I used to squat once, sometimes twice a week and I would get DOMs and soreness everytime, in my glutes, quads and other little muscles in those areas, it would hurt to sit and walk...
I have decided to do them everyday, I have also started doing front squats, it is my second week trying them everyday, I am into the 3rd day of this second week, but after yesterdays squats I am not feeling sore, here is my routine:
warm up: - olympic bar only - 2 sets of 15 repetitions - 40kg 5 sets of 10 repetitions - 50kg 3 sets of 8 repetitions - 60kg 3 sets of 8 repetitions
(it takes me a while to warm up)
Main course: - 80kg 1 set 8 repetitions - 100kg 1 set 8 repetitions - 120kg 3 sets 6 repetitions (my maximum is here)
Dessert: - 140kg static hold (above my max) 3 sets of 30 second static holds - attempted squat 5 failed attempts, had to let go of the bar every time - 160kg static hold (above my max) 3 sets of 30 second static holds - attempted squat 3 failed attempts, had to let go of the bar every time
warm down: - same as warm up.
the dessert part is something I have only tried twice...I have found that it has drastically increased my squat strength, my max shifted up by 15kg after only 2 days of trying it, but this is the side.
My question is, Why am I not feeling soreness? before when I only did it once or twice, I would be sore for 3-4 days, now that it is the second week into doing it everyday, I am not getting any soreness anymore, I definitely get tired, my energy is definitely sapped, the day before I just wanted to fall asleep in the gym after it.
I have asked my people to spot me and check my form, they said the form was fine, I go ass to grass, back is straight, feet turned out, proper alignment.
So I am wondering, why I'm not feeling it anymore, I definitely feel a little fatigued the next day but there is no soreness or pain or anything like that...
