if you're not really sore the next day does that mean you didn't lift hard enough?

    I'm getting to the point, especially on legs, where I can work pretty hard and not be too sore the next day. I have a little soreness, but nothing major at all. My roommate is convinced that if you're not real sore the next day, then you didn't lift hard enough. :ugh:

    Never judge a workout by the soreness result.

    I don't really get really sore now, only the first couple weeks I was heavily lifting.

    I don't believe it has any correlation.

    I know I lifted hard enough, but apparently other people can judge that better than I can. :hsugh:

    I love feeling sore all over. My quads aren't sore after my latest workout. I can't figure it out. I keep waiting for them to get sore, but it's been 3 days. What's weird is that I haven't lifted legs in 5 years, and this was only my second leg workout. I was pretty sore after the first one. I took it up a notch for my second workout, and no soreness? My calves are killing me though :)

    usually you just get more sore after not lifting for awhile

    Pretty much everything on me still gets sore and I have been doing this going on 6yrs. My back and shoulders don't get sore though and I kill them, kinda weird. What causes one person to get sore and another not?

    soreness is related more to connecting hardware in your body, not the muscle tissue.

    generally soreness means more growth. the thing u gotta watch out for is getting too sore because if you get sore all the time it becomes very easy to get too sore. and when you get too sore too often you can actually start losing muscle
