So yesterday on my way to the gym I noticed that my right quad was wicked sore. I’d say an 8 out of 10. I stretched it and rolled it out…but it was killing me. Even worse was that it was leg day, deficit lunges and front squats…ouch. Every rep reminded me of how sore and tight this leg was.
I got through the workout without crying like a little bitch and went home.
For the first time in a while my efforts post workout I believe have actually worked.
I hit it with Ice/Heat/Ice/Heat for about 40min, then hand massaged it (ouch), then put a mechanical massager on it and went to bed with some tiger balm on it and took some advil.
This morning I would say that I am roughly 90% better; one small area of pain…but wow. I did good.
Just wanted to share and to see if anyone has had such a massive turn around from their own efforts and not just ‘waiting it out’.
