Aches and training

I know that aches and painsar ethe norm (nothing too serious - bit stiff etc) but my question is. Is it a bad idea to train whilst still aching a little?

    Do you mean to train the same body parts again or to train in general? If you are doing a split and your still acheing by the next session for that body part I would think perhaps you are not allowing yourself enough of a gap between sessions.

    training the body part that is aching is a bad idea mate, you need rest for that part to grow.

    That ache is DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and unless you are training that muscle directly then go ahead and train. An example of of directly and indirectly is, Barbell rowing, biceps are indirectly worked whereas bicep curls are direct.

    Unless you have bad DOMS in your legs which makes walking hard, and you are wanting to deadlift, give it a bit more time to heal. This goes for any muscle IMO, if the DOMS are so bad, give yourself more rest.

    And on the 2nd day, God created ice, and he said "thou shalt aply this to achy muscles and joints, for pain is no reason to stop training"
