    HIIT after Legs

    Does anyone here run (HIIT) after a leg day? I was contemplating it but figured it was a very bad idea. Correct assumption?

    Well, today my legs hurt and I would not want to heed their growth with strenous sprints

    Well yesteday I did Squats, Lunges, Calfraises, and deadlift and it was a tough day and today I am feeling the results. I was just unsure if it would be bad for me since there is a considerable amount of soreness

    Overall training volume, and intesnity of the HIIT would come into play as well.
    Complication breeds desperation.
