Now, i am not sure if this should be posted here, as i have been lifting for quite a number of years (this is my first post too) but i used to do Squats and Deadlift at about the same sort of rate/ numbers. For the last 3 years i have done no Squats, Deadlifts - yes, Lunges - yes but no squats.
I currently Deadlift 150kg for 5 x 5
Last night i decided to give Squatting another crack, i loaded up a feeble 20kg onto the bar and back squatted 1 x 15, 3 x 10, i then did 3 x 10 sumo squat.
Today my legs feel as if they have been battered with a stick!!!
Is this due to my legs not being used to stretching (ie deep squatting) or is this purely because i am doing something different, although i always thought the deadlift and squat were not massively different ?
