    Not getting sore after a workout

    I have not been getting sore after a workout. I been lifting harder now more then ever. I'm on gear right now. I'm on deca and test e. Two shots 900 mg per week. I know your recovery time is faster when on gear. But my frist cycle i got sore when using roids. But it been like this since the secound week of the cycle. And now i'm on my 5th week. Is this normal?

    Hmmm...there are a lot of factors attributed to feeling sore. If you are working out harder than ever, then I dunno. Soreness isn't always a good way to gauge good workouts. I'm guessing that the culprit is most likely your training, but I could be wrong.

    Just because you aren't sore, it doesn't mean you didn't get a good workout. You'll find that if you are advanced and juiced up, soreness is not something you get. If you are doing everything correctly in your routine, soreness should only be a sign that you overtrained or you are on the verge of injury. A little soreness is always good, though!

    Do burnout sets, and do them till you cant do no more. And if you still aint sore add more weight.

    Soreness is microscopic tearing of the muscle fibers. Its called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). The soreness is not caused by a build up of lactic acid. Commonly held misconception that has been disproved by many studies. Another misconception is that muscle soreness is a positive sign to an efficient workout.
    Different theories on what causes DOMS. Some say that damage to the muscle fibers or connective tissue is the main cause of pain, although general inflammation and the increased release of certain enzymes has also been implied.

    Just do other exercises, you will be sore trust me. I used to do the same thing everyweek and wondered why i wasnt getting sore. Not to say you need to be sore to grow I just feel like im ripping apart more/different fibers when I vary it up and get sore

    No matter what, IMO you should always change up your routine. You don't want those muscles adapting to your training or else you'll hit plateau's much quicker and that will stall your growth.

    Like the guys say, just because your not sore doesn't mean you've had a poor workout, but equally we all need to vary our routine; my experience is that muscles tend to aclimatise themselves with a routine after just a couple of weeks, so variation in exersices, poundage and rotation is the key.

    I've had the same problem on wheels over the last while, but now that I've moved away from machines onto a total free-weight routine, the burn's back ;-)

    Getting sore is something I don't get anymore. From time to time it happens. I changed up my routine and I feel great.
