    Say like the next day, after lifting your arm/shoulder is sore? Or you was doing some running and your legs sore?

    Do you go back the next day and do the same shit?

    If you do; are you putting yourself at risk of injury?

    What if you sore but you really wanna do it again?

    It depends on what type of "sore" it is.

    If it's just muscle soreness, I'll go back and hit the weights again, doesn't matter.

    If I feel like I pulled/tore/popped/injured something, I'll avoid any lifts that hit that body part and give it 3-4 days before attempting to use that body part again. If pain persists I give it more time.

    Steve summed that up I guess. My two cents tho: I've read and heard from a bunch of different sources that if you're lifting for hypertrophy, or size, you will have to train muscle groups when they're sore.

    glutamine helps with recovery speed, i take that after every work out and i think it helps a lot with the soreness

    I also take a hot shower after a workout and on off days I take contrast showers (hot, cold, hot, cold, hot cold).

    Epsom salt baths are supposed to be great, but I've never tried one.

    Honestly, one of the best things I feel I do is workout the same muscles the next day for like 20 min. with some exercise bands. It helps speed the healing and IMO makes you a fair deal more ripped/hard too. Get one from K-Mart or where ever.

    They are great on so many levels and you're basically only limited by your imagination. You can do any sport specific movement. You can work any body part. They're portable. The one I have is from K-mart and it also had this little nylon thing on it with a little ball. You can put it in a door on the side, top, or bottom, or around a pole or maybe a heavy table. Combine it with push ups, sit ups, etc. and you have the means to get in a great (emergency) workout anytime. Also builds strength in a different way.

    the only way to get past the soreness is to work through it, otherwise you can be sore for far to long if you just leave it to natural means...

    what do you mean "go back the next day"? are you doing full body workouts..please say you arent.

    if you did chest/back yesterday and are doing arms today then yes go train because your chest and back have nothing to do with training your arms.

    if you trained chest and back and today is your day to train them again and youre still sore then ye go anyway because if thats the case youre probaly new and need to start actually using your muscles, eventually you wont be as sore from training.

    Light workouts 1-3 days after proven to reduce DOMS. I think it has to do with getting blood in and flushing out lactic acid. You can use weights or whatever, but I feel as though for certain purposes, bands go above and beyond. They especially help for quickness and strength throughout a full range of motion with gently constant tension. I do a few sets of 30 reps for speed. I'm all about active recovery as a means to get solid and well toned and defined in a shorter amount of time. Along with that though, I also recommend plenty of stretching.

    2 exercises for each body part, 2 sets of 30 for speed per exercise, with plenty of stretching in-between.

    Try it out, you'd be surprised how that little bit extra adds up.

    do that man.
    hell, i'm sore know. and i worked out pretty damn hard.
    about to do it again. I think it's a matter of your own recovery rate
    and how much you can deal with
    and the type of pain your dealing with.
    if it's like just the soreness from the work out not an issue. warm up stretch and then hit the weights.

    that's sounds like an old work out routine of mine gorilla.
    I would do light weight lifting in the morning and focus on
    skill training for sports.
    then do the heavy lifting.
    and my idea was to loosing the muscles and to flush the lactic acid
    out as a result of the blood flow. And to help the recovery by that
    flow of blood.

    something i did want to add. do work a break in there at some point though.
    I messed around one time and just really over did the curls one time.
    I don't know how many times i curled this damn 35lb dumbbell I had found
    in my bag one day.

    but, my damn arms stayed curled up for like the rest of the week. would have to force my hands down and or use the dumbbell to stretch them out. Shit hurt like hell.
    that's my warning for the day. good lifting.
