Training a Sore Muscle on 5/3/1?


Im doing 531, hit the gym late last night and didnt have time to finish bench assistance (DB Bench) and planned to do it today. However I woke up pretty sore and Im not sure if this is a good idea to DB Press (5x15) a sore muscle.


Forget about it, just wait till next week.


In the book, it's called, I ain't doing shit assistance work.


lol. in general its not good to train a sore muscle righT?


In general, it's better to suck it up and not be a pussy. If I had to skip the gym every time I'm sore, I probably would have been to the gym 4 or 5 times in my life. However, in your case, doing 5/3/1, you got your main lift taken care of, don't worry about it until next week.


Man if only there was a thread... etc etc

And as said, it's in the book.


my title was changed to include '531' but i was just asking again as a general question. but for the 531, yea ill wait till next time.
