On thursday i went to the gym and trained calves for the first time in while (well, i played basketball a bit but in terms of weight training.) Today is sunday and my calves are still very sore. They hurt so much i dont think i can keep both my legs straight when i stand up.
I feel most the pain in my upper calves, right by the back of my knee. The inside part of my calves are also sore. Another thing to mention is that on friday, i had a basketball practice, but i didnt do any of the drills 100%, and i remember being more sore in my hammies then my calves.
Does anyone have any suggestion about what i could do to help the soreness go away? I will probably go back to the gym today and i was thinking about doing 1-2 sets of relatively light calf raises. would this also help?
