I strained my glutes last Wednesday. I felt the initial pain during the ride but then it went away. When I tried to go for a ride on Saturday my muscles instantly cramped up and I had to head home. I took Saturday and Sunday off from riding and tried to go out again today but my muscles cramped up when I applied any effort. I've been stretching, applying heat and taking anti-inflamatories. Any other suggestions for recovery? I read that repeating the same movement that caused the strain can cause more damage but the weather's been great and I can't ride!
