Taking anymore than a few days for me off usually results in agony when I go back. I took a little more than 2 weeks off over the holidays. Went in and DL’ed on Thursday, felt strong as hell (Christmas cookies), made some real good pulls and by Thursday evening felt like a cripple. It is now just bearable to get up off the can.
Under regular training circumstances, I have aches and pains literally all the time. It comes with age. I see my kid push it like hell and she is fine the next day, whereas I’m gimping around and bitching about sore legs.[/quote]
Muscle pain or joint pain?[/quote]
Mostly muscular, but I do feel it in my hip joints after a break. Not so much from DL, but I am anticipating some hip pain after squatting on Tuesday.
