    Tension in lower left back, all the way down left leg?






    I was doing leg curls about 2 weeks ago and felt something pull, so I quit training legs for a bit, but now it feels like I have a tightness/tension in my upper butt, and lower back, like my muscles are tearing when I try to do simple exercises like leg press (get like 3/4 the way up on a rep and the stinging is like unbearable)... I cant even workout legs, any ideas?

    Don't do any thing that bothers it, test it with light weight in a couple of days

    Hard to tell but I would recommend some deep tissue work and a trip to a Chiropractor. I've found this has worked for me when I run in to issues that I can't seem to train around.

    Not bad advice. I've been to the doctor for serious muscle strains before. Deep tissue massage, stretching, and simple resistance exercises seem to be the name of the game, but it won't go away quickly and it may not ever go away completely. I still have a tightness in my back from a muscle strain injury years ago, but I can train, I just need to be careful.

    Find a chiro or otherwise that does ultrasound therapy. Nothing like it. And I wouldn't recommend stretching for what you're describing. Foam rolling, massage, ultrasound, etc.
