Or maybe they need to change HOW they work out.

Right, but most people are stuck with what they know and are not eager to change. I change weights/reps and switch exercises around. I see people doing the same thing over and over again.

There's also a such thing as switching too often.

Yes, every few weeks I change things a bit. Keeping muscles confused and guessing is better than doing the same thing all the time. Either changing weights/reps, or exercises are all good ways. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty much sore after each workout. Sometimes I have to take 2 days of rest (after DLs or leg days) to be able to workout again.

Keep lifting, and 3 days is not a bad start at all but once your muscles dont get sore anymore I would start going to the gym more often being sore
is honestly a good thing because you know your building muscle and strengthening those muscles you work out, just keep lifting and eat healthy and you will be fine! Good luck

Soreness does not necessarily mean you've had a good or bad workout. As you progress with time, recovery improves. Improvements in muscle function, performance, strength, size, etc. can all be had and micro-tears in muscle fiber can still be present without a full onset of DOMS. Soreness can originate from a lot of different factors and is not a reliable indicator of progression, plain and simple.

I agree with this most candid endorsement.
