    Default Hammy Time

    I was playing with my young boys today after working out and we were playing tag. While running I felt a tightness in my right hamstring and stopped immediately. I felt no pop or sharp pain. However, my hamstring is tight, sore and feels like a cramp when I flex my knee. I am due to squat and DL in 2 days with PR weights. If I still feel this way should I perform only my upper body lift?

    I sneezed a few days ago and pulled a muscle in my glute and hammy. Took two days to get back to squating.

    Do your warmups and see how you feel. Decide accordingly, don't injure yourself but don't nocebo yourself too.

    Historically I tend to suck it up and have made matters worse leading to a partial Achilles rupture and a partial soleus rupture another time. I want to train as I have been making good progress. I just want to be careful not to furthure aggravate the injury. I will test it the warm up sets. I am also concerned about pulling.
