    Why not?

    If your arm hurts or something, just take the day off.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    yeah, unless its horribly bruised or something it should be no issue at all. Even if it is all brusied up,I bet it still wouldn't be a problem unless its hurting you and causing your form to suffer.

    it's recommended that you wait an hour before doing heavy work with that arm. thats what my doc said.
