But yeah, when in doubt rest is 99.999999% never a bad thing.
Yep, not sure if I mentioned it in the other post, but a good working-over by a massage therapist was the other turning point for me. Like Shaf says, mobility from hip to toes, fix your form, and rest as needed.
Frankly none of the stuff like TKEs or other "isolate x part of your quad" training did shit for me. But YMMV. Theories abound on this stuff.
