Squats are… fantastic. They’re painful, motivating and awe-inspiring. Feeling the burn is almost the whole point. Almost.
Because you can’t forget the magical butt-shaping powers of the squat.
Working through a session of intense thigh-burning can make or break my day. Making my way up and down a set of stairs the next day can be opps-I-have-to-take-these-sideways awkward. And I can definitely feel it in my butt.
Not the I’m-totally-doing-this-wrong pain. Not like I’ve done damage. But like there is very definitely some changes afoot. Progress!
It feels great for the first couple of days. Then, another 150 squats or so later, it’s back. But it’s not so quick to leave...
Do you get this too? How do you deal with it? Hot, steamy bath? Warm shower with some decent pressure?
Does anyone else find that they ache for a massage by the end of the week?
