i have no history of muscle injuries in more than 10 years of weight training.
Last leg day it seems i tore/strained the rectus femoris near the hip during leg pressing a moderate amount (16 plates @ 10 reps) during my 2nd rep.
ended the workout & waited a week
today was leg day, and I didnt make it to leg presses. during power-squats @ 12 plates the muscle noticably “popped” at my 9th-10th rep…still a warm-up weight.
from what ive seen online, its the rectus femoris near the hip insertion.
doesnt hurt dramatically, but there is minor pain.
Now to the point:
Ive injected near that site, on the side of the leg, and mid-quad on the outer edge, and there still remains an elongated bulge. almost looks like a new muscle.
My question is… is it possible the gear has weakened the tissue?
any possibility of the T400 alcohol content perm-killing tissue in that area?
Of course an MRI would be best…but I dont feel like paying a Dr. $ to tell me “your hurt, dont lift”.
Anyway…any feedback on this long-ass rant?
