    I would stray away from anything like sprint work, as you're going to be a lot tighter than you normally would. At the very least, if you intend to sprint try and stretch in the morning and warmup thoroughly before training.

    Simple cardio without a high intensity shouldn't otherwise pose a problem.

    i skip cardio on leg days because it hurts my recovery. I do a lot of stretching aftwards which seems to help a lot also.

    You can always do something cardio. If you did massacre your legs that day, skip rope, or row, but stay away from hill running or sprint work if it hurts too bad or your performance level is low.

    I did heavy legs yesterday and did a brutal spin class this morning.

    My legs felt like Jello after yesterday and they are just dead this morning.

    Suprinsngly, I also played some bball after spin and was jumping off the roof ???

    I normally don't do spin after heavy leg days but it did not seem to affect my performance
