    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Hamstrings! I curse my hamstrings!

    I have discovered a fascinating new injury.

    A couple of days ago I awoke to find both my hamstrings intensely sore. Hhhhhm. Sore hamstrings, thought I.
    I hadnt been doing any more training than usual or any different exercises.
    I stretched them out and thought nothing of it. But they got worse and worse. They are locked tight and I have difficulty straightening my legs fully.
    Today both knees are hurting like ****.

    I can only surmise that I've twisted something out of alignment somehow and that whatever it is has locked the hammies in spasm and as such is pulling at the patella.

    Any ikdeas? anyone else had this happen?

    Has a hot bath helped with it at all?

    Have you tried stretching things like your IT band, glutes, etc., to see if they also have flexibility problems?

    Does massaging them help at all?

    Does the pain lessen if you take an anti-inflammatory like Advil?

    Try flexing your quadricep for 10 seconds, then try straightening your leg. If you can't straighten your leg, put your ankle next to a tableleg and push into it with your quad. Can you do this? Does it help?

    Can you do warmup exercises at all like hindu squats?

    Hard to say. Could be an over training-related issue. It certainly is possible for tightened muscles to pull the skeletal structure out of alignment.

    Before you go crazy, try a hot bath with epsom salts and gentle massage (of your legs, pervo) while you're in there. Follow up by rolling a can underneath each leg. Then report back, cadet.

    Internal or external?
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Most likely, he's talking about potassium and its role in alleviating cramps. Those are two excellent sources.

    I would recommend seeing a sports doctor just to be safe.

    When in doubt seek a professional. They tend to know better than most forum regulars.

    v-2-1 .. or affirmative . I just couldn't figure out how to spell potassium and was too lazy to google it .

    Been doing straight-legged deadlifts? I tend to do mostly straight legged deadlifts, and sometimes while during the exercise they dont feel particularly strained, the next day they're the most sore of the muscles used in the lift, in my experience.
