If it hurts stop doing that!
Sometimes we just don't listen. Our bodies talk to us. I know I ignore mine much of the time. I blame it on the "no pain, no gain" mantra and all those damn comeback kid type movies when the guy with a dislocated shoulder and broken leg still drags his sorry ass back onto the mat down 2 rounds to none and scores the knockout in round three to win it for team USA! If you ever seen "Best of the Best" you know what I'm sayin.
Anyhow onto the silliness. Been doing a bit of higher rep stuff with leg extensions. Still doing compound leg stuff in addition. Had absolutely killer knee pain. Wake you up and not be able to unbend your leg type shit. Kept going though like an idiot. Figured I was just being a pussy. Tough it out. So now I stopped that crap and went back to pure compound lifts and in one week the knee pains are gone completely. Freaking leg extensions. That was it. Anybody else do some stupid exercise just cause it was in the program even though it was doing obvious damage? Just gutting it out?
