I've had sore quads for over a week now, and it's unlikely to have a longterm sore quads since it's one of the bigger and more developed muscles... I don't know, I've never had such a long period of sore-ness in my quads before and it's really annoying because I have football practices these days and it hurts SO BAD to sprint and run. I gotta get rid of this quick. Any suggestions?

this works for me - have a nice long shower. have it on hot for about 10 mins or something, do all your washing or whatever then just relax in it. then turn it on cold (As in freezing) for about a minute and focus on the muscle area (especially good if your shower head is detachable) then back to hot for a minute. do this about 3 times (3 cold, 3 hot). its probably kinda unhealthy and risky (hyperthermia), but i havent had any problems so far. stretching for a few minutes a day seems to work pretty well too. sometimes soreness is just unavoidable... but for a week? **** man, only time i think my legs were sore for that long was my first time squatting! if you have a girlfriend get her to massage them for about half an hour, if not go to a massage therapist if you can afford it.hail murder. **** you.

About the glucose thing, usually after you work out your glucose levels are really low so you gotta eat carbs to give you energy after workout to bring glucose levels back to normal. Plus if you eat carbs after workout you don't end up using muscle for energy.
Protein + Carbs after workouts are good.

ahhh to be more specific the carbs you want after a workout arent just any. you need fast acting carbs, such as sugar. i just shove about 8 table spoons of sugar in my post workout shake. this is the only time consuming sugar is any good. then about an hour later have a slower acting protein (chicken, meat, milk, eggs etc.) with a slow digesting carb like brown rice or pasta.hail murder. **** you.

You don't want just any old sugar though, the type of sugar your using called sucrose is part fructose and part glucose. You dont want fructose, which is a type of sugar contained in most fruits, post-workout because unlike glucose which immediately replenishes muscle glycogen fructose replenishes liver glycogen becuase muscle does not have the neccesary enzyme to synthesis fructose into muscle glycogen. The best sources of glucose are Maltodextrin and Dextrose post workout, regular sugar won't cut it !

After you workout, try doing some light streaching and then take a 5 to 10 minute ice bath. There is a new piece of clothing on the market called an ice jacket that powerlifters use after they finish competeing. Its a good alternatitave for an ice bath. You can google this method and see how it works.
Here is a quick article on ice baths:
