    Are you training in the 15-30 rep range? Are you going slow enough on the negative? Are you maintaining perfect form?

      I hardly get sore on all of the muscles, I train 4 times a week now DC style. I have another trouble with biceps, my left biceps, the thickness on my right biceps is way better

          That is another thing Willy. A lot of people simply don't have the mind/muscle connection that alot of us have. It's a gift But yes, focus your absolute hardest on every rep. Just by focusing a little more, you can make the workout twice as good. Don't just go through the motions like most people do in the gym. FEEL that muscle group working on each and every rep. The first few reps should be relatively easy, the 10-12th reps should be extremely difficult and the last few should be to where you don't know if you will make them or not and it takes everything out of you just to get them out. I always do partials at the end too, but they don't count in my log book. I can only manage or two until I can not move my biceps at all. Try increasing your reps, as well. I have been working in the 15-30 rep range the past few workouts for biceps and it has been helping. By the way, what exercises are you doing?

            This is true...

            I train this guy at the gym and put him through basically the same regimen as myself.
            And a lot of times, he says "is my form right"...and I'm like yeah it looks perfect as usual. And he says, "but I can't really feel it."

            Teaching mind/muscle connection is not easy...lol It is something you have to find on your own IMO.

                good point. soreness is never a gauge of how taxed/and or worked a muscle group is.

                    My shoulders are sore during the workout to where I cant move my arm anymore but the next day they are fine and its my chest and back that kill me. I dont have that problem with the biceps but I did when the rep range was below 15RP. I just wouldnt feel anything from the workout. Like USMuscle9403 said I would keep it between 15-30 another thing you can do is change the exersizes. I use to do standing alternate db curls, straight bar preachers , and straight bar standing cable curls. With those I wouldnt feel much or increase strenth that much on my biceps except for the cables I always increased on those. So I stayed with the cable curls, changed the preacher to the hammer strength preacher so I can focus more on feeling it on my bicep, and changed the db alternate standing curls to seated curls curling the dbs at the same time to spare oxygen therefore leading to more reps (Silverback mentioned this once).

                      I do something a little different, I actually perform the bilateral Alt. DB Biceps Curls unilaterally. It really helps my concentration as well as strength.

                          I understand what your saying, well kind of, my chest and back are growing well but they still get sore, maybe i should do higher reps and lower the weight with biceps? BTW i'm doing straight bar preacher curls, standing EZ bar wide grip, and the cybex machine curls, for triceps close grip bench on smyth, reverse bench smythe, behnid the neck pullovers its hard to explain but it works well, so what yall are saying is i need to do more reps, 15-30RP?
