Odd question, but if I don't get DOMS from a workout, it is a sign to bump up that workout?

Maybe, maybe not. DOMS is not a sign of progress, and shouldn't be interpreted that way.

After a great deal of experience, I use DOMS to tell me how adjusted my body is to the workout I last performed. If I have a lot of DOMS, I was not well adjusted - my next workout should reinforce this adaptation. If I have no DOMS, then I am well adjusted to the last workout - I can keep performing the workout as-is to maintain that level, or step it up to increase adaptation. It might help to talk about specific exercises or weights at this point.

Hope this helps.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

When you wake up in the morning and can't move from a workout you did yesterday.

Thanks! Good posts, here and in the other thread. I won't worry too much about it, and just use it as a guide on how constant I'm training/challenging my muscles.
