I did a killer lower body workout Wednesday and haven't done anymore lower body work (well cardio obviously) but today is leg day, my hamstrings are still hurting really good, so my question is do you still workout even if your chosen muscle group is still sore?

Yes. I'm always sore but I know the diffrence between injury and just being sore. I also know my body well enough to know how much I can push and when to stop. When I first started working out I'd skip if I was sore because I was still getting to know what the diffrent pains meant and I wasn't comfy pushing through and risking injury.

Yes. I actually find that I hurt less when I continue to workout, without taking a day to rest the aching muscles.

Yes, I am sore and I did today again. Sore is alot different then massive pain. I use to work out regularly and I just started a special running program so my hips are getting use to it.

I always still work out, but I may modify.  Be sure to do some good stretching afterward, and try doing different moves, instead of the same ones, even with the same muscle group.

No, better to wait until most of your delayed onset muscle soreness is gone.

usually I opt for an easier work out if I'm still sore.. yoga or going for a walk.. while it isn't as great of a workout its still working out!

 Yes but I soak in Epsom salt the night before it really helps .I am always a 2 day after sore not the next day so I just try to do that about every other day its helped my workouts so much not feeling so sore I cant move
