    Should I workout legs if still sore from first time squating...

    SO i did my first "real" leg workout yesterday. I did some low weight squats just to get the form down and also some leg presses. My legs aren't super sore but I suspect they will still be a little sore tomorrow... and tomorrow is leg day again

    Soreness isn't really a good indicator...Usually 48 hours is enough rest, however everyone is differently. If its your first week working out legs I'd normally say that you'd need more recovery time, but let your body tell you.

    You can start out tomorrrow, warm up, etc... and if you're not feeling it take another day or two of rest. If you feel good, hit 'em.

    Everyone's different. After my leg days it takes about 36 hrs for it to hit me hard...so the night after the morning I do legs is when it hits me, so it could be you're not feeling it yet either!

    In the 5x5 program you squat three times a week. Even without getting to a point of pure failure at first your legs get use to the poundages. Man up and squat. Warm your legs up even if they're sore and you'll be suprised how little the soreness comes when your legs get warmed up and ready.

    I squat three times a week.
    My legs are fatigued quite a lot.
    And by golly they're looking damn good.

    Contrary to a lot of opinions on this forum, I believe wholeheartedly that when a body part is still sore from the previous session, you haven't recovered. Take the extra time for recovery, your body will thank you. If you're a natural bodybuilder and you're training with enough intensity, two times a week should be maximum for any bodypart.

    Ease into it if you've just started, but busting your ass in the gym even sometimes if you are sore, and eating enough food for recovery will give you the results you want. GL

    ^Have to disagree. I do a full body routine and when I hit weighted dips on Monday (or whenever day 1 falls) my chest gets real sore for 2-4 days. I still come back Wednesday and hit another chest exercise and it actually helps relieve the soreness from Monday.

    Soreness is not an indicator. IMO, soreness just means you're not adapted to the exercise. Some people get sore a lot, some people don't. I don't I added chins to SS 2 weeks ago. First workout I was sore, second time I was a little sore, third time I wasn't at all. And yes, I am increasing reps.
    I move onward, the only direction. Can't be scared to fail in the search of perfection.

    Of course you're relieving the soreness from previous, you've brought blood to the muscle region and it's warm. Really though, are you able to get full benefit from your training when your muscle belly is cramping from lactic acid?

    lactic acid is not the cause of DOMS. read this, it is actually pretty good.

    Good point. The DOMS is a result of muscle damage. As the damage is in the process of repair, you're building muscle. If the damage is still present I can't see how continuing to damage the tissue will give any benefit whatsoever.

    If you're training on an established program, then stay on the program and do work. You're sore because you're not conditioned, and you won't get conditioned by avoiding the work.

    Spend a few extra minutes warming up by doing a few extra light sets before your regularly-scheduled work.

    The way to get past DOMS is to maintain training frequency. Unless you're injured, don't skip training.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon

    i see your point, and i doubt i will change your mind, so really i am just providing a counter. additional work while sore does not seem to slow down the recovery process, and with so many people working out through DOMS with success... then why not? additionally, the period of severe DOMS that a new trainer(or someone that has been off for a long time) is generally pretty short, as the body will adapt quickly. so the reality is that this is a very minor issue, imo.
