Late last week I exhausted my spinae erector and lower traps doing heavy overhead squats and power cleans and woke up Friday morning with that, "OH S***" feeling (anyone else ever experience that before?). My back was destroyed. I've had this before and knew it was only a matter of days before it felt ok, but I have a little extra money and thought I would schedule a massage (which I've never had before). So, today I'm going in for this massage at 3, and I wanna deadlift afterwards but I'm not sure how my muscles are going to respond to the massage... Of course, ideally the massage should be done on an off day, but I've taken the last 3 days off and I have to lift today. Has anyone else ever had to make this decision before? If not, I'll let y'all know how it goes.
