Is it just me, or do other people have legs that are sore 2-3, and even four days after Tabata Squats?

If so, does it get better with time?

I've been doing the WOD since Feb. 03 and Tababta squats leave my legs useless for about 3 days.

I did a Tabata workout last week with squats, pull-ups, push ups, sit ups, back extensions, and running.

I was sore for several days in all areas. It hurt so good!

A few weeks ago, I was doing the Tabata Front Squat WOD with 65 lbs. The "bodybuilders" beside me squating with 185 lbs (with lifting belts & grunts). were looking at me like I was some type of wimp. They have no idea.

Thanks, guys. That makes me feel better. I bogied my first workout as a result of that Tabata Squat. I just couldn't bring myself to do the one legged squats when I was still having trouble walking and getting up from my chair.

With reference to the bodybuilders--what's even funnier is when they have that 185 in a Smith machine (I think that's what they're called--the things where the barbell is on a track). A lot of those guys are really big, too, and you'd think they could lift a lot. Nobody believes me when I tell them I weigh 240. I'm one of the smaller looking guys in my gym.
