    Lifting while sore?

    If I am sore at all in a certain body part, say my Tris for example, and my tri day comes up and I am still a little sore should I train them or give them another day to rest. I never know which i should do, i dont want to overtrain them, but sometime parts are still sore when their training day comes up. Which would be the most benificial for stregnth and size gains? To wait or train?
    Thanks

    I would let them rest.
    A little light work would be ok to get blood running through them, it can help them to recover but you should let them heal back up before breaking them down again.
    Cool

    You should not still be sore in a bodypart when its time to train it again. There may be something wrong with your training split or your ability to recover properly. What is your program right now?

    Yeah, what Gopro said!!! I fugured you must be training them more than once a week if they're still sore by the next workout.

    But don't you think a little bit of soreness is okay? I mean, I always a little bit sore, but not like the OMG sore 2-4 days after leg day

    Depends on the methods of training you employed for your last session and the methods you plan to employ for the pending session (i.e. relating to failure training).

    I believe if you're training HST style then there is a chance that a body part is still (a bit) sore when the time to work on it again comes.

    Well I am using this split.
    Mon: Chest/delts/calves
    T: Back/Abs
    Wff(maybe abs, and light cardio)
    Th: Quads/Hams/calves
    Fri: Bis/Tris/Abs
    S:off
    S:off
    My problem is that My tris are sometimes a little sore when my Chest day comes around. and since I am using them to some extent, I was just wondering if it is okay or not.
    Any suggestions would be great.

    Maybe you could try working your chest and back together, and do your first calves session on your cardio day.

    If you want to stick to this type of program you may wish to switch Back to mon and Chest to tues. The biceps recover more quickly than the triceps.

    active recovery principles can be used when lifting sore. but you MUST use less weight (like around 60-70%) than the previous training session for that body part.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    You know your legs will be less sore after cardio because they will be warmed up! And after cardio is a perfect time to stretch those sore muscles!
