But going everyday I never get that "aww I can barely lift my arms" sort of day after soreness.

Right now I do 3-4 sets of 8-10 reps of most my routines. Sometimes I can't do the full reps on the last set. Usually a minute to 1.5m between sets. Don't think I could up my weights and keep the same amount of sets/reps.

Suggestions/comments?

You gotta relax dude. I've only been doing the regular gym thing for a few months. I'm trying to do things properly? And learn as much as I can from experienced guys like yourself. Last thing I want to do is injure myself or fuck up or whatever.

Don't like me asking questions? Then don't answer them with smart ass remarks

Chill. Half this thread is FILLED with information, if you scroll back a bit, you're more than likely to find answers.

hey, what brand jeans do you guys with huge legs wear? I'm almost at the point where my legs are too big for my jeans, and I've gone through several this past year.

Are we men with huge legs not meant to wear jeans?

I think you'd receive a better answer if you phrased your question clearer, are you asking about training frequency?

recovery varies from person . I hate taking days off but if I'm really sore or workouts are sucking I will just eat and rest all day. There is no point and doing a shitty work out if u r feeling shitty you will gain more by resting

Topics regarding DOMS and soreness are highly debatable, because there really hasn't been enough scientific research done on it to give a definitive answer. Even if there is, they're likely not generalizable to all lifters, athletes, etc etc.

On a personal level, feeling post-workout muscle soreness DOMS, usually comes from one or a combination of the following:

a)i haven't trained that bodypart/movement for a while
b)i've been working within rep schemes that would cause a ton of muscle breakdown and production of lactic acid
c)i'm not resting enough in b/w sets

That being said, some sort of soreness is unavoidable, but it isn't WRONG to go from workout to workout without being sore.

Soreness isn't necessarily an indication of progress if that was what you were wondering. There are many other ways to keep track of lifting progress, which should be synonymous with your goals. ie. if your goal is to get stronger - lifting heavier weights. if your goal is to get leaner - losing bodyfat.

What does become a problem though, is when you start feeling joint/tendon/sharp nerve pain, which usually indicates more or less that you aren't lifting weights properly, and to make up for lack of proper muscle recruitment, you're using other parts of your body that SHOULDN'T be doing the work.

Again, soreness is still very much in the "grey area" of things, and so everything I've said up to this point is speculative. This is based on what i've experienced and seen, so call it broscience if you will

sorry for the longwinded post, just wanted to clear the air and get it off my chest.

Back in the gym after a month plus layoff. Started with a deadlift workout from 531. I straight up just forgot to try for extra reps on the last set of 5. Gym had a trap deadlift bar so I decided to do my BBB assistance work with it. It really is an interesting movement. Pretty sure I won't be able to move tomorrow morning or the next week but damn it feels good to be back
