oh to answer your question – i think you should wait until the bruising subsides before smashing there again. bruising is indication of trauma and you don’t want to damage muscles, only reorganize the tissues to be more functional again.
another thing to try besides smashing – try voodoo bands around your quads. start near the knee, wrap until run out of band. do movements. then wrap a little higher, do movements. keep moving up the leg until you get to the hip. this should also hit the IT band and help mobilize those tissues, but potentially help you not get so bruised.
