    I just recently joined my school's flag football team just to have a recreational activity in college. I stretch before playing but when I run a post route and pivot, I get a pain in the muscles on top of my thighs. The pain continues for the rest of the day and it feels sore. The next day i can walk fine again but they're still sore until the end of the week.

    By next game time I'm fine until I do that route again. Is it cause my legs are out of shape? Or am I doing something wrong?

    I was thinking about doing some light weight on leg press in the gym before a game. Would that be more beneficial than stretching?

    like i said, don't stretch before

    do some sort of dynamic warmup

    butt kicks, toy soldiers, kareokees, walking lunges, etc

    I have a mobility/dynamic warmup written and broken down with pictures in the F&N File Share
