If I’m really sore, for example, the day after playing a competitive sport, I train anyway.
There’s no skipping training for soreness.
I might (I repeat, might) back off the percentages a little bit, but, typically it’s not necessary.
What is necessary when you’re really sore is extra anti-soreness protocol, or, recovery.
- Double foam rolling
- Extra warmup before sessions
- Plenty of water
- Static stretching at night or after cooled down
- Double mobility work
- Plenty of fish oil, greens, and health fats
- Go to bed early / get lots of hard sleep
Soreness isn’t a reason to stop training.
I’ll stop when I’m dead.
Once you get a good warmup in, you’ll barely notice the soreness at all.
