ok if your muscles are a little soar from workin out 2 days before, is it alright to stretch and then work out or will it do somethin to the muscles?

When it's sore, your muscles were tore down and now they're rebuilding. Correct me if I'm wrong? Best to let them rest

just keep going. when it starts to hurt, thats when the muscle is building. before it starts to hurt is just ripping them so they can then be built.

My friend worked out really hard with sour biceps(es?) and then he couldn't stretch his arms out.
Accually, it was kind of funny haha

Sour biceps? You tasted them?


Ts, it's called Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

The soreness comes from a thing called "Lactic Acid" which secretes (sp?) after long periods of strenuous activity, which makes the muscles stiff and fatigued

I think if you were to press on, you would not be able to do much, and end up just getting yourself hurt more.

Isnt there a special thread for this kind of thing?

He said 2 days after he worked out he was sore, he's not talking about when he's working out they're sore. Like say you bench press like crazy today, tomorrow you're sore.

Lactic acid is a by-product of anaerobic respiration. This happens when your body can't take in oxygen fast enough due to strenuous activity. I don't think it lingers for that long after though so you probably damaged your muscles slightly. Best to rest I think.

I learned something new, thanks Ziggums!
