I’ve been lifting for a little over four years now (I’m almost 23) and have reached a point in my lifting where I am sore after every workout. It used to be that I’d only be sore after a layoff, or after trying something new–but now, whether I’m doing a routine I’ve been doing for weeks or one I’m just beginning, I get very sore the following days in the target muscle. Am I right to attribute this to learning “efficiency?” That is, can I say that I’ve learned how to work the muscle so efficiently that I tear new muscle every workout (ie. minimizing the ant. delts and tri’s during incline barbells)?
