Pattern workouts: You can generally do a cardio workout every day and build up your system. Resistance training with weights, a bowflex or machines often work well in cycles. Back & abdomen one day with chest & arms the next. Repeat.You can design your sequence around your personal goals. Soreness is a guide for workouts & you should respect it, but you can push yourself to a pattern just short of making you sore

Yes: It's ok, especially if the soreness is just mild, but you don't want to push too hard and create a new injury. If the soreness is significant, you may want to switch up muscle groups (i.e. work on legs if your arms are sore).
