Hey guys quick question i want to clear something up,
my question is my friend tells me that if your (lets say chest)isnt sore the next day or the day after your workout that you didnt work it out hard enough, therefore your not going to get the maximum growth..is there any truth to this?
soreness and growth really have nothing to do with each other. the degree to which a person does or doesn't get sore after a workout is an individual thing. two people could do the exact same workout as far as intensity and have different amounts of soreness.

One more question before i go maybe stupid one but i have to ask, i was wondering if you guys can tell me are some signs that i've had a good workout.. I know that u cant tell me what my body feels but i was maybe looking for examples of what you guys feel after a good workout. thats why i asked the first question cuz im not sure if i work my body hard enough..thanks again

I know I've had a good workout when i feel like i couldn't do 1 more rep. and its an effort just to flex the muscle without weight.......
Gotta love the pump.....
Looking in the mirror and seeing your muscle hard and full of blood with veins running just under the surface...

The best way you can tell you had a good workout is if you progressed. Did you do more reps with the same weight? Did you add more weight to certain exercises? When you are answering yes to these questions, then you know you had a good workout.

Latman is spot on...
I normally feel pretty sore after most workouts, but if I don't I donlt worry..
If I have kept my exercise form good and I have progressed in the amount of weight I can handle or increased my reps thats all that counts really.. :)
