Default In Pain, should I continue?

I started the Hip Hop Abs yesterday, did 26 mins of the 30 min cardio workout. Today, as I assumed I would be, I'm sore. My lower and upper back between the shoulders hurts, my arms hurt, butt a little, and abs a little. You're supposed to do the workout every day for the first 6 days (cardio 2 days, then another thing, then cardio 2 days, then another thing, then rest on the 7th day). I'm considering trying to do the workout tonight but with the pain, should I wait? (hurts to roll my shoulders mainly, but my neck's sore too)

If you're really sore, like have to crawl up the stairs backwards, don't have any where near a normal range of motion sore, I would skip it.

Still exercise, go for a walk, get your muscles warmed up and stretched out. It should help with the soreness, then you can attack the video tomorrow!

If you're just a little bit sore, I dont think it would hurt to go ahead and do the video.

Also, if it's your neck that is hurting, you might want to watch your form when you're doing your ab work. If you're doing situps, or whatever this video has you doing (sorry, i'm not familiar with it) make sure you're letting your abs do the work, and not your neck!

Actually you don't lay on the floor at all...it's rather a lot like what that carrot is doing. Though you walk across the room a lot and forward and back, like you're doing dance moves.
