When I'm really sore from overdoing it, I've found that *light* cardio is the key to recovery. If I'm still sore a couple of days after, a light walk, or even better, yoga, helps reduce the pain and stretch out stiff muscles.

If it's just soreness ---- not an injury ----- stretch and work out and then stretch again. It makes the soreness decrease for me.

If the pain is due to injury, you may want to take it easy. If it's just Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), I would carry on. Often, exercising again makes you feel better.

I work out, I find that it eases the soreness

I would recommend at least a light walk, with a gentle warm-up before hand and long, slow stretches afterward.

For me it depends just how sore I am! If I'm really hurting I rest up, take ibuprofen and soak in some Epsom salt and stretch maybe do light yoga and walk. But if I'm mildly sore cardiovascular workout and you can do weights on a region that isn't sore if possible.

I second the recommendation for cardio, as that tends to help relieve the soreness. If you feel up to it after, you could possibly do some lighter strength training, but rest would probably be good.

Depending on your energy level and what you worked out. I usually do just cardio and avoid strength training until my muscles aren't as sore. Rest is good if you had an intense workout.

I took a pretty intense boot camp type class on Wednesday, and I am still sore from it today (Friday) Should I give myself more rest or carry on?
