I dont get it.

  1. I dont get it.


    Okay Ive tried teh ectomorph workout for about 3 weeks now..and have not been sore one time....I dont get it. I did some different excercise like I tried 100's on bench and that got me sore....and did some seated shrugs...and that did it...but as far as everything I'm not even sore...for example I did 5x set of 20 on squat of 280....not even sore. I did over 200xreps on bench and not even feeling a thing, I mean damn. Any ideas?


  2. Why are you on a quest to be sore?
    RTR.

  3. Well I figure you get sore..you build muscle...lol I'm never sore...lol I do use Gold Standard Whey Protein..what ya think bout that protein.

  4. i've never picked a workout i saw in a magazine, or online etc. and followed it to the t. i think the best bet is to take parts of it, and tailor it around your goals, around your weaknesses and strong points and create your own modified version of that workout. as far as soreness goes, you won't always get sore. alot of that muscle soreness comes from doing new and different exercises, rep and set combos, and using different training principles. if you don't get sore it doesn't mean you aren't accomplishing anything. train hard while in the gym, assess your workout afterwards, and if you are putting the work in, mission accomplished.

  5. A lack of muscle soreness does not mean you aren't building muscle. In fact, your muscle fibers are constantly being broken down and rebuilt even without weightlifting. Perhaps you are over training or your ROM needs improvement.

    DOMS is not a gauge you want to use to measure a workout's effectiveness. Read this thread: http://www.getbig.com/boards/index.php?topic=106285.0
    RTR.

  7. Ya I a little skeptical of ur ROM if u r doing 5 sets of 20 with 280lbs for squats and are 6'7" 200 pounds.

  8. You want to be sore?

    Train DC style. I guarendamntee you will be sore after the workout.
    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  9. Ya DC will def get u sore. I LOVE the extreme stretching after each exercise. It really helps with soreness. Even use the 1 for quads after spin class, much better.

  10. so long as you're increasing your lifts weekly, you'll grow provided your calories are high enough. how's the weight gain coming? ROM may be an issue as well.

  11. Just STFU and keep adding reps and then wt. to the bar. Make sure you not lowering the wt. too quickly; let your muscles do the work, not gravity. Try not to lock out, keep the stress on the muscle at all times. And maybe hold the contracted postion for a count of 1 or 2 secs. Now get to work you wannabesorecrybaby.
