Does Being Sore = A Good Workout??

Does Being Sore = A Good Workout???

Muscle soreness is caused by microscopic tears in the muscle (not the buildup of lactic acid).
If you don’t feel sore after a workout, it’s either because you didn’t overload your muscles, or because your muscles have acclimated to your workouts.
I will admit, I love being sore. It makes me feel like I worked hard. However, I’ve been to a few relaxing yoga classes and was sore the next day. It’s not because it was a great or hard workout, it’s because I did something different.
Bottom line: muscle soreness is not an indicator of a great workout, muscle growth, or an increased calorie burn.
