    is it ok to lift when your still semi sore? It's been a day or two now since I lifted. I want to go back in the gym, but im a little sore. I wan't to build muscle quick though, I don't want delays like this to get in my way.

    Just push through it. I'm sore everyday and go back for more. Just keep calling my self a pussy until I'm done with my work out helps when adding more weight then the last work out.. It helps try it.

    work the muscles that aren't sore today, that will give the other ones that are sore, more time to heal.

    Don't work sore muscles, they need time to heal. When they're sore, they're healing - that is when they grow. Work another group (like your legs, since you sound like a frat boy) while they heal. Overworking muscles won't produce results.

    yeah, i think it says that in the program.
    Speed days are good for recovery, as well as building speed.
    there is nothing wrong with working sore body parts, just dont go heavy

    he was a fat powerlifter. Just the honest truth. If there's nothing wrong with being fat, then he shouldn't be ashamed and you shouldn't either.

    More then one day inbetween is too much, especially due to soreness. Soreness is a good sign, you shouldn't ignore it but it shouldn't slow you down either.

    Soreness is the ultimate sign that you are doing things the right way

    That soreness is good because it means your muscle fibers are growing and that's what's causing the pain.

    if this is your first time working out in a while, give it a few days

    the first time i workout after a long break usually takes me a week to recover especially legs and chest

    i take at least a 72 hour break between working the same muscle group twice

    shut the fuck up already :ugh:

    he isnt asking as whether he should be sore or not

    he is asking us whether he can work out again while he is still sore from last time

    And yes,
    he can.

    Waiting one day would have been the same as waiting two.
