    What?
    when you first started out to run or work out. how come you can actually feel your muscles breaking down the next few days but not after you've been doing it for a while.

    does it means that you have to work harder and harder or else you won't gain anything?

    i lift weight about a year ago and after lifting 120 lbs on my first week, my body feels like pudding the next few days. after lifting for about 6 months, i do reps of 170-180 and didn't feel a thing. does that mean i should lift more just so my muscle and break down?

    If you are adding weight to the bar, you are progressing and (probably) making muscle gains.

    Soreness is not a good indicator of how hard you worked out.
