No soreness?

Well, I've been working out for about 2 months now, but almost every time I workout, I'm not sore at all the next day. But when I'm working out I always feel my muscles starting to give out and that's when I tend to stop.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong, if anything?

Thanks.

soreness is usually caused by injury or lactic acid in muscles. There are a few different things it could be. I am thinking you aren't pushing yourself hard enough. Maybe try changing lifting patterns like lifting for strength training instead of high reps. What is your lifting workout like? and your size stats height weight build?

Well I'm 16 years old, about 150 pounds, 6'2", and I'm on a modified Stronglifts 5x5 program which consists of:

Squats
Rotate sets of 5 and 10 until I feel I can't do anymore*

Bench press
*

Overhead lift
*

Butterfly
*

Deadlift
Sets of 5 until I feel I can't do anymore

it seems like its based on reps instead of increasing weight. You could try doing a ladder style set. Like try for ladder of squats (percentages of weight can be adjusted to fit your ability but this gives you a rough idea of what to do)rest between each set (usually as long as it takes my partner to do his set.
25% @ 10 reps (warm up, slow down explode up)
50% @ 10 reps (focus on posture not speed)
75% @ 5 reps (remember slow and smooth)
90% @ 2-3 reps (don't forget to breathe)
**100% @ 1 rep max (once every 3 weeks)**
75% @ 5 reps
50% @ 10 reps
25% @ till burn out

Esentially you are moving up and back down a pyramid or ladder. These I usually only do for major muscle groups workouts like Squats, leg press, bench, iso rows, etc. I lift completely different for supportive/ fast twitch muscles. Remember to alternate workouts every week to keep from hitting a plateau. Change each week from flat bench to incline then to decline, pin press, then dumbell bench, dumbell incline, decline, etc.

I usually don't get sore after doing the same routine, but when I introduce new exercises that hit the muscles differently I'm almost always sore the next day

Alright, thanks a lot Perseus, I'll definitely try that tomorrow.

Yeah dekd that's a good point. Maybe it's been too much routine as well. Thanks.

Soreness is not a good indicator of progress. I've been lifting for years and rarely get sore. As long as your adding weight to the bar and pounds to the scale. The program your doing looks really good, I would'nt change it.
