"continue schedule with slight soreness?"
#1
I was wondering if on certain days when you get a really good stretch and the soreness continues to the next day, do you keep with your schedule and keep stretching or skip a day? Now I'm not talking intense pain here, just a good slight burn. I know with muscles it's always better to skip a day and let the muscle repair instead of tearing it down before it has a chance to grow. This also leads me to believe the split routine or alternating jelq/stretch days might be better to get full growth out of your routines. Any insight is greatly appreciated,

ps. JAI stretches gave me the best lig burn yet. I've only utilized the conventional up/down/out/rotary stretches and dld blasters so far. Blasters are great but hurt my head too much but those jai's are great, no head pain and a hurtin' lig burn.

You could take a rest day, or if you really wanna work out, I'd say to warm up real thoroughly, and ease into your session slowly.

I generally do go ahead with exercises. I do them with less intensity but rarely skip a day. If ligs are sore work Uli's etc.

I think if it's so sore that you could hardly pull on it, then it's probably best left for some healing time, otherwise with only slight pain I generally shrug it off and keep going with the exercises. Besides it's usually my arms that give way first..

Sorness is expected in many cases and I have always pushed through that realizing it was part of the training. Over time training daily I no longer get soreness as I did in the beginning so I think a tolerance starts to happen after a while. I would continue on unless the soreness you are feeling is really pain.
