My question is:

Should you work out with sore muscles?

Is there any reason not to?

Is it better to wait until the soreness has passed?

Thanks!

Well in this case you should get some rest to prevent injuries listen to your body. Remember rest is a part of fitness

No u shouldnt workout with muscle soreness or technical term for it DOMS delayed onset muscle soreness...recovery time is jus as important as th workout itself if not more not letting ur body rest can lead to overtraining and injury its a common question which really is complicated if u want to knw wats and ifs and why's..workout what group of muscles is not sore...to give ur body th rest it needs..using body splits enables u to workout specific parts of ur body more often while allowing it to receive adequate rest

Thanks! I usually do abs every other day but sometimes they're still sore. Should I rest more in that case?

Hannah is right. If a previous day of workout make you muscle sore you risk to hurt yourself. The rest is important to let yours muscles rebuild.

There is nothing wrong with doing ab workouts if there sore, its common especially if your transforming your abdominals to a 6 or 8 pack. Now if it was your legs and you can barely walk then I would say yeah sometimes a good 3 days to a week off recovery helps. But, its your abs, I would say your doing great no pain, no gain!

Abs r muscles to...they just take more work to show off...research it....get on line and look it up ...go vist a gym and ask for a certified personal trainer make sure they r truly certified! And ask ...thn come to ur own conclusion...thts wat I do opinions r opinions..good medical science is fact till proven otherwise...what I mean by tht is we r always learning new stuff...

General rule for myself: if muscle fatigue and soreness from a previous workout is noticably affecting my performance in a current workout, or even day to day routine, its a good idea to give it a rest. If its a little tender, just dont focus heavily on that muscle. If you have prolonged soreness in any muscle, it might be a good idea to take it easy as well, and above all, listen to your body!
