What’s going on nation? Today I want to answer a question that I get asked all the time Should I work out when I’m sore? Now I actually saw a video on this topic the other day by another Youtuber and it blows my mind the amount of crap That’s out there, so this dude answers the question by BSing for a while And then he throws in some fancy words here and there and everybody believes what he has to say They just eat it up and in the end the stuff He said didn’t make any sense whatsoever or really amount to any conclusion at all and this is what really gets to me nation you need to be able to tell the difference between real-life experience and research knowledge Versus people who know how to bs and babble about a topic for 10 to 15 minutes, but never really give you any concrete information We’re not venting and back to the topic at hand We’re going to talk about DOMS which stands for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness So let’s say you hit the gym ultra hard or come back to exercising after being out of the game for a while and about A day to three days after your workout you start feeling sore now the feeling of pain is what we call DOMS and it is caused by all the Micro tears and inflammation that happens to your muscle tissue as a result of your workout The process of repairing your muscles is what causes them to grow in size and get stronger So this is all normal and a part of the process But should you go back to the gym if your muscle is still sore the answer is it depends on how bad it is If you’re in a lot of pain, and you feel like something is wrong And you think you might have gotten injured obviously you should not go to the gym And you should go see a doctor most of us know our bodies Well enough to know when something is not right, but this is not what I want to focus on today Now if you didn’t hurt yourself but the muscle is very sore to the point that it hurts when you touch it or Causes you not to have full range of motion Then my answer is wait another day to work that muscle group and the key here is the muscle group That is sore. I’m not saying skip the gym I’m saying let the specific muscle recover and focus on another Area for that day for example if my legs are killing me, I still train that day But I’ll adjust my schedule to work something like biceps There’s no need to rush the process nation because if you’re experiencing DOMS and can’t even do full range of motion on your exercises You’re not going to have the most productive work out anyway also If your muscles are working on repairing the tears you inflicted on your previous workout Creating more tears in damage will disrupt the recovery process so bottom line Rest that area a little longer now if you’re feeling reasonably sore but it’s not as drastic as a situation I just talked about it’s actually a good thing to go to the gym and get the sore muscles moving Just take it. Easy on the weights. This is not the time to go hardcore and try to hit a new PR What you want to do is hit some aerobic exercises And do some light lifting activity in this case is good because it increases the temperature in the area which increases oxygen flow and flow of Much-needed nutrients to help heal the damage this flow is also good because it helps take toxins away Which are produced by the tears and subsequent inflammation of your muscle tissue It was a mouthful So no excuses nation even when you’re extremely sore you should still go to the gym It’s just a matter of figuring out how bad it is So you can decide if you can hit that same area or if you have to come up with a plan b to work out Another part of your body now knowing this you might be thinking if I get a workout in but I don’t feel sore Does it mean I’m not going to grow Absolutely not, but I am going to talk about that in more detail another time I hope you guys enjoyed this video be sure to like and subscribe And for more exercises tips routines and recipes be sure to join us on and for those of you who aren’t platinum membership use the promo code freefitness to try it out for one month free What is your maximum output?

  1. Finally a real answer. Im a climber and had my first practice yesterday and im super sore everywhere. I have a day off today and practice tommorow. Everyone just says the part about the tiny tears and that you should just rest. Thanks so much for such an informational video without all the bs.

  2. For my personal experience, I gained an inch in my arms by doing an everyday biceps workout. I trained it on my 70% 1rep max for 10-15 reps for 3 sets of different bicep exercise every day. I felt the soreness on the 3rd day and still doing the same intensity and volume with no decrease in strength and number of reps. I do really gained more than an inch (measured after the swelling gone – not pumped – measured on the 4th day of rest after the 5 consecutive bicep days) I did it for the purpose of experimenting myself.


    I got a right wrist injury and it really hurt so bad and it lasted for 4 months until it's gone and it made me switch from straight barbell bar to an ez-bar. I do continue to do biceps exercise after a week of rest from those 5 consecutive bicep days but only using light weights and ez-bar.

