  • Pain in hamstrings due to lazy ass

    Since my last comp I'm struggling to slot back into my groove each time I attempt cardio even though it's flat treadmill & I stretch after I find I am up for the rest of the night with terrible tightness & pain down my right hamstring, calve & tightness in my lower back.
    Fought through the pain this morning again but boy it's annoying. Anyone else have this after comp due to being lazy & not jumping straight back on the cardio?

    Have you tried getting your lower back massaged and realigned? I'd either try a deep massage or visit your chiro? Any time I have those issues now that's what i do, outside of stretching and foam rolling.

      Moneys tight at the mo so have to resort to stretching, it's just getting through the annoying agitation through the day & night, because when I stop cardio it makes it tighter when I go back.
      Will have to suck it up & persevere

        PVC rolling (sub for foam) may help. I've been trying this and OMG...does help some!

        Future has a few vids on using this for a variety of pain sites/issue.

        I think this is genius even more so than foam...painful but priceless!

              I've had similar in the past minus the calf tightness and attributed it to tight IT bands. If you don't already, try some stretches for that.

                Are you certain that this isn't a case of sciatica? Are you sure it's just muscle tightness, or is it possibly lower back pain?

                  Assuming there are no internal issues (i.e. sciatica, misalignment, muscle pull etc) and just tightness, I have found that in addition to foam/pvc rolling, filling a tub with water as hot as you can stand, sitting with your legs straight, and stretching, grabbing your ankles, calves, etc (as far and as low as you can) really helps loosen lower back and hamstrings. I try to do it twice a day, about 10-15 stretches per session, about 20-30 secs each stretch.

                  good luck and hope it gets better...

                        Personally I'd save the hamstring stretching for a bit. If you have a muscle groups that's tight it's probably that way more a reason. More than likely it's a protective mechanism. Try foam rolling your entire lower body then stretching your piriformis and hip flexors. The last thing you want to do is loosen up a muscle group that is protecting against injury.
