Default Ouch! Leg day... the sequel

Yesterday I did a proper leg workout for the first time in about eight months (due to not being overseas and not having access to a gym with weights). I didn't want to go really heavy because I'm just getting back into it, so I did sets of 20-30 reps with a challenging weight. It totally kicked my butt, and gave my heart a good workout too.

Today, I am re-discovering the forgotten sensations of quads and glutes DOMS. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Careful navigation is required to sit down in the bathroom, and walking down stairs (especially wearing heels) is a real mission!

Oh, that is what I call a good case of the DOMS. Yeah, getting in and out of the restroom can sometimes be a chore if you have what I like to call the grapefruit effect. That's when you have DOMS the size of grapefruits in your glutes. It can be a total chore when sitting anywhere. I know that feeling all to well after blasting the legs a good one. That's totally awesome. I bet those stick around for a nice week or so. That's what happened to me to my first leg workout back into action.

Yeah, the past two weeks, I've gotten self-induced muscular dystrophy -- my legs work most of the time and none of it too comfortably.

I am careful not to wear heels on leg day. It's hard enough walking in high heels in general I couldn't handle them with jello legs. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Nice work, Kungfu Chick! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
<font color="blue">We taped a lot of famous pictures on the locker-room door: Bobby Orr, Potvin, Beliveau, all holding the Stanley Cup. We'd stand back and look at them and envision ourselves doing it. I really believe if you visualize yourself doing something, you can make that image come true...I must have rehearsed it ten thousand times. And when it came true it was like an electric jolt went up my spine.</font>
