Rest or not?

Hey guys, just had a good session on friday with a back and arms workout. Now my plan was do Legs and Calves tonight but my forearms are still noticeably sore, even though i will not be using these muscles with any sort of strain would it be wise to have one more rest day?

Thanks guys

Yeah , I think that would be wise to do.

In my opinion , you should never train when feeling sore in any muscles.

You shouldn′t have a problem training legs and calves tonight if your forearms are sore. Let your progress dictate training frequency, not soreness. Soreness is not a recovery indicator. If you train to failure all the time, sometimes you′ll get sore, sometimes you won′t. If you don′t get sore after training a bodypart, it doesn′t mean you can train that bodypart right away again.

But training is systemic for gods sake!!!

I think thats what Mike would have said!!

Yes,training is systematic and the whole body must recover,not just the bodyparts that were trained in the last session.If you go to the gym and train before you have given yourself enough time not only to recover,but more importantly Overcompensate,then you are just spinning your wheels.The workout itself is only a stimulus.If using a split routine,a good rule of thumb is to train every 4-7+ days.Always take a minimum of 3 days off between workouts.
