A friend and I have recently become more focused on getting bigger, and have made a routine as to help with that. We do a simple 3 day split with 3 sets(last to failure) and 6-8 reps.
My friend feels like sometimes we don’t do enough, mainly because he isn’t very “sore” the next day. Because of this he gets unmotivated and feels like he is wasting his time.
Getting sore has never mattered much to me, but he feels the ideal “getting big workout” should leave your muscles in shambles. I don’t know what to tell him, and I don’t know nearly enough to say we should or shouldn’t be getting sore, so just wanted some advice on the matter.
If we should be getting sore the next day, what could we be doing wrong, and if being sore isn’t a major concern, what can I tell him so that he relaxes on the issue?
