I don't know whats the problem And I'm not injuried or anything , plus I ice my legs a few time in the week so what would you recommend ?
Thank you for writing to us.
I think that you are not eating well. This can be causing you to not recover well and the protein loss from the body is not being replaced. I recommend that you increase the intake of protein to 2 gm per kg of body weight. If you are still tired, there may other factors like inadequate sleep. Please see a Doctor to reach the conclusion. All the best.
Hope this helps you.
