    if you've been doing the same routine this whole time then that is your problem. if not then you might need to add more weight, lower the rep range, and try some different exercises

    Try going slower and feel the contraction, your possibly lifting to fast. It tends to happen, and try going heavier you should feel it.
    Barbell Bench = 315LBS
    Dumbbell bench = 125LB each
    DEAD = 410LB
    OH BB Shoulder press = 210LBS

    If I was short I'd be huge. Til' then I'll keep pushing.

    i would try to be in the 4-8 rep range per set, where you might be able to do a couple more reps but dont. dont go to failure, but those 4-8 reps shouldnt be easy by any means

    Try doing the same exercises and weights and reps but with a more controlled-explosive movement.
    Hard work pays off you get what you put in.

    You have to gauge yourself. Use a diary or record book. I used to evaluate it by putting an arrow up or down by my reps or sets or weight, etc. This way, I know what I should next time around.

    Also, you don't want your body to plateau. Change it up . . . flys for presses, pulldowns for rows, preachers for concentrations, etc.
    DON'T LOSE WEIGHT . . . LOSE FAT.

    do slow movements and make sure you use the correct FORM if your not then that is one way you know your doin somthing wrong. as for weight stack as much as you can handle without losing form then you should be fine. also if you have just started try being in the 8-12 rep range with 3-4 sets for bigger mass gains.

    If I am lifting consistently, I never get sore

    even my legs during heavy squats never get sore

    Here and there, I will get a ache or pain, but not DOMS

    for me personally, soreness means nothing in terms of progress
