It's been awhile since I've trained, and I just recently joined a gym. After two classes, I was pretty sore, since my body wasn't used to the training anymore. Then a little while ago, I was horseplaying with the girlfriend, and I squatted down. Then, I fell to the floor, and realized that I pulled my damn quad. Fucking weekend warrior syndrome. Anyhow, any tricks or tips on nursing this thing?

Rest, Ice, and elevation are the only tricks I know.

This and any antiinflammatory drug, i.e. asprin or ibuprofen. Up to 8 200 mg doses a day, 2 every 4 hrs. You don't need to take pills if you don't want to, they come in liquid form as well.

if you have a good rehab center a good deep tissue massage, also a foam roller. A good epsom salt bath would be good to.

RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation and is recommended for the immediate treatment of most soft tissue sports injuries.

Thats about it should be fine in a week or two depending.
