  3. your main priority should be making sure you add weight every week to the compound excercise for for that day , Example- dips, chins, squats, deads.
    If the weight is not moving up week to week there is a problem,\

    Soreness is definatley not an indicator of growth!!!

  4. correct, soreness is not an indicator, but i love it.

  5. growth comes from the microtearing of muscle fibers partially no? there should be some soreness if one does a effective job...
