Default How to deal with sore legs?

i've playde three straight days of full court basketball, and each day i've played about 5 hours straight.


besides the constant running and gunning, im my team's sole three point shooter. when I shoot threes I put a lot of stress of my knees and lesg to jump high and release a shot.



now my leg muscles are very sore, and my knee tendons feel like they are gonna fall apart.

besides using an exercise bike to loosen up my stiff legs and ice, what else can I do?

Nothing you can do except rest. Or just pull a Wade on the court.

dude, there's not much you can do. Just sit on the couch, watch TV, and eat food. Time is the best medicine

I use them quite a bit. I don't know about ankle injuries, but they definitely help with calf strains and cramps. Without it, there's a 90% chance I'll get a cramp...with it, it's more like 5%. And in both conditions, I stretch out before playing.

Ask the Pistons' conditioning trainer.

Are you sure its the tendons? Try to be a little more specific about what type of movements hurt and where specifically it hurts and what kind of pain it is.

Long socks have nothing to do with ankle injuries. If you have a history of ankle injures and want to prevent further injury get a pair of ankle braces. The lightest, most comfortable and least restrictive I've tried are ASO. (the same ones that Chauncey Billups wears for example).

Just chill for a day or two. Lay around, have a bath, then use ice. Alternate.

My legs are killing me too. I can barely even walk right now. I think I went down too far on my squats, and pulled something.
