I always read that soreness just go away with time, but its not the case with me so far. I'm only lifting since 1.5years, I tried alot of programs, and so far I like the push pull idea thats TC talked not long ago. But, one thing never changed, soreness on big compound lift, even on low volume like 5x5
squat = sore quad glutes ass and little abdo
deadlift = sore glutes lower back upper back and little abdo
chins/Pull up/row= sore bicep and lats
wide grip dips and bench press = sore pecs and shoulder, very little triceps
they are my main exercise, I do them at least 1x week each, then a variation,
day 1, squat, dips(before bench because weak) bench and push up
day 2 deadlift, pull-up and rows
day 4 overhead squat, close grip dips, bench and shoulder press
day 5 single leg deadlift, chin up, and rows
I made progress, and still make progress, but I'm very tired of being sore all week long.If I take a 3-4days rest, the soreness will be worst.
right now I'm on the anabolic diet (since 2months), eating 3500-4000 cals a day (6meals), but even when I was eating alot of carbs it was the same, and I find it very strange that I still gain strengh with the AD, I thought I would lose some...
eating more? I can't afford 200$ of food per week, its already around 150 and I'm always broken because of that, I'm a student.
I also tried in the past stretching after working out without sucess.. so I need T-help.
