So one of the trainer guys at my gym was giving me a body evaluation, and he had me do this squat exercise and then he proceeded to tell me that the muscles in my legs are tight (amoung other muscles). He had me roll my leg over a tube and boy did it hurt! He said that it hurt because my muscle is tight. So I asked him,
"Okay, so I have some tight muscles...So? What does a tight muscle mean? I thought muscle were supposed to be tight?"
He didn't give me a full explination, he just told me having tight muscles were a bad thing.
Okay? Can anyone please tell me what does it mean to have a tight muscle? Any does it hinder a workout in any way? Is a tight muscle the same as a sore muscle (I don't hurt, so I'm confused.)?
