    6'5", increased 10 pounds to 210 since I started eating and working out 2 months ago. Goal: Gain muscle mass.

    I've been doing a 3-4x a week full body workout. Just went in for a new program and have planned a 2x Upper 2x Lower body workout a week. After my first workout on new program I'm feeling the soreness like I had when I first started 2 months ago.

    I don't want to delay my program, but should I rest for a couple more days or ignore it and work out?

    if you're stiff or it's painful then don't, if it's light soreness go workout.

    Go, but use lighter weights than you would have otherwise.

    This is why I stopped the full body workout. I found it to be much more enjoyable to pick a group per day, on a 5 day split. I enjoy the soreness, but I enjoy it more when I'm not in agony. I like to hurt the next couple days so I know I did something.
