    Day After Leg Day - Awesome!

    I've recently noticed that the day after Leg day is my best lifting day. Even as I change up my routine, whatever I'm targeting the next day really seems to have added kick - ie, I can lift significantly higher weight or i'm able to do more reps. What's the science behind this? Is there something going on with working such large muscles that the body produces...? I really think this is more than a coincidence. Any ideas?

    The day after legs for me is off, lol. I cannot even think about working out that day as I am so sore and tired.

    What do you usually work that day?

    I don't know but I've noticed the same thing..I do hiit cardio the day after my leg day (before the soreness kicks in) and I always feel great doing it, which is kinda counterintuitive since I just finished killing my legs the day before. I would guess that it has something to do with the heavy lifting stimulating gh release or something, but I don't really know either.

    i rotate days quite a bit each week but stay pretty consistent about muscle groups per day. today (the day after) was back and abs. i love doing arm day after leg day. i just noticed that i'm able to up the weight and/or reps on most (if not all) exercises and i just feel strong those days despite my lower body being pretty damn sore. there must be a reason.
