Question: I have developed some real stiffness/soreness in the gluteus maximus area, kind of low back area, and it came on pretty quickly after I started using some new fins. I really don't know if there is any relation. However, I got the fins to be able to use for part of my workout, as reading several sites, recommended the use of fins to work different muscles. So, most of my workout i swim without fins, but about 15 minutes, I use fins.
My question is, has anyone had a similar experience in developing pain in this area after learning to adjust to fins which use different muscles? I"m hoping that is all it is, and it is not a bother when I am swimming.
I feel like I have to stretch that area, but am especially stiff in the a.m. after sleep. I'm hoping I'm not developing hip problems.
Any experience with this?
