Okay to train when still sore?

From personal experience, I find training through soreness a great way for busting platoes. When implemented periodically this really works for shocking the muscles to grow. The key word here is periodically. If you do it too often you don't allow enough time for supercompensation and recovery. For example, once every 4-6 weeks I'll hammer my legs for two days in a row. It is brutal but efficient !

I think it certainly depends on what you consider sore? A muscle does not have to be fully recoved before it can be trained again, in most cases all that does is allow the muscle to adapt and progress slows.. 48 hours is plenty of time for recovery..

The body will adapt to the demands you place on it. If you always give the muscle a ton of time to recover before training it again, that's how much time it will take. If you train it when it's sore, you're basically telling the body to hurry the hell up with the recovery because you're training more often.

Muscle requires less recovery time than the CNS does.

Ok, thanks. I did squats yesterday, so tomorrow, I may do some deads and bench. Then maybe 2-3 days later, I'll do squats again.
