Good point there, Chris. I think you get what I meant by soreness. For years now that’s been the main indicator for me personally. I discovered I need a lot of volume (Jay cutler style training) to get any sort of growth since I am so close or perhaps right against my genetic size limit. Been impossibly hard to gain any more weight despite being at 5500 calories a day during my current bulk. But anyway, whenever I do 6-8 reps I don’t ever get sore no matter what. Despite making sure I fail or almost fail at every set. Also I tried about a month of doing such low volume training recently and got no progress at all. So for me personally, higher volume it is as lower volume gets me nowhere.
