So I’ve been lifting weights for quite some time now along with doing keto. I do everything at home with a set of dumbbells (curls, hammer curls/crossbody hammer curls, overhead tri extensions, bent over rows, bench press, flys, etc. etc.) along with squats and other miscellaneous things.
Anyway, I had been lifting the same amount since I started, and decided to increase the weight 2 days ago. I only increased it by 5 lbs per dumbbell, bringing me from 40lbs per arm, to 45 lbs, and holy crap, my triceps are beyond sore, downright swollen/feel like its in permanent flexion.
It’s not an unbearable pain or anything, but tender to the touch and aggravated by extending my arm.
I know the soreness is a normal thing (kinda freaked out at first since I haven’t felt this kind of soreness in a very long time), but today I planned on hitting triceps again. Question is, should I do it even though I’m sore, or hold off a few days?
