I'm not really a "beginner" but I have noticed one thing that I haven't been able to figure out: the day after a workout with leg sets, I'm sort of sore, (like I should be) but the day after the "off" day I'm extremely sore. It's a bit of a problem, as I want to do legs at least twice a week, but the second time I'm still sore from the first.
I don't know the reason, but I'm guessing it's because you kind of, sorta, have to use your legs to walk the next day? My arms, abs, chest are sore the next day, but not the day after that, but obviously I don't walk with my chest or arms.
Anyone else have this feeling? Am I right on why it happens?
