    Not hurting the next day

    I never hurt anymore the next day form my work out the only thing that ever seems to hurt is my chest from bench pressing and its not like i lift like a pussy or anything curl 45's which is very good for the size of me and always using really challenging weight, if your muscles hurt does it mean your getting a proper work out or is it ok if they dont,

    soreness is not a good indication of a good workout. Don't worry that much. How long have you been doing the current split you are on? How long have you been doing the same exericses?

    I did the same routine, with only a few minor changes, for about 7 months. At the end of it, my gains were getting smaller, and I wasn't feeling it the next day like I did when I started. I recently completely restructued my whole routine. Damn, what a difference. Not only are my gains beginning to shoot up again, but I definitely feel sore the next day. Change your lifts and routine.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    Muscle soreness is FAR from an indicator of hypertrophy or not. Keep progressing, and don't even worry about it.
