    Hey Joe and coaches. I’m on week 9 of anti-flamingo and throughout the program I’ve been dealing with pretty intense muscle fatigue and soreness the day after each leg day. I’d consider myself a intermediate to advance lifter but my style of training prior to joining team Hypertrophy Coach was more “junk” volume based. I’m now hitting PR’s almost weekly on the big lifts and now the incorporated pump work has bought on a whole new gambit of leg fatigue. Quad focus was yesterday morning and I had a hard time sleeping my quads were screaming at me. Water intake is on point, roughly 1.5-2gals a day and food is too.

    I’m thinking of planning rest days following each leg day since it’s starting to effect my push and pull days as well. I’m seeing a slight decline in my output on those days.

    Is there any type of active recovery you could suggest or am I doing something wrong? My thought is my body would have adapted to this style of training by now. Thanks!

    I think it comes down to how high the intensity in these programs is. I truly go to failure every single set, every exercise, every session and no matter how long I’ve been doing it, I’m still sore as hell after leg day, and sometimes can’t do them for another 4-5 days.

    1.5-2 gallons of water is a lot more than what would be considered necessary. I would suggest that you may be creating electrolyte imbalance which would negatively impact your recovery.

    That’s interesting. I’ve never thought of that. It’s more of my routine, I drink a lot of water not by force but just my habit. I’ll have to look into that

    I feel like I’ve never training with this much intensity due to the amount of volume I was doing prior. Realizing now I would save myself for the next set, where these programs allow you to give it all knowing there isn’t another set to do.
