    not sore good or bad?

    Does anybody else not get sore? Donít get me wrong the first week back after not working out for a week or more Iím sore as hell but after that I donít get sore. Iím lifting heavy 5-6 days a week. I was just wondering if this is common. My friend who I train with is training for a competition is always sore. Iím just wondering if Iím some freak or do I need to do something different.

    thanks

    I found another thread that answered my question kind of. Are there ant doc's out there that can explain it? ( why some people get sore and some don't)

    I'm in the same boat as you. Maybe its the "wrong" kind of trainning, I mean, your body rebuilds itself after you tear it up ( workout ) maybe your workouts aren't "tearing" your body up like they should be? You gotta be careful though, as to not "overtrain". Maybe up your weights a tad and go from there?

    Anyways just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in, I know how you feel though, but am still seeing gains so I'm happy

    I lift as heavy as I can. and I'm still not really sore. I am seeing nice gains. I think that my body is just repairing quickly.

    I've read somewhere that everyone is different. Some people feel workouts more than others. Some feel it after 1 day, and some after 2 (like me). And some don't feel it at all. I have a friend who never gets sore either.

    If it is an exercise I haven't done in awhile I tend to get sore. But after doing it for a week or two I no longer get sore from it. Like yesterday I did heavy deads and good mornings for the first time in about 3 weeks and today my back and hams are killing me.

    slow negatives tend to illicit more soreness than anything else, there's nothing wrong with not getting sore, after years of training, i rarely, if ever got sore unless i completely changed up my workouts, and made plenty of gains, once i started doing DC training and very slow negatives is when i started feeling the soreness again

    I used to be like that, i would bench press every other day to failure and not be sore. I have found that by resting a muscle group longer, and shocking your muscles with different exercises from different angles, the next time you work the muscle group you will be more sore. For instance, when i did chest before, i would ench press every other day. I would get to the point where if i wanted to, i could bench every day and not feel sore at all. Then, my personal trainer told me to rest at least 3 days b/t workouts of the same muscle group. Also, instead of just doing bench, do bench on day 1 and dumbell incline or cable fly or something different. Then day 4 or 5 when i do chest again, hit the incline bench, do another dumbell excercise, weighted dips or pushups. Trust me, if you want to be real sore, try doing 4 sets of pushups to failure after a chest workout.... i guarantee you'll be sore the next day...

    Adjusting my workout schedule and exercises has caused me to become sore once again, often for 2-3 days after a workout.

    Maybe this will not work for you, but it has for me!

    My body parts are always sore the next day, only because I go harded each training day weather it be more weight or more reps, Im always pushing myself to advance. My legs are sore usually for 3 or 4 day, for me I know I didnt traing well enough if Im not sore the next day. Get to the point where you are sore but not overtrained and youll grow even better.
