    Lift heavier. Fail sooner.

    Aus pretty much said it.
    Lift heavy with strict reps. No bounce swing or momentum.
    Having a spot is critical imo

    I posted this in another thread where you asked the same question:

    Soreness is always the most extreme when you first begin training. As you progress it generally becomes less and less. You amy have days when you feel pretty sore but it's almost never like it was in the beginning. The good news is soreness in no way equates to a workout being a good workout or not. I remember hearing Ronnie Coleman saying in a video a few years back that he couldn't remember the last time he'd been sore. He said it had been years and years.

    Good solid training is about stimulating the muscles, not annihilating them to the point of destruction each time you train.

    IMO I get way more sore from extreme higher rep ranges than I do from lower reps. My old workout partner was a former mr California. Everything we did was always high reps like 15-20 range. That gives you an insane pump and if you are lifting to failure you will build up so much lactic acid you will be sore as heck.

    Going heavy is awesome, of course I change up my routine and always go heavy as possible. BUT I do love the gnarly high reps and always super set for an insane pump.

    Shorter time inbetween sets helps make me sore to. Good luck brah

    Also depending on how long you have been training maybe take some time off. Once every 6 months I try and take close to a week or a week off. I come back strong and i literally get as sore as I did in the very beginning.

    Lighter weight, hi rep lifting is so much more intense/painful, especially if your not use to it. However, even this rarely makes me sore.

    20 squats @275lbs vs 6 @ 405lbs Which one will have you near puking?

    For me 20 for sure. When's the last time you took a week off?

    Austinite and Gearbox gave great advice. You could also try slowing down your reps, static reps and controlling both the eccentric and concentric portions of the lift.

    All good advice imo. I take time off every so often too and it does seem to sort of rejuvenate my entire body. although soreness isn't necessarily an indicator of progress I do think it means your body has become accustomed to your routine so when it happens to me I switch to high reps, do different exercises and change the order. It used to be called the muscle confusion principle but that's probably an outdated phrase.
