I tend to workout about every other day. I get really sore on days that I rest. I take whey protein and do plenty of stretching. I'm hydrated. Thanks?

A good routine is pushes vs pulls. Do push exercises on monday and thurs. Do pull exercises on tues and fri. Rest completely on wed. That should get you on the right track. ...Read more
