What causes muscle soreness?

In simple terms, muscle soreness is caused by micro-tears of the muscle tissue after a physical activity to which the body has not adapted yet.

Is muscle soreness a sign of a good workout?

You can experience muscle soreness regardless of how much your workout sucks. The main requirement to get sore is to subject your body to a new stimulus. Therefore, you can get sore by doing irrelevant things like masturbating. That’s why muscle soreness cannot be seen as a sign of a good workout. It’s only a sign that you have done something new.

Infrequent training causes soreness too

If you train a muscle group only once a week, you are going to be sore every time. On the other hand, if you train a muscle group more often, soreness will not be as much of an issue. That happens because infrequent training puts you in a state of undertraining and prevents you from improving the recovery capabilities of the muscle groups that you are training.
