Go to Jail or do this instead

Day off of hard training today. Looking forward to a record setting deadlift workout on Saturday morning at Powerhouse Gym in Tampa.

Now here's an interesting motivational mindset for you.

Imagine you had to go to jail if you skipped your workout to sit on the couch instead. How many workouts do you think you'd miss?

Great Q: I and several others have never gotten a clear answer to this question.... if you worked your muscles really hard for example on Monday, and you are really sore on Tuesday and still sore on Wednesday, do you have to wait until the soreness is completely gone before you can work that same group of muscles?

Answer from me:
Maureen - There is not a clear answer to is an individual situation. First, adjust your program to do less volume so you aren't sore for 3 days. Second, ask yourself this, "Is there something else I can do instead?" If not, then it is a judgement call depending on goals, etc. But at the end of the day, be conservative. No need to risk it.
