Train when you're sore?

How many times has your trainer asked if you're sore after a kick ass workout? I would bet a lot, if not most of the time. My question to them is why? Are they concerned for your health, or are they getting off on the hope and possibility you are and they're the ones responsible. Or maybe they actually think if you're sore they gave you a great workout.

So what if you're sore, what is your trainer advising you to do? Are they suggesting you wait until the soreness goes away before once again training the body part? If this answer is yes, run like hell unless you're too sore because your trainer is a fake. With so many misconceptions and misinformation out there, it's no wonder people can't get in shape.

Admittedly, it can be a bit confusing, especially if you're a fake trainer or the general population who don't really know, meanwhile wondering what the hell to do, or who to believe. But here's the truth, in case I haven't said it before, I'll say it again anyway. Muscle soreness post workout is not an indicator of a good workout, so don't wait until the soreness goes away before training the same body part unless you need a useless excuse, or wanna waste your time.

Here's something that will make your fake trainer disappear in a heartbeat. Every five hours, you can train a sore muscle unless of course you've over trained it to begin with. Yes that's right, your eyes aren't deceiving you. In fact, you can train a sore muscle sooner than five hours depending on how long your training sessions are.

Stay tuned for more truth talking…
