Working out with Sore Muscles
Is it okay to work out muscles that are already sore? I just started P90X this week and Ab Ribber is scheduled a couple days a week. I'm still sore from the first one but didn't want to do more harm than good.

Thanks!

Yes, it's ok to workout with sore muscles. This is part of the process when you first start. You will be very sore your first couple of weeks. Make sure you have a good post workout meal or recovery drink within 30 minutes of your workout. This will help reduce soreness, because your muscles will get protein it needs to start rebuilding. Also, Epson slat baths are a great remedy to get the soreness out.

You can do this!

COACH JEFF IS RIGHT! Plus working out while sore will shorten the length of how long you are sore for.

Feel the burn & learn to love it, Carlie

Yes. But be sure you know the difference between "sore" and "injured". It's fine to work out when you are feeling tender. If it's a shooting pain or severe, then it's time to stop and reassess.

Thanks all! I have no problem working out through the pain. I typically run, bike or use an elliptical every day but didn't want to push the limits. I started P90X to build some strength and tone up...which apparently I need!
