I did my chest/shoulders/triceps workout on Monday and man! was I sore the next day. Nothing injured or pulled, just your average DOMS caused by a nice hard workout with heavy weights. I was planning to do my back/biceps today but I've noticed that some of my muscles that I *think* I would use today are still really sore. These include the muscles that are under my arms, wrapping around the side of my rib cage. According to my handy exrx.net muscle diagrams, those look like the lats. But I'm so confused as to how I could have stressed the lats doing push-ups, bench press, shoulder press, upright row, and dips. And they're more armpit-y and side than back muscles, so maybe they're some deeper auxiliary muscle that I don't know about?
My question -- does anyone know what muscles these are? And should I let it stop me from doing my back/biceps work?
