    Ok here is a question - I have been uping the weight recently when I lift. If you work a muscle and a day or so later it feels taught and you can't fully extend it does that mean I did too many sets or used to much weight? Should I be using any protein drinks after I do strength training to counteract this ect?

    Thanks guys.

    always a protein shake afterwards.also banana's


    ok depends on what type of muscle pull to be honest. I would definetly work on ur flexablity . and it could be just cause u worked a muscle u have worked before. or because u have went up in weight to fast. can u give any more detail of the when and how it happen and also any more side effects

    Hello Friends.........

    Muscle strain or muscle pull or even a muscle tear implies damage to a muscle or its attaching tendons. You can put undue pressure on muscles during the course of normal daily activities, with sudden, quick heavy lifting, during sports, or while performing work tasks.

    Thanks

    In my book, it means you did it right, at least to get strenght increase.

    Right now, I can barely climb down stair, and it tells me my squat workout two days ago was just right : no tendon pain, no localised sharp muscle pain, just muscles who refuse to work and to strech.

    Two day ago, I was feeling the same about my biceps, and was disapointed that my lats where not feeling the same, telling me I need to be more intense working on them next time.

    But, as I'm more an athlete than a bodubuilder, I'm biased toward increasing strenght and power over muscle size.

    If your goal is to get big, you still need by period that kind of intensity, to develop enough strength base on which you can then do more lower intensity muscle grow work.
