My adductor muscles in my left leg are pretty inflammed today after yesterdays workout. It does not feel like soreness. More like a deep tissue bruise in that area.

Whatever, I no longer care about injuries. I'll make my legs grow standing on a crutch if I have to.

When it gets better, buy a foam roller and use it. I'm planning my trip to USA, don't make it one of my missions to come over there and foam roll your adductors in a stricly proffessional physioteraphetic way! ! :P I've better things to do, like military pressing cute girls!

But in all seriousness, start doing some mobility work for them at the beginning of a workout and some BW exercises at the end, and foam rolling of course.

I doubt adductors is the real issue here, it is a symtom of something else. Have you had any leg injuries on the same side?

Thanks, sweetpea! I have seen your injury trouble reports in your journal. Nothing is more frustrating than it. Good luck to both of us!

MUAHAHAH! I am sure you would love that!

I have been hearing about that foam roller for a while and procastinated on getting it. You got a link to a good product you like?

You know, the funny thing is that it is usually the right side of my body that gets injuried. Left leg has been pretty good. The other weird thing is that I was pretty sedentary before I did those squats and felt the injury - as you know I was prepping for my qual exam. So it is difficult to figure out how it got injuried - from sitting down for too many hours?!??!?

LOL. Ok man, I will get on that.

Man, I am so sore right now. It is almost the exact feeling I had when I did the 4th horseman. Today when I was doing arms, I could not even curl because more forearms kept crapping. Hopefully my body adapts soon to this split and my DOMS subside. Though the pain is a great feeling, I still need them to subside because they are interfering with my workouts.

My hamstrings or adductor muscles (whatever it is) is still tender. But I was able to do squats today without cramping. So I think it is improving.

I am starting to get back in bodybuilding shape. After a month of this, should be back to my old self in the gym.

YAY! It's always wonderful when one sees hardwork paying off in the gym...and in life!

What do you do for your HIIT? Since my back is all jacked up running has become a bit difficult for me to do. Okay, honestly it hurts AWFUL! I can do the elliptical, but I'm getting super bored w/that. I think I could do HIIT on the elliptical, but might have to cut down the time of the actual intervals b/c if I go too hard it's still painful..for right now. It WILL get better!

Hey, sweetpea!

Here are some of my usual HIIT workouts:

1. Track sprints - I know you said you can't do this, but just listing it. I do this very sparingly. It causes a lot of muscle damage and seems to interfere with my leg workouts. I have also gotten injuried on these several times.
2. Bike and elliptical sprints - I do these most often
3. HIIT variable cardio - I will go to the gym and do 5-10 minutes worth of sprints on a variety of machines, and intersperse sprints with 10-15 minutes low II cardio. I.E. 5 mins sprints stair master, 10 minutes walking, 10 mins sprints elliptical, 10 mins low intensity rowing.
