I agree. You will feel less sore after you strength train, even if you go lighter.

If it is a ST day, you should go do your ST. You can do exercises that do not involve the sore body parts, e.g. you can do upper body ST if you are sore in your legs. Or you can still do your regular ST workout involving your legs, but if you find that your legs bother you, you can do it lighter. This helps with keeping the ST schedule at least.

I agree to do a warm up........stretching and you should be fine. If I am a little sore I do it anyway......I do just fine........I am sure you will too.

As long as you feel like you aren't going to die, it's ok :)

My workouts I am doing make me pretty sore, I try to push through but if im too sore to continue strength training I will just replace it with an hour or so on the treadmill.

I agree with Jenstress, as long as your pain isn't acute, you should probably be okay to continue. Maybe an extra-long warm-up and cool-down/stretch to assist your muscles, but if it's just some residual soreness, go right ahead and work it today!

I don't think you have to wait until it is gone, if you are moving okay. If I am really sore, I might skip that day, but usually if I am just a little sore, I just get back to it!

I added in a more intense lower body strength training routine on Tuesday, and had planned to do it again today (two days in between). I have been decently sore the last two days, and today I just feel a little sore in my quads. Is it ok do this workout today or should I wait til that soreness is gone?
