    Instantaneous soreness for strength?

    Hey Guys

    My first post here.

    I noticed somewhat of a trend in my workouts. Whenever I can feel soreness in my muscle immidiately following a rep (probably due to max tension in the muscle), i gain strength in that muscle.

    However I can rarely achieve this anymore. Sure i get DOMS from some workouts, but that does not seem to have nearly the positive effect as when i get immidiately sore.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Also, does anyone have any ideas how i might be able to do it consistently?

    For awhile, supramaximal Neg reps would seem to tear my muscle on the spot, but not anymore.
