i took a much needed week off last week and the week before i skipped my leg workout because i was so busy and legs are basically my strong point right now except for my calves. I went and did my usual below parallel squats, walking db lunges, leg press, leg curls and two calf exercises and i can honestly barely walk. I looked like an idiot waddling around the gym to hit my chest today.
I'm not talking about the extreme soreness for 2 days that usually accompanies a leg workout, oh no baby this is much worse! Im never skipping legs again

i overdid legs last friday, and there still killing me, if you took some time off, you should defently go easy coming back, I wouldent skip legs though, as working legs increases your bodys natural testosterone levels, just take it easy and increase the weight slowly.favorite quote, (Ronnie Coleman) "Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but nobody wanna lift no heavy-ass weight!" Not sure why hes using a double negitive there, I think its cause all the blood in his head rushed into his legs after all those 800 pound squats, lol.
Best possible advice: make the mind-muscle connection.
