Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Sure, just use other muscle groups that aren't sore.

haha well my biceps and chest are ridiculously sore (me getting back into it after 6 months of inactivity) I don't think I could do any exercises besides running.

Yeah, lower body, then go back to the upper so you don't lose what you started.

I'm not a professional, so I'm just speaking from anecdotal, personal experience here, but I would wait a little longer than usual to do your next workout. For instance, if you usually work out the same muscle groups every other day, then wait 3 days or so, but don't wait too long, otherwise it will take longer amount of time for your body to readjust. And likewise, don't start again too early because your muscles need to heal.

Also, start out light. Don't max out on weight or reps, and that way you'll be able to transition back into a routine without minimal soreness.

I'm assuming youre sore from your last workout. Rather than jumping right into your routine, wait a couple days, then workout. After that, you shouldn't be sore again and you can start back with your regular routine.

Yes. Working out pumps blood into the muscle and helps remove the waste causing you to be sore.

You should also be doing cardio, which will help with soreness too. In particular, the eliptical for back and arms, and seated bike for legs.

Yup def go easy, but keep working out. You can always focus on other areas.

But doesn't there have to be a waiting period for the muscles to heal? If he just jumps back into it, his muscles might not have recuperated enough, which could extend his soreness for a longer period of time.

If you are working out daily, I would have two to three different routines to choose from. For example mine is:
Mon. and Wed. -- upper body, flexibility and weight lifting
Tues. and Thurs. -- lower body and long distance running
Sat. and Sun. -- swimming or long distance running

This allows your muscles to be worked enough and improve while not overusing or over- stressing them. Really, you shouldn't work out the same muscles back-to-back (even though that is hard). The ware-and-tear can be detrimental.
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Depends.

You probably shouldn't go full bore on the same muscle if you are significantly sore. That said, if you do some light stretching and lift some reasonably light weight, you can get rid of the soreness faster. You get the blood in there, providing nutrients and removing the lactic acid.

Yes. Try to work out each body part once a week. But if you're still store after 7 days, then go again.

^ this

The top exercises in the gym are:

1) Squatz
2) Deadlifts
3) Pullups
4) bench press

Because they are the hardest and use the most muscle groups.

Basically, yes. I'm not sure what you mean by "hardest", but I'm pretty sure we are on the same wave length.

Compound movements will get you bigger and faster then isolation movements. I think there is a caveat with beginner gains.

I would also add the shoulder press (it was one of the staple powerlifter movements), but it can wreck havoc on your rotary cuffs. I've been working through an impingement due to them.

Actually, if you mean something to the effect of the most difficult to get the proper form down by hardest, then we are in complete agreement.
