If you hurt that bad then you have to rest to avoid injury

Stretch so you can ease the pain

If your sore I like to work another part of my body. I like to split my training up into 4 parts

Day 1: cardio and core/abs
Day 2: legs
Day 3: upper body
Day 4: rest if needed/yoga/stretching/slow cardio/hiking
Repeat

So there Will be at least 2 days between training the different parts of my body. Remember you get sore because you smashes your muscles doing your workout and the need time to regenerate :)

How much you lift depends on your workout structure. Depending on my structure I usually go with weights where I can do 10-20 reps. Fore some structures you should go to where you can only do 6 reps. I also like to start a little Heavy even if I know I have to lower the weight after the first two sets. I whould rather go a little to Heavy Then a little to light.

If your just starting out dont go lower Then 10-12 reps and make sure your form are correct. Once you know your bodys limitations and how to do the exercises right. You can go really Heavy

Good luck :)

You are clearly new to this. No pain no gain is bullshit. Your body needs to rest. when working out you need to be at your peak, you also need to know how far you can push yourself before you break. Your body tones inbetween workouts. This is why you need rest days...

Also remember warmup and stretch before your workout and cooldown and stretch after your workout. This Will give you better results and reduce soreness
