After a vigorous exercise, my quads are extremely sore, causing my legs to buckle when I walk. What steps do I take to heal, and prevent more injury?

And keep exercising those muscles that don't involve the sore ones. ...Read more

Lunges are also great for the quads, as are leg extension machines if you belong to a gym (since the primary role of the quad is to extend your leg). ...Read more
