    Muscle Soreness

    My muscles rarely every get sore/burn the next day after workouts. I can sort of feel a little tension in a few of my muscles the next day, but not always and not very much. I know soreness is not the sign of a good work out, im just wondering if this is normal? I am pushing myself very hard. Im 19, maybe thats why im recovering so quickly? Would you guys recommend I add in a few excercices to each of my routines?

    please post your routines. And the soreness usually doesn't occur as much when the months keep going by and your eating right.

    soreness is not an indicator that your not progressing.So keep things as they are, don't worry about it.

    My routine is a slightly modified WBB1. I have been seeing gains and have gained about 3 lbs in 2 weeks.

    If you're seeing progress, that's all that matters. Just focus on making gains.

    The WBB1 recommends a 3 day split, which is what im using. But I feel I could easily do another full day? How should I do this? What excercises and what day should I do it?

    If you are making progress currently, why change it? More workouts do not necessarily equate more progress...it doesn't work that way. It could even hinder your progress.

    Now that im more used to my routine and closer to maxing out my excercies, im pretty sore now. No complaints though, being sore makes me feel like ive accomplished something. Feels good to be sore once in a while!

    sometimes soreness is a good thing it means you have provided your body with a different stimulus, i think its more of a bad thing if your never sore, you need to change things up and when you do that you will get sore most of the time.

    During your workout...lactic acid. After your workout...microscopic tears in your muscle fibers. Some feel it, some don't.

    Again, you shouldn't be basing any progress on whether you become sore or not after a workout.

    He's basing effort, not progress, on muscle soreness.

    I should have made my question more thorough.

    I understand the soreness is caused from lactic acid build up, but I guess I should have asked why is it that some people get it worse than others? And what are some things that can help with DOMS (ex. Eating enough, stretching, message therapy, etc..)?

    stretching definetly helps with soreness at least for me. If I don't stretch my body feel so much worse. I do it after a workout though not before but I'm thinking of doing it before and after.

    Everyone should have some stretching in their routine, the benefits are great.

    If you are refering to soreness after your workout, Scarz just told you it is not because of this.

    Like some of the others have said, if you gained three pounds in a week or two, you are doing fine. Don't worry about soreness!
    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be a good friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
