    Does anybody have any tips to help/ get rid of the soreness you get on you'r legs after a heavy leg day? Standing up and taking a few steps is a pain and going up the stairs seems impossible lol

    They will continue to ache if you only do once a week. Now I do squats every 2-3 days. I switch off between front squats and back squats. Adaptive response keeps me from walking like I got a visit from Bubba the previous night.

    My legs stopped getting sore when using ^this^ approach.

    Otherwise, I stretch my upper and lower hamstrings. Lower hamstrings you just have to reach and touch your toes with your back straight in several positions, for upper hamstrings I use a yoga stretch. http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/2497

    do some light cardio, like some walking at a higher-than-usual pace or stationary bike as was advised. For me, soreness is going off at first 2-3 hours of the next day, if i am pretty active and stay on feet.
    Reasoning for that is increased blood flow to your muscles washing away lactic acid which causes soreness, at least afaik.

    Just eat. Serious. Just try having your cheat meal the meal after your leg workout. Or just a huge dinner high protein/carb dinner. Probably considered broscience but I sware it helps.

    Are you running after your workout is over?
    I didn't use to do this, then my workout partner now has me do a run after my leg workout and I feel so much better.
    Good luck.
