    If you are still sore from the prior session then you may want to re-evaluate your training split.

    How frequently are you training the same muscle groups? Anything over 2X/week is too much in my opinion, unless you are training with very low volume/intensity or on a specific protocol that moderates the intensity (like some of the 'squat everyday' programs, etc.).

    Did you just start back or something? If so just ease back into things and you should be fine, no need to lift like you could before.

    You may want to try one of these programs:

    If you are just starting out you can drop the deadlifting (due to safety/recovery), but I would try to keep the other exercises as long as you have basic familiarity/proficiency with them.

    You definitely need to get some structure to your training if you want to make any meaningful progress.

    You may also want to try our supplement ETS. It can make a significant difference in term of reducing DOMS. It is probably the most asked for supplement by our top tier athletes (people like the UFC's Mike Brown).

    Something else you can do is train the sore muscles with a couple of very light, high repetition sets to get some blood in the area and encourage the recovery process.

    I am the same way. I ice my legs regularly or they are always sore. As Chris said ETS from Atlarge is also a great product to alleviate those as well. It's helps me out my beat up legs.
