    Soreness and Training

    Any tips for training sore muscles? Starting Strength says as long as the muscle soreness doesn't restrict movement, you should keep training and your body will adjust. Is this the right mentality?

    I just don't know whether to suck it up and workout anyway or rest the muscles until they aren't sore anymore to work out again. I really don't want to tear or strain any muscles that would set me back months of training.

    Thanks for the help.

    I would agree with the advice from Starting Strength. Try to get in a good warmup of the sore muscles and you should feel much better.

    FYI I am trying to bulk...not sure if that matters or not.

    RedSpikeyThing, you have insane lifts for your bodyweight.

    bulking doesn't mean a whole lot in this context. If you're having problems with recovery you can try a supplement kike ETS from At Large, or generic Microlactin (the primary ingredient in ETS).

    Thanks I wouldn't say they're anywhere near insane....read Chris Rogers' journal and prepare to be humbled!

    Damn light weights and their 'omg, i lift more to my bodyweight'

    it takes a 220 pound lifter to squat 1048 to match jeff lewis's 1200+ @ 512 on the wilkes score.

    Just playing

    OP, light warm up sets will help alot, take it from someone who squat everyday you have to keep muscles moveing to lessen stiffness.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
