This is the second time I’ve felt this while doing angled sled leg presses (first time being several months ago). When I was at the bottom of the ROM (knees at chest), I felt a burning tearing/stretching sensation in my right quad between the midpoint of my thigh and knee. This was with very light weight (I was focusing on getting the full ROM).
After this happened, I foam rolled for about 5-10 minutes and went about doing the rest of my workout. When I returned to the leg press, I felt the sensation again, so I ended up not working out my quads.
Anyone have any ideas as to what is happening? In addition to this sensation, I have noticed that the every now and then, the surface of my right thigh feels numb when I rub my hand on it. It isn’t until I start pinching/digging my fingernails into my leg that I can actually feel something. It’s not a constant feeling, however (it comes and goes).
Other than that, I’m walking fine, squatted and did seated leg extensions fine last week, so everything seems okay (except for this weird feeling).
Any theories/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
