    Not getting sore anymore. Good or Bad?

    I have found that I am not sore after working out anymore although I am still seeing strength gains. Does this mean I should change up my workout?

    Current workout (about 6 months in)
    Workout A (2x a week)
    - bench press (barbell)- 5 sets- 8,5,5,5,5
    - incline press (dumbbell) 4 sets- 8,5,5,5
    - cable cross-overs 4 sets- 8,5,5,5
    - weighted dips 5 sets- 8,5,5,5,5
    -shoulder press (barbell) 4 sets- 8,5,5,5
    - tricep extensions (dumbell) 3 sets- 8,5,5

    Workout B (2x a week)
    - Deadlifts 5 sets- 8,5,5,5,5
    -box sqauts 5 sets- 8,5,5,5,5
    -pullups (palms facing eachother)- either weighted (5x5) or 6 sets to 50 reps
    - standing lat row 4 sets- 8,5,5,5
    - incline curls 3 sets-8,5,5

    I am still seeing strength gains but no soreness and i didnt know if i should switch up my lifts, change sets/rep scheme, or stick to it. Any feedback would be appreciated and repped.

    I wouldnt worry if your soreness has gone away as long as you are continuing to make progress and gains in your training.

    If the bar weight is going up then your work out is working.
    To guys starting out - please understand: when you can deadlift 450lb for 10 reps your back, hamstrings & traps will reflect THAT not which program you used to get there. When you can curl 150 for 10, your biceps will reflect THAT, not which program, rep range or method you used to get there. There is no voodoo independent of poundage progression, just faster and slower ways of getting to your next pit stop.

    You answered your own question...

    Not being sore could mean plenty of things, like for example maybe your diet has improved. Does not necessarily mean that you're not benefitting from your training, which clearly you are.

    Soreness doesn't indicate that a workout is or isn't working. It can help you identify proper localization...that's it. I never get sore, never have, I grow just fine.

    This.

    Soreness doesn't indicate that you worked hard the previous day; it means that you were undertrained before. Once your body adapts to the stresses of lifting weights, you rarely get sore anymore.

    Even on days I max out, I don't feel sore the next day. It means nothing.

    soreness certainly does not mean nothing.

    The more conditioned and experienced you become, you may not always feel DOMs or feel it to high degrees of severity. And the occurance is in part related to your volume, rep range, exercise selection, and form as well as your muscle conditioning.

    For instance...

    Ex: Stretch overload will probably induce more soreness than contracted position exercises.

    Ex: Bouncing the weight at the turning point will probably induce more soreness than a smooth transistion

    Ex: Training a muscle group 1x/week will probably induce more soreness than training it 2x/week.
