I am trying to gauge whether or not I am being a pussy or if I am being smart. So, I thought that I would put the question out to T-Nation. Do you lift when you are extremely sore? I mean when it hurts like hell just to get up out of your chair?
Today my legs feel completely wrecked from a pretty successful squat workout on Tuesday. I have in my near future (3 hours) another grueling workout scheduled. While this workout does not include back squats I do have front squats and power cleans looming ahead. I am very much looking forward to the cleans, I just started them about 3 weeks ago and everytime I finish with them I feel great.
I just came off a recovery week so I should be pretty fresh. Spike seems to help aleviate the soreness, or it just focuses my attention elsewhere. I guess the driving question here is will I be doing myself more harm than good by going in and hitting it hard while I am sore? I dont want to go in a do a half ass workout; I did plenty of that before finding and making this place my home!
Thanks for the replies!
