I am recovering from a strained rectus femorus (upper quad) strain. I am at the point where I can begin exercise after over a month of rest. My body is healing very slowly. I’ve been doing only body weight and barbell squats with no weights and felt pretty good.
Today I added on a 25 on each side then a 45 for the next 2 sets. It felt good. Very little discomfort.
After the workout DOMS started to set in and its pretty sore right now. I wouldn’t say it feels re-pulled but definitely sore and inflamed right now. I iced a few times today and massaged a bit.
My question is whether or not its normal to be sore and inflamed Post WO during the rehab/re-strengthening of a muscle.
