Soreness and Vulnerability to Injury


Haven't seen a thread about this so far...

I went a little too hard on squat day a few days back and payed for it with ungodly DOMS -- nothing new here. But I noticed that my legs are a lot more susceptible to little pulls and strains after a really big workout. Anybody else notice that they have to be more careful the more sore they are?


Yes, sometimes my inner/medial hamstrings can get wicked sore after a lay off of any length. I have to take a little more time to recover so I don’t pull them. That’s the only thing that soreness will prevent me from doing.

I also embrace, maybe too well, Jim Wendler’s advice to make sure I’ve recovered between training sessions.
