Soreness and gains don't correlate very well. However when I am sore, I hope that it represents gains to make it worthwhile!

I never got sore once from Starting Strength or 5/3/1. However, when I was doing 3x15 of like 12 different exercises and not making any progress (luckily i found SS after about 2 months), I was sore all the time.

Well I started a thread a while back talking about how DOMS was greatly diminished the more consistently I worked out. My speculation was that going ~7 days between workouts allowed the muscles to dehydrate and de-swell that then led to DOMS again the next time.

That said, even when I work out consistently I get some soreness, and much more in the largest muscles - ie, legs/back.
