Crushed my leg workout. Deep form, heavier weights. It was phenomenal. Only problem – I can hardly walk now. I look and feel like a 70 year old man. That’s not good, not good at all. Time to go stretch some more. I may have overdone it.
What have we learned?
- Don’t overdo it
- Even if you overdo it, that’s no excuse not to aid in your own recovery. It sucks, but stretch. Your muscles crave it. Your tendons and ligaments need it. Your body wants to stiffen up to compensate. Don’t let it. If you leave it alone, you’ll regret it.
Long, deep stretches, as often as needed, throughout the day. That’s what I have planned.
