The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    What did you train that is still aching?
    Are you intending to train the same parts again? ( Thinking that would be foolish) So, what are working through if it is still sore when that body part should have rest while you move onto the next.

    Of course what do I know, I am just a food coach

    Defiantley take an extra day off... it will hamper your results if you train instead of taking the time off to recoverr... OVERTRAINING= LOSS OF POTENTIAL MUSLCE

    I think you'll be fine to train upper body. Only you know how you feel though, if you honestly feel like you need another day, then take it

    You are misusing the term "overtraining".

    OP: Did you just start doing squats? Squats are notorious for DOMS. If you're just experiencing muscle soreness, the best thing that you can do is train through it. Try warming up your squats, and it's likely that you'll actually feel less sore after your warm-ups than before. If the warm-ups don't aggravate things, then do your squats as normal. You'll probably stop being quite this sore once you're a couple weeks into your program.

    I agree with Ikcelaks. And sice you're training upper body stuff, I'd just go for it.

    Not only is this erroneous advice (just because you're sore, does NOT mean you're overtraining), do you really want to listen to someone who's username is something that all of us are avoiding at all costs?

    Like mentioned, I also believe you are misusing the term. DOMS is not a sign of overtraining.

    If you have a lower body day and an upper body day, then you'll be fine to do upper body.
