Noob soreness and when to get back in the Gym?

Basically I usually do cardio and am trying to lose weight but I hurt my knee pretty bad(adults, Keg and Slip and slide don't mix) and can't do my usually biking/running.



I haven't lifted in years and the last time I did some lifting was about 6 months ago(like a 1 week/quit) and pay the fat tax(gym membership).

So I hit the gym yesterday doing upper body just because I can't do anything else for awhile. I am of course a little bit sore but not too bad(could lift).

I'm afraid to lose momentum like I have done so many times before so..

Should I lift while sore the day after focusing on basically the same muscle group? I can't work legs right now but should feel better in a week or so.

Or take time off risking quitting and getting even fatter ?

I'm no expert, but training the same muscle group back to back (especially when they are sore), isn't the best idea.

Muscles grow when they heal. Without allowing them to heal, you aren't doing yourself any favors.

Give yourself some time between training the same muscle group (not 2 days in a row). Chances are you'll still be sore in a couple of days and can proceed with exercising that same muscle group.

If you trained chest yesterday, hit the back or something you didn't train the day before.

what can you do with your knee? even walking is considered good exercise. or any of the low impact cardio machines at the gym. of course if you feel pain you should stop immediately. do you have access to a pool? you can get a good strength/cardio workout in a pool that shouldn't put pressure on the knee.

any pics or video of the keg slip and slide incident?

I can walk well but trying to keep from stressing it for awhile. That was the advice of my physical therapist best friend. Its just just a pulled muscle in the knee and its been since the 4th but very slowly getting better with stretching.

Wish I had a video but I had to make it less funny by going down and staying down.

Swim. One of the best forms or "cardio" you can do. Plus it strengthens muscles, adds flexibility, and is no impact.

As for hitting muscle groups while sore. Wait 48hrs between sessions.

Set up a workout split however many days you plan on working out in a week.
Example:
Day 1: chest/tris/cardio
Day 2: legs
Day 3: back/bis/cardio
Day 4: shoulders/abs/cardio
Day 5: legs
