No pain, no gain?!

I’m not sore, have I done enough?

Know that muscle soreness is not a good indicator of a good workout

Usually you will experience muscle soreness when you have taken a bit of time off from resistance training or you are just starting out.

Muscle soreness is caused by micro tears in the muscle fibre, which stimulate pain receptors within the muscle’s connective tissues that cause a sensation of pain.

It is perfectly normal to have a workout and not experience Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.

The goal for muscle growth remains the same. Increase volume over time. A little more each week, more reps or a slight increase in weight.
