Have you been training for a special event and over done it and hurt yourself? Have you stopped working out due to the injury?
If you have recently over worked some part of your body in a workout and you are wondering if you should full stop working out the answer is NO. If you have an injury you should defiantly rest the area that is injured but there is now reason (unless instructed by a doctor) to full stop working out while recovering from an injury. You should remain working the parts of your body that are not injured so that you don't lose all the toning and strength that you have worked so hard for. It has been proven that the injured area will heal quicker if you keep the other parts of your body in shape while the injury is healing. The reason for this is staying in shape helps improve your blood flow. The improved blood flow helps the injured muscle heal faster because the needed nutrients are more readily accessible for that muscle the toxins that are being released in the healing process will be removed more efficiently.
If you have injured yourself don’t let it put all your progress to a screeching halt. Just slow it down a little to give the injury time to heal and keep the rest of the body healthy and strong.
