202.. Pulled my Quad.

How you ask? Certainly NOT from training. I went to crouch down to pick up something off the effin’ floor!!! Weird thing is,that I can still squat. It hurts when I try to cross my leg or lift it straight up when I’m sitting, I thought I really did myself In yesterday though, the pain was searing and instantly intense. It’s sore today, but not awful. I honestly thought I tore something. I surely was not laughing last night.

Main lift is the squat today:
Warm up- 3×5 @ 65
Actual- 5×65, 5×81, 5×95

Then:
5×10@65

Lying leg curls-5×10@25
Walking lunges-5×10@20

What I do like about this week is that the lower weights allow me to recheck my form. It also allows me to get a good attg squat in, those are harder for me to do at the higher weights, without me feeling like I’m going to fall backwards.

Update: no walking lunges. Damn they hurt with that quad. That really sucks.

Ok, so I will just do 5×20 with my body weight of deep plié squats, on my toes.

  1. ughhh@pulled quad. Gotta love how some “injuries” happen doing simple stuff like bending down to pick something up. Hope it’s feeling better ASAP!
