I have just a couple of random things.
First off, when I stretch towards my toes, I never feel it in my hamstrings. In fact I never feel the normal pulling that I get from other stretches. My calves burn, very similar to the burning when you are doing a ton of calf raises. Every other stretch I get the normal pain and feeling of actually stretching something. Wether I am standing, on the ground, middle split, any toe reach just burns my calves. And if I touch my toe and hold it, the burning quickly increases in pain till unbearable. I have developed a type of rythmic bouncing to my toe streches because of it. I am pretty sure this is weird, and bad. Any advice? (Extra weird note, regular calf streches don't bother me, I get a little of the burning pain but it still is like a normal stretch, one I can hold)
Secondly, I always find my legs become more soar and take longer to recover then my arms, abs, back, whatever. My brother says he finds the same thing. Is that normal due to muscle size and daily use, or is there a potential issue in my workout.
Finally, I have read that leg presses are not suppose to go past 90 degrees. I always went deeper. What is best? And thanks for any advice
PS. Lol at a curler in the squat rack today. He was using more hip thrust then bicep to get his bar up.
