Most important thing: are you progressing the weights as time goes by? They say you wont get sore if you increase the working frequency of the targeted muscle. They also say to not judge a workout based on DOMS but the only time personally i am not sore is if i had no energy and had a bad workout. All of my sets are to positive failure (max OT).There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

I'm wondering what's up with that too. Some of my muscles get sore but I can't feel any soreness after doing chest days(I actually miss the feeling). I go til failure on every set and I up my weight max OT style so I'd kinda bums me out. I use to love feeling the "good, you know ya done something" kind of sore on my pecs.

Not sure what you're doing wrong.
If I'm not a little sore or tight 1-2 days after a trip to the gym - I consider it a failed trip.Lifts:
Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
Pull-up: bodyweight x2
"There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."

From my experience, Sometimes if a muscle is not fully healed before you hit it again...it wont usually feel very sore. some people make the mistake of not giving a muscle sufficient recovery before hitting it again. basically if your not allowing the required recovery time, you are just breaking down a muscle that is already broken down from the last workout. hence why it wont feel sore. i know for certain that if you hit your chest on mon and dont hit it till the following mon...it sure as hell will feel sure, if your training right. but everybody is different and some recover faster than others. if i hit my chest on mon, i hit it again on fri...for me, five days is ample recovery time between bodyparts.
How many days between are you guys hitting the same muscle?

When you work your chest on day 2, you are also working your front delts....then your hitting your shoulders again on day 3. so if your doing heavy benching which is a compound movement involving chest, tris and shoulders..then on day 3 your hitting your shoulders again basically. Ive done a 5 on 2 off before and i found that by the thurs i was feeling a little burnt out. but if it works for you, stick with it.

Soreness has no correlation with muscle growth. When you get injured, you also get sore. Does this mean you grew more muscle?
I NEVER EVER EVER get sore unless I start a new exercises, and normally after the second time I do that exercises, the soreness goes away.
If you're weights are increasing and you're growing, don't worry about soreness.

Soreness doesn't necessarily directly correlate to muscle breakdown and muscle growth. It is a common indicator, yes. Obviously most people are sore the day after or not even until two days after their workout. But some people report that they start to not get sore after working out as their bodies become more advanced in training over time. How long that takes to happen depends on the individual. It's pretty odd because I'm starting to experience that now. You start to not feel sore or as sore after a training session and yet you grow. As long as you progress in some way, even if it takes long, and you're getting reasonable sleep and are eating well, don't worry

Not getting sore anymore simply means that you're not getting as much inflammation post-workout anymore. Your body is getting more efficient at clearing out the metabolic waste of training. It's not necessarily bad and it doesn't signify a lack of strength or size gains.
If you really want to feel sore again, try arachidonic acid supplementation.'There is no sin except stupidity." --Oscar Wilde
