If you're not used to using all those arm muscles & you start lifting weights, I think it's normal to be sore for several days after. I would just make sure you do several minutes of some good stretching to warm up those tired muscles before you start lifting weights again. Just take it easy at first...listen to what you're body tells you. If it's painful (which is different than sore) when you're lifting weights again, then maybe you just need to reduce the weight or the number of reps you're doing, to allow your muscles enough time to repair/rebuild. I wouldn't skip the workout though...I've found that this actually makes me MORE sore, the longer I wait between workouts. Just modify what you need to modify...but keep at it! Also, make sure you're getting enough protein...this helps to rebuild the muscle tissue you're working so hard on! And don't forget to breath while doing the workout...muscles need oxygen!!
Good luck and I hope you're muscles feel better soon!
Don't expect a good day...make one!
