Default Should i be sore

I recently started a with a program with fewer number of sets and higher weights and i find that i don't feel as sore the next day. I'm wondering if i should feel sore and stiff the next day or is that a indication of over exercising? Mind you, i do notice some stiffness the next day, just not like i'm used to. Am i not doing enough set to get maximum muscle growth.
Thanks in adance!

First, soreness is not necessarily an indication of a good/poor workout.

I find I get sore when I am doing an exercise I've never done or one for a body part with a totally different angle of ROM.

So, I'd guess it's okay that you are not sore.

Depends, as mentioned, on the degree of microtearing damage inflicted during your workout and the degree of cortisol induction (which kickstarts the inflammatory and pain response).

If you are doing fewer sets, but higher resistance (and therefor fewer reps), you probably have a little less loading as well.

Make sure you are really concentrating on each movement and that form isn't being sacrificed by your jump in resistance.

Also, make sure that you're not compromising working certain muscle groups because others are forced to provide ancillary action (I see this all the time in two moves: rear delts and lat pulls).
