Right now im sure something out there just doesnt want me to progress.. I took a month off because my shoulder was hurting when lifting weights, its perfectly fine now and I done a full week really well, I was pleased with every part of it. Now Ive come to the second week, today is legs day and while walking to get something to drink, down the stairs my shin hurts when i press down, only on my right shin and is doing it everytime I put pressure on it. Now ive had a look around and what i can see its shin splints, but seems to be the muscle not a fracture. What I want to know is should I just knock todays exercises on the head missing legs out for this week. or can i do some? Like miss out squats, and just do romanian deadlifts? And from what I have read to prevent this happening again is to do exercises to strengthen that muscle would be best, Im not sure wether the muscle is small or not..but I can feel it when flexed, although size doesnt mean strength does it? Anyone got any leg exercises that worked well for them to strengthen them?
