Should You Workout If Your Muscles Are Sore?

December 10, 2012

John Barban answers the question on training if your muscles are sore. The short answer is that “it depends”.

Cliff notes from his post:

  • Range of motion test: If you can’t perform movements with a regular full range of motion, take another day off.
  • Strength test: If you can’t hit your normal rep range for the first set or two of a lift, then wait another day before training.
  • Soreness on a scale of 1-10: You should aim to be at a 4-5 before you train. If you are an 8-10 precieved soreness, then wait a day or two before training.
