Probably alarming over nothing, but after Friday’s workout (squats) I immediatly started to have sore legs 1-2 hours after the workout itself, and the soreness has been there the whole Saturday, Sunday and it feels better today, Monday, but it’s still there. Stretching didn’t do much (if anything) for it and I’ve been getting the usual amount of sleep I always get - I work in the evening so I have no alarm clock in the morning, which gives me plenty of sleep hours.
Obviously, this is not the norm to me, with DOMS lasting maybe one day after workout, often I don’t have them. I’m in an upper/lower routine and I just came out of a full body program that had me squat 3 times a week - that’s why it seems weird that a single squat workout would cripple me so much.
I’ve experienced something similar only in one occasion during the last year, and it’s when I worked out while taking ciproxin this summer. That time I had a lingering soreness in my hams that just didn’t improve in any way (sleep, stretching, walking, etc). Wondering if the fact that I’m treating a tooth abscess with amoxicillin might have a similar effect even if this time I can tell the soreness has been improving, just very slowly compared to the usual recovery rate I have.
Forgot to specify, the workout consisted in doing front squats, worked up in triples and hit a single at about 90% of my 1RM, then a 5x5 at about 72% of 1RM. Then high pulls and back extensions, so no crazy volume for legs
