You guys think it’s okay or productive to train a sore muscle?

DOMS is not a good indicator of when a muscle is ready to be trained again.

Your best indicator is your CNS.

Training a muscle which is sore if perfectly fine. Adjust training intensity as you feel is needed. You cannot go all out every workout.

I’ve never felt good training a sore muscle. I look at it as feedback from the body that it’s not ready.

Everything I've ever read about it said it was no problem and not an indicator of readiness to be trained again. On most routines where I trained every bp twice or thrice a week this was a necessity, at least in the beginning stages. My strength never suffered but my overall feeling during and after a workout and my pumps took a hit for the worse. Then you have to also factor in that the less often you train a bp, the more sore it gets and the longer it stays sore as well.

In short: the consensus is always that it's just fine, personally I'm still in the middle about this, I honestly don't know how much and if any truth there is to both sides :)

I typically wait until the muscle feels fully recovered. Over the years I've learned to listen to my CNS

IMO training muscles hard that are still sore is a bad idea. I tried it once in college and went on for a month or more like that. I ended up losing strength and didn't put on any muscle. I don't think I lost any though.

I think you can train the muscle but I would use lighter weight/high reps. Do sets of 20 and just try to get blood in there. Don't go to failure. Goal should be to pump lots of fresh blood in there and flush out metabolic waste. It should even help to speed recovery if you do it right.

There was something guys used to call "feeder sets". Youd do those the day after you trained hard. Just a set or two with light weight not done to failure. Pump the muscle up with lots of blood.

I don’t train a muscle if it’s still reasonably sore simply because I don’t feel that I can train it with the intensity that I like train with.

I’m sure there are a dozen different studies that show why you shouldn’t train a sore muscle and another dozen that say it’s fine.
