    Legs Question

    I just got back from a snowboarding trip I was on for 3 days. The last day my heels and knees were starting to get sore but I thought it was just from all the boarding I was doing. Anyways once I got home I was practically crippled. It's been 2 days since I got home and my heels and knees are still hurting as much as they did as the first day. My question is this:

    I'm currently bulking and legs and back is an intense workout for me. If I stop doing my legs on my legs/back day for say two weeks I'm afraid I'll lose strength and will fall behind. Has anyone had a problem like this before? The rest of my body is fine I was able to do my back and other muscles fine it's just the legs that are killing me. Should I stop leg workouts altogether as to avoid further injury? Like just wait it out until the pain is completely gone?

    2 weeks off won't hurt you. In fact, if it's been awhile since your last week off, you may come back stronger. I would be surprised if you needed to take that much time though.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
