Took White Flood Reborn, about a scoop and a half, 45 minutes ago. At the gym, 10 minutes in on the stairmaster, and experiencing a very nice bump.

It's not overwhelming - no jitters - very smooth transition and improved concentration. You might not be getting that "upfront" energy rush that 1,3DMAA gives you, but when you get going in the set, there's like a switch effect that pulls you in, if that makes any sense. I think I like this.

Doing some power movements today.

Default Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II

something strange has been happening with me recently. Whenever I do lunges or explosive high jumps, my groin/upper hamstrings - it's the area that is like not even a muscle, more like the connector/joint area - start to burn and feel like they are going to tear apart. I guess it is cramping up, but I've never had that area cramp up until nowadays, so it is very foreign to me. I have to stop whatever it is I'm doing, and carefully stretch. After, I can't do anything legs, because it will come back and feel like it's going to tear again.

What is going on here.

No idea, but that doesn't sound pleasant one bit. Are you stretching prior to training legs or just stretching when you start to feel that pain? Personally, on leg days, there are only two stretches I actually do. Butterfly and leg swings, and it's about 2 minutes only. I'm no doctor, just what I do on leg days, but you should get it checked at if the pain keeps occurring

Thx bros, I do stretch and foam roll pretty regularly. I am also pretty flexible and drink plenty of water, it's just very weird.

I cover all of those 8 movements all the time. It's like the muscle/tendon that goes from like under the balls/butt/groin. Does that area make sense? It's a really sharp burning pain, and if I don't slowly stretch it out, it makes my legs go numb and I could fall over.

This sounds like it is still somewhat a hamstring issue, just upper in the ischial tuberosity where they basically all connect. I doubt it is a cramp.

Check out this site and see if this sounds like you:

http://www.bowen.asn.au/bowen-therap...berosity-pain/

If so, rest now and hit the Advil and water, it can get brutal if not taken care of. I speak from experience...

CRAP!
Just drink a lot of water and take Advil consistently as directed on the bottle for 3-5 days. If your stomach hurts then stop taking it. It ain't for the pain but for inflammation. Also, and its tough to do in this area, but a massage on the area at least once a day. If its a new issue you can try ice but this is a very difficult area to ice.

Keep from working your legs for 7-10 days and then re-start by only doing stretching for a day or two. Then if pain free after a couple of days after stretching, start with lunges with no weight. Don't make them very deep lunges to start. Take it slow and build up. Progress can possibly be measured in weeks here. It's key to actually warm the muscles up before you stretch them. At least until you are all healed up, but it is still a good idea to get warm before stretching.

An oh, I ain't a Dr., so only take Advil if you have no problems with it. Also, some people react better to Aleve (myself included) instead of Advil. Your call though.
