit sore the next day. But don't sweat it, your muscles are always adapting and I do get to the point to where I wouldn't be as sore the next day, just a little tight.

    I find it just depends on my diet etc. Soreness is not a factor of growth.. until I added deadlifts to my back routine my back never ever got sore. My chest is always sore along with tri's. But never bi's and legs for me recover quickly too. haha I have been of for 2 months now with an upper body injury so I can imagine how sore I am going to be when I return

    This information is absolutely correct. Soreness is not necessarily a factor of growth, and recovery times differ from person to person especially while cycling. It is always a good idea to change up your routines periodically, but lack of soreness in the days following a particular workout isn't always an indication of poor performance or non-productivity in the mucsle group.

    Needmore and Justincredible hit the nail on the head. Keep switchin it up to keep your body guessing though. Like they say too much of a good thing can be bad. Soreness is deffinately NOT a way to measure success in the gym. Only the scales, the mirror and your lifts are the ways to measure your success. Keep on keepin on!!

    when you stop getting sore, you should change workouts or quit, unless training for a powerlifting meet, then your joints stay sore

    Lack of soreness is not nescessarily indicative that your workout was innefective. As years go by it will deminish and for MYSELF I add more volume then I get OMS & DOMS.
