I worked out harder then I ussualy do, (and f***in liked it, it was very exhausting thought but after wards it feels nice)
right now my muscles seem kinda sore and (its my first training day of the week, about 2 hours long,) (yesterday)
so now its the next day and I was wondering if it was ok to train with my sore body, I can still do push ups and jump rope)
any science mumbo jumbo or health issues can happen with training with sore body??

The soreness you are feeling is most likely DOMS or delayed onset muscle soreness. DOMS is muscle soreness/stiffness that occurs between 2-48 hours after a high intensity workout. The pain is a normal response to periods of extended and or a dramatic increase in physical exertion. This is a part of the body's adaptation process. During this time the muscles are recovering and building greater strength and endurance.
There are arguments on both sides of the fence. One expert will tell you, you should not train if you are sore as your muscles are recovering. Another expert will tell you training the muscles again will speed recovery by flushing the muscles with blood, which contains nutrients that will help the muscles recover.
The bottom line is you have to do what is best for YOU. As my drill sergeants use to say, "pain is weakness leaving the body."
I find it best to take the middle ground and stick with body-weight exercises (calisthenics). This will help flush your muscles with blood, thus delivering vital nutrients and will not overload your muscles.

Is it just soreness or DOMS?

Kratos, you could always try a bit of lifting and see how it goes. If your muscles aren't giving the same output as usual then give 'em a rest.

From personal experience, when I have sore muscles the day after a workout, getting a good warmup, followed by another solid workout seems to prevent worse soreness the next day.

To elaborate on my rather unhelpful post; do you just feel a little sore when you move or have you got serious pain that prevents you from making certain movements?
If it's the first then working out shouldn't be a problem. I train BJJ 5 days a week and try and get a couple of lifting sessions in too. I find that after day 2-3 I'm always a little sore but it doesn't stop me from training or hinder progress.
Hope that helps.

I'm not sore but yesterday my muscles were very weak. I had trained for four days in a row and I was simply unable to do what everyone else was doing. Thus, no training today. I wonder what the difference is between weakness and soreness?
