question about DOM and training

i have searched for an answer already but have found conflicting answers.

On monday i was training - chest/tri. i did dips and my triceps and the muscles in my back are sore - i think this may be because i never kept my head up.

anyway today is back/shoulder/bi day and my triceps are sore when fully stretched, my delts are sore when stretched and my back muscles are sore when kneeded.

do you think its wise to train today today because im thinking;

my military press will hammer my delts and tri
pull ups will hammer my lats

so should i leave it till saturday or work through the pain?

    ok - cheers for the info. didnt know what to think - some things ive read say its ok to work through pain others say it can lead to overtraining.

    cheers!

    Not sure if what you have read (ie working through pain) was related to something slightly different, but you certainly shouldn't be training muscle groups suffering with doms.

    Active recovery is a little different, light, gentle exercise when you're suffering with doms can actually help apparently. But lifting heavy weight with doms.. - defintely not.

    you could do a substitute Leg Day tonight with leg exercises you are sure of. You're probably wise to be sure of deadlift form.. - and yes - good idea to be sure of squatting form too... - although there is plenty of info around on form.. - so maybe you could read up a bit and just have a Squat, Leg Press, Calf Raise session..

    just an thought
