Here's my routine

Plyometrics 20 jumping jacks 40 ghost jump ropes (I don't use real rope) 60 jogging steps

I interleave 4 sets of Plyometrics between three sets of weight-training.

Lower calves are still slightly sore after two days (even when I walk I can feel the soreness), but I really want to get up and work out!!!!!!!!

Is it safe for beginner to do so after lot of stretching, or is it better to wait another day?

  • @BackInShapeBuddy Thank God, because I find stretching to be a nuisance, especially when you are amped and ready to go go go!!!!!

Is it safe to do light Plyometrics even though lower calves are sore?

Yes. Since you are having a slight soreness, it is still alright to do plyometrics so long you do not do any sort of heavy calf raises.

  • Nothing heavy of the sort.
