    Some parts of my body, like my legs, butt, and back especially, get worked, then get sore for days after. Some parts like trieps, shoulder's and forearms get sore a little, but goes away fast. And some parts like my chest and biceps dont get sore at all... even after intence work out where I go to failure. Am I doing something wrong? How can I change it, it feels like those parts arent getting worked if they arent getting sore :dunno:

    thats weird, i can always feel the soreness in my chest, i can never feel it in my back, shoulders, or arms. Legs get really sore too, only hams though, never quads.

    I think the only place I'll get sore is in my calves, because I work them out once every few months. Being sore is not a good indicator of how hard you worked out.

    I can't seem to get my shoulders sore. My arms never get sore, but simply because of my arm injury. Its very aggravating. My chest gets the most sore, and I work it the hardest of any group, and it still lags behind my shoulders, back, and legs.

    You'll find an equal ammount that agree and disagree. My shoulders never get sore, but they are ahead of the rest of my body. My chest always gets sore, but its behind the best of my body. WTF is going on.

    I'm going to start training for performance.

    I will look for studies later but soreness is more associated with inflamation of CONNECTIVE and not muscle tissue. This is one of the reasons you are sore when you change an exersise even though the same muscle is being worked.

    DON'T FUCKING WORRY ABOUT BEING SORE lc

    If you are adding weight to the bar, you are progressing. It's very simple.
