I usually won't strength train on sore muscles. My run on Friday and lifting on Saturday has me extremely sore today, so I went out and walked 3 miles at a brisk pace with the family. I like to think that it keeps things loosened up. :)

Most recommendations I've seen state that you should wait 24-48 hours before targeting a certain muscle group through strength training. Beyond that, comfort is usually a good gauge.

If it hurts, don't do it. ;)

If you're talking about soreness as opposed to pain, then no. There really shouldn't be a limit. However, the sore muscles can impede performance and range of motion. You just have to use good sense. Most of the time a workout is a great way for me to temporarily alleviate soreness.

is there some kind of limit i need to stick to when exercising sore muscles? i know you should give muscles a day or two to recover but i am not sore when doing daily activities. i can only feel a little soreness when i target that muscle and i have full range of motion. i've had exercise injuries before and i am trying to avoid that.
