It's basically proven to do nothing. Your body doesn't absorb free-form glutamine.
To me, soreness just tells me that I'm lifting hard enough. Some of my muscle groups get sore more often; chest is always sore after my chest workout, triceps won't be sore no matter what I do, legs most of the time. As long as it's not unbearable, and you don't start getting hurt/lethargic/sick all the time, you're not overtraining, and should be fine.
I'd like to see you do some cardio after 5 sets of full, heavy squats :P
