    Should you be sore the day after you workout?

    Hey guys,
    I would like to know if being sore the day after you workout means you are training good, training too hard, or if it has nothing to do with it. I am often sore the following day if not 2-3 days after working out and just was wondering if anyone knew if it was a good thing, bad or if it doesnt mean anything. It sounds like a dumb question now that I read it, but I seem to feel like I had a better workout if I am sore the next day.

    It has nothing to do with a good or bad workout. You can punch yourself in the bicep or curl a can 50000 times and be sore, is it a good workout? (you should say "no")

    Overtime, you get pretty conditioned to a training style, and muscle soreness decreases. Thats why some people insist on constantly changing their routines, they think because they aren't sore the next day they did'nt do enough, which I dont feel is the correct way to think about training.

    Just train, progress, and stay injury free.

    Haha! I see your point about punching yourself, but (I would think) soreness from bruising is different than soreness from excersize.
    I think it may just be from being told so much in sports that if you arent hurting the next day, then you didnt go hard enough...
    Thank you for the reply

    Expecting some soreness is not unreasonable. However, basing your training choices on what makes you the most sore might backfire.

    It's normal, and usually occurs for me during the first week of switching to a new routine, or if I'm coming back after a week off or something like that. My body usually gets accustomed to the workout by the 2nd or 3rd week, and I no longer get sore after that.

    Some people think that soreness is an indicator of a good workout, but it is just a myth.
