  • Most sore you've ever been?...

    What's the sorest you've ever been.

    I've trained calves before (after not training them for months - training for sport that involved minimal calf training with weights) and been unable to stand up w/o agonizing pain for longer than a week.

    Did the same with biceps (twice, I think) where I actually could not straighten my arms. Eating, brushing my teeth, wiping, etc., were nearly impossible...

    I have had several occasions over the years where I took a few weeks off and paid dearly with leg training.

    Just recently I went through this....getting in and out of my truck was a real chore for about 3 days. Seems like my hams get more sore than anything..

      This is funny to me cuz I remember one that takes the cake for me but I don't know if I can explain it.

      I was out of training for about 2 years back in 94 and 95 (don't ask). When I came back in 96, I remember the first chest workout and I still remember the weights and everything. I ate with my wife and my daughter immediately after the session at a Denny's or something right there by the gym and I kept telling my wife that my pecs seemed to really ache for some reason like the pump just wouldn't go away. Later in the meal I reached for something next to me and I noticed that my pecs seemed so tight that they almost couldn't stretch. Before we left the restaurant, I was cramping in my pecs if I didn't keep my arms out to my sides. I couldn't drive because as I put my hands on the wheel with my arms in front of me, my pecs would cramp up. I called into work for 2 days because I was basically incapacitated after waking up the next morning.

      I did the Tom Platz calf workout of 1 set every hour for 12 hours once in high school and didn't go to school for 3 days. My mom was pissed. LOL

        I squatted once as a kid in my cellar, and did 10 reps in pyramid fashion,adding weight each set.

        As the weights got heavier, I decreased reps, until I had made it to a 1 rep max,then I reversed the procedure.
        Probably about 15 sets or so,or more,I can`t remember,but I had a hell of a time going up my cellar stairs into the kitchen.

        Couldn`t walk right for a week!!!!

        Also overdid calves after a layoff, and had to walk around town on my tip toes for hours before my calves loosened up enough to allow me to put my heels on the ground.

        It felt as if I forced my heels down flat,my calves would rip apart!

          Skip, Good one, in my high volume days chest was my favorite and I would no problem do 20-30 sets for that muscle and always had cramps so bad that could not shower, reach for anything, lift my arms, wash my hair, brush my teeth, even hard to eat, but I loved every minute of it.

          I was to train this model who was to appear in some mags and my mom at that time did her nails and hair for her and she was from NY and she needed someone to train with so my mom said workout with my son, he is a nut. So she told me on the phone how this guy she used to train with had big calves, lol, so I met with her and I proceeded to ruin her idea that training was fun, well after we did maybe 7 exercises she was done, wasted and I said well lets do calves, me being the fool and wanting to show her how big my calves were we proceeded to do 20 sets of calves, Donkeys with 700 lbs, Standing Raises with 650 lbs, Seated Calves with 4, 45s per side and Slanted Raises with 6 plates per side, when we got done I lifted my sweats and she said, "wow those are the biggest calves I have ever seen", lol. I did not go to work for the next three days, I could not even put pressure on them to walk, I had to crawl to the bathroom. But I guess I showed her who had big strong calves, the shit you do when you are horny, glad I ain't young no more, lol...

            Mine may be a little boring, but it seems after a really good leg workout, my quads are like mush. In fact it was today that they felt that way. So much so that the guy at the front desk was laughing at me as I came down the stairs at the gym. I think it was the " weebles wobble, but they don't fall down thing"

              My old workout for legs, used to kill me everytime. I would only train my legs on friday because I needed the sat. and sunday off because I couldn't walk, and had a hell of a time trying to drive a standard car.

              I was doing heavy squats, then move on the heavy leg presses, past failure leg extensions, then move on to leg curls to pre-exhuast my hamstring before doing heavy stiff-legged deadlifts, and then to finish it off one-legged standing curls. The when I was done all that, and almost ready to pass out I would finish off with several sets for calves doing seated raises, standing raises, and leg press raises.

              After that I would stagger to my car, stall the car out several times on my way home, and then just lay on the couch the rest of the weekend.

                  The most sore I've ever been was just a few weeks ago doing pilates. I totally didn't expect it. I'm increasing my weights it seems all the time in the gym, but I am hardly ever that sore. I get sore, but not uncomfortable sore. Anyway, I took up pilates & the next day I felt so incredibly sore. Hurt so bad to move. I walked pretty funny for a couple of days. I'm getting used to it now, it's not so bad anymore.

                    The worst was by far the first time I ever did squats. It was 2 years ago in school the day before christmas vacation. O man I think I was sore until I went back to school lol.

                            Upright rows heavy with a deep stretch made my neck and traps so sore for over a week, couldn't even lift any body part during the entire time, and no one could dare touch the area, plus to make it worse, I had to turn to look at people with what I call the "Batman" look....Thats when you turn your entire body at the waist in sync with your head when you look at someone to talk to them....its a very creepy body movement, and women will tend to run from you.

                            Also, one day I decided to do like 15 sets of very deep standing calf raises...heavy too....My calves were so F***ing big and swollen, I looked like a pro,must have gained like an inch or two in pure inflammation. I couldn't stand or walk, and lied in bed in horrible pain for a week popping Flexeril muscle relaxers to get some relief...what an idiot.

                            By far the dumbest of all my feats in all my years of training was in college when my drunk roomates decided to have a contest to see who could lift the most weight with a "neck exerciser"..you know, one of those headpieces with a chain hanging from it and you can lift the weight front to back or side to side......worst invention ever....anyways, what was I thinking?? What were any of us thinking? We got up to like a 45lb plate for reps, in reality you really shouldn't go heavier then like 10lbs......so we all had to utilize the coveted "Batman" turn for several painful womenless weeks.

                              I've had the calves so sore I couldn't walk. I've had glutes so sore I couldn't sit on the toilet. I've had hams so sore I couldn't bend over AT ALL. I've had... well, the list goes on and on like everyone esles.

                              But the best, in terms of debilitating, was abs.

                              Years ago... After not doing much in the way of ab work for months, TLM and I thought it would be a good idea to start doing abs a few times per week so we started doing that "8-Minute Abs" video (yeah, ha ha, go ahead and make fun). Well, the day after the first time, I swear I couldn't sit up in bed. I would literally have to roll over out of bed on to my feet and then stand up. Sneezing or coughing was pure fucking hell. I swear, I could hardly breath!
