I started getting my ass back to the gym and hired a new trainer.
Wednesday was my 1st day with the new trainer and he had me do 20 leg curls (on the machine - weight was set to 70-80lbs) followed by 30 squats. Rest 30 sec then repeat - we did this 3 times.
After the 1st 20 my quads felt like jello, but I pushed though. I felt like my legs would collapse when I was walking around the gym.
The next day there was definite soreness (expected), I'm usually sore the more the 2nd day after a workout, and yesterday was very painful. Going up and down stairs - ouch. I went to the gym yesterday and walked on the treadmill as warm up for 10min and it hurt at 1st but the pain subsided. I did an upperbody workout - mostly seated or laying down.
Last night my quads hurt SOOOO much when I was trying to sleep I simply couldn't. No matter what way I laid it was this deep pain in my muscle (quads), I finally fell asleep.
Today they STILL hurt - sitting here is making a deep pain and walking up or down stairs SUCKS! When I'm standing up it hurts the least.
I haven't worked out those muscle that hard in a long time and now I am paying for it!
How can I make the pain go away????
