    Why does it seem like my bicep is the only muscle that doesn't get sore?

    On my back/bicep days I usually push myself to the point of being unable to do anymore bicep exercises so I feel like I'm doing a decent job. But the next day my biceps are hardly sore. I know it's not like if you don't get sore then nothing happened but all my other muscles get sore with even less exercise. My triceps, chest, legs, delts, all get sore but biceps never do.

    Conditioning levels vary between muscles, as does the amount of metabolic acids produced. As long as progression is upwards, the absence of DOMS can be ignored.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Stop doing biceps after your back. Your pre-exhausting your biceps beyond necessary and is causing overtraing of the muscle. Try moving them to a different day (maybe switch your calves from leg day and your biceps from back day), that way you will be able to hit each of those muscles with a greater intensity because they are not exhausted already. And don't do a ton of bicep extercises; 3-4 exercises max and hit them hard.

    Yoy may be overtraining your biceps by training them hard after back. This is one possible reason. Another is you arent allowing yourslef to train your bis hard enough because of the previous back work.

    I train biceps after chest and they are fresh are ready to be trained hard and heavy. Try training biceps on another day. How do you train your biceps? I know most people like to train them with a lot of volume but i find hitting them with 3 exercises, 2-3 sets in each and a rep range of 6-8 is better. Negatives and forced reps are also great for biceps but no too much, its only a small muscle.

    Try hitting the muscles from different angles and also you could improvise with the reps as well, keep the body guessing.

    I can easily make shoulders sore, but my biceps havent been sore in over a year. They used to ache when I first started working out, now they never get DOMS.

    Regardless, DOMS is not an indicator of a good workout. As long as you're progressing in weight/reps then you're fine.

    Shoulders get beaten to death with a lot of exercises (bench press, rows, deadlifts and so on).

    Biceps also go through a lot with all the pulling and pushing.

    One should train them once a week, when very little pushing-pulling movements are involved.
