Be mindful: It depends on how sore they are. If it's mild soreness so that you just notice it, it's not likely a problem. If the soreness is severe, and you are having problems walking, then obviously you should take it easy. Remember you are a minor, so you should be reviewing this with your parents too.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Should you not work out if you are sore from a previous workout?

Some soreness is OK: The body responds to environmental demands by strengthening, but only if it is challanged. A good workout should result in some soreness (within reason) and ideally workouts wil undergo "intervals" of hard and easy day work outs. This is the best way to strenthen your body. Don't be afraid of "soreness". However beware overdoing it. Find a good balance.
