It basically said that soreness was an indicator of connective tissue inflammation and not related to muscle tissue inflammation. Bottom line, soreness doesn't mean a muscle isn't recovered and can't perform. It simply means the connective tissue is still recovering.

So, it's ok to train, because a muscle can still benefit from it. With that said, if you are consistently sore on Wednesday from Monday's workout, then it might be beneficial to use more of an HLM approach just to give the joints and connective tissue more recovery time while still working the muscles.

Monday - Heavy
Wednesday - Light
Friday - Moderate
