As you may or may not know, I have currently cut down my sets and raised my intensity for my workouts suggested by some of the guys on this board.
I am in the middle of week two of this "new" routine and I am loving getting out of the gym an hour early, and am loving the grunting I am now forced to do because I now go to failure pretty much, but I have a question.
Chest day, on Monday, I felt sore. Yesterday was a different story. I blasted my arms, felt great once I got home, arms felt good and all.
Then this morning, unlike when I was working out before, my arms felt pretty much fine. Now I know that soreness doesn't equal muscle, and last night I was feeling sore, but today I woke up and I barely felt like I had worked my bis and tris.
Besides soreness, intensity, etc. what are some keys to knowing that you in fact got a great workout as opposed to just any old workout?
I hope this makes sense...
