I know I'm a month late on this, but in these situations, I would lift again per usual. You are doing different exercises and focusing on different muscles with the alternating workouts. And I'm strictly talking DOMS here. Injury? Pulled Muscles? That's a different ballgame.

I find that a workout sometimes makes me less sore. If you are executing a completely new move in the gym, then it is perfectly normal to sore longer than just 24 hours. It still happens to me with new activities and I have been in the gym for over 25 years. To answer your primary concern, as long as the soreness is not an injury then you won't hurt anything to workout. Do follow the books advice about taking a week off when scheduled, It makes a big difference. Good luck!

I also posted this as a blog but figured this would be a great place to come for some specific advice. I hope this isn't a stupid question. I want to workout but i want to be safe!

I am so sore. Not in pain but definitely have some DOMs goin on. Normally i'm sore the next day but I've been pretty sore for a couple days now.

I am supposed to do a workout for the New Rules of Lifting tonight. Increasing from 2 sets of 12 to 3 sets of 10 with heavier weights. I don't lift on Saturdays or Sundays. I don't know if it would be better to do the workout tonight and just take walks saturday and sunday? or skip tonights workout, take a walk and stretch and do the workout tomorrow? or maybe even keep it light today, tomorrow and sunday then resume my regular workout schedule on Monday?

I don't really want to miss a scheduled workout but I don't want to risk injury. I really do want to lift! I know soreness is normal and everything but I don't know if it is safe to push yourself while sore? I might feel better by tonight but just in case I was hoping some of my awesome spark friends would have some insight or advice!

Life is not about finding yourself, Life is about CREATING yourself.