    And to answer this question, training while on DOMS will not stunt the growth and the recovery, but the problem if you do it to the extent that you are going to mess up your joints then indirectly it is a NO NO.

  3. I asked Google this question and started reading and then remembered you existed and stopped myself and came straight here. I love your videos. Always solid straight forward answers. None of the crap. Thanks Scott!

  4. So like will resting cause I’m sore help grow the muscle? Orrrr will it help it grow if i just got work out while sore like usual ?

  5. I only experience DOMS when i haven't worked out for a long time and i hit the weights. Usually it lasts for 3-4 days before i start to get better. For example: i didn't get to workout for two months, so when i went back to the gym and worked on my legs, i was sore for whole week. I know when i hit the gym next week, i will be fine. It shouldn't be this sore again.

  6. My biceps sore but not sore to the touch cause I did a lot of reps with light the last time I did it and they look bigger I guess I grew? Idk tho but I’m doing biceps again but with light weights I’m going easy

  7. The people watching his videos are from all the countries around the world so I guess he should use NATIONS instead of just NATION

  8. The people who disliked your video. are most likely people who don't even work out. I workout even when I'm sore and to be honest it goes away and I feel better instead of me just sitting my ass at home sore.

  9. Your video by far is the most cut to the chase video I have watched. Thank you for breaking it down in dummy version by not throwing in fancy words and making things more complicated than it is. Simple, workout your sore to keep it moving if it's not restricting and or do lighter weights or cardio. Sometimes beginners like myself feels that the sore will not go away for about a week and get lost on what we should do about the soreness, in turn, will rest for too many days. But this makes sense to not use the soreness as an excuse to not workout and definitely know your body

  10. I'm only 13 and did 300 squats this one day and haven't exercised seriously before, so it fucking hurtsssss I thought I was just weak but thanks this really helped me

  11. Believe me after few days it get better you get stronger and if you continue doing weightlifting you won’t feel any pain

  12. I need your help.
    I am a man of 39 yrs old. I used to train lightly but after I trained hard for 2 months (lifting), I became exhausted and got muscle soreness 24/7 up to now even after one month off the gym; and I am still off the gym and I still feel exactly the same! So, what has happened???
    Thank you

  13. I am still soe a week after leg day.. I will try to hit legs again today but not as heavy, hope ill be alright

  14. You got it dude. Being quick, swift, direct and to point with the BS, then explain in detail about the main topic in moderate cruise control. That's the videos I'm looking for. Thanks for the knowledge and advice. Thumbs up. 👍👍

  15. Lol my abs are still hurting after four days, looks like I can’t work them for a while. I really worked them wayyyy too much; probably gotta wait a week or something.

  16. I just started working out you help me out a lot thanks scott 🙌 even though this is back in 2015 it still helped

  17. So I do karate training.. And on Saturday my group and my sensei trained for about 3 hours …I felt fine …then woke up the next day and I have Dom's and it hurts when I touch my muscles …..what should I do ?PS its almost my whole body …shoulders,calves,thighs,back and biseps…also if I go for a light walk with my dog …will it help?

  18. Would be awesome if you could do a video explaining how long we should be working out.. 45 minutes, a hour, two?

  19. Back in high school i used to do extreme endurance trainings for martial arts. Every day i had a specific group of muscle wich caused agonal pain when changing positions. I trained in this state anyways. I could do 6kg dumbbell biceps curls full motion infinitely without stopping (usually between 1000 and 5000 reps, usually not more because its time consuming). Have not gained a pound of muscle tho, i just was extremely ripped. Now, after few years of no training at all i still have hemoglobin levels like professional cyclist.

  20. My core is sore. I did some intense cardio, but I played basketball the day before and it’s sore to the point I can’t laugh or get up from my bed normally. What do I do?

  21. i did 200 sit ups and now every time i move or touch my stomach or chest it feels like sum one punched me LMFAO

    # save me

  22. Even my ass hurts right now, I mean I guess I deserve it because I stopped working out for like a month and I was just eating like Cheetos and shit luckily I didn't really lose any weight
