The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    It doesn't matter if you get sore or not. If you want to be sore you could try adding in some negatives to your routine.

    You don't have to be sore the next day to have worked your muscles... So normally I'd say you have nothing to worry about.

    But, I should ask... are you increasing weight when you can from week to week? How many repetitions/sets are you doing per exercise? As your body gets used to lifting, you'll be sore less and less... But I still get sore after a good workout, and I've been doing the same routine for over half a year. What does your routine look like now? It might be time for a change.

    Just to further what B. said. You say you are going more frequenly now-how many times per week. Could be that you are still tired from your last workout and cant hit the gym with the same intensty as you used to.
    Failure is a privelage reserved for those who do not try hard enough

    I used to work out high-volume and NEVER get sore, I mean never. Now I use a one part per week routine, super high-intensity, and I get sore almost every workout. Really, really sore. So from experience I would say that working out more often keeps you from getting sore. I've read this as well, now I guess I can agree.

    My eyes are really sore from trying to read your post... I mean the grean text on the blue background
    IT IS HARDER TO READ THEN ALL UPPERCASE LETTERS THAT ARE UNDERLINED!

    Seriously though you can grow witth out being sore... but I agree it feels good, try a hard routinue that challenges you with low reps (like the WBB or WBBII rountinue) and then throw in a couple of sets of maximum rep exercies to beyond failure.... should getcha burnin and growin

    It's just your body adapting. Don't worry about it. As long as you keep getting stronger, you'll be fine.
