Working out through soreness

Recommended Posts

Michael Sahr

I am 53 years old and began doing the gymnastic bodies workouts about a month ago. I recently went water skiing for the first time in years and developed soreness in my left hamstring.  I don’t think I pulled a muscle but I’m not sure. I am continuing to do my workouts through the soreness.  Is this a good idea or should I allow the sore hamstring to fully recover first? Thanks.

Hi Michael, it depends on the nature of the problem:

-if it is soreness or muscles overloading you should not train it because it still needs time to recover;

-if it is a fascial adhesion it should be treated by a PT in order to relax tissues.
