I just did upper body tonight, and also did some body weight squats. It hurt quite a bit though, so I didn't even bother putting the bar on my shoulders.

I was in a lot of pain earlier today though, people kept asking me what happened because I was walking like an old man haha.

Oh well, I'll see how I feel on Thursday. It already feels better tonight.

2 more days until my week off is over. I feel great. No more soreness except for my shoulders.

I've also increase my calories again back to around 3k. I'm down to 192lbs.

I have tons of energy and sleeping better. Hopefully this translates to my lifts on Friday.

Believe it or not the best way to combat soreness is stretching and you guessed it a light workout, lol. When those muscles are rebuilding they will be sore. If you work progressively to get better or look better, you are going to be sore. Callestenics on non lifting days can help and a warm bath with epsom salt will do wonders 2-3 days a week.

Actually, this is a common fallacy. Technically, stretching puts greater strain on muscles and can lead to increased soreness. Research has disproved the thought that stretching makes you less sore. The couple of things that do reduce soreness are active recovery and great nutrition.
