if you’re sore on a regular basis it suggests that you’re asking more from your body than it can deliver.
i mean, if you’re getting stronger over time you’re headed in the right direction, but chronic soreness <after the first little while of getting adjusted to new exercises or set/rep parameters> suggests that you’re not conditioned well enough yet to deliver what your program is asking for.
maybe i’m reading a bit too much into it, but it’s important to understand that although this runs contrary to traditional bodybuilding mentality, soreness is not a precusor for growth. you shouldn’t be sore after the first few workouts of a given routine, unless you’re getting back into it from a big lay off/illness.
i’m not saying you should avoid hard work, but i think you catch my drift.
