Soreness

Should you work out if your still sore when you reach your next phase? Like lets say I do a triple split and on mon I do chest now next week IF im still sore should I workout again? I always hear the work the soreness out but if your muscles are torn why should you damage them further? lol prolly a dorky question but just wondered.

    I think you need to grade the amount of soreness you have.

    If you are just a little sore, only really when you flex the muscle I would train.

    If my muscles hurt to the point that they are uncomfortable while doing warmup movements then I wouldnt train.

    If my muscles hurt while not really doing anything, are sore to the touch I wont train.


    If my chest is sore when I come to my next chest workout I would just do a recovery workout, lighter weights higher reps. The bigger issue though is that I shouldnt be sore a week later, I would really think about what my diet and rest had been like that week.

    Rarely are my muscles sore a week or next training period later but on a couple of occasions I have really kicked my legs and biceps ass and they have been extremely sore and took about a week or week and a half to get back to normal. Just wondered heh thanks.
