When I am coming out of a loaded squat I have what I am going to call a SEVERE shooting, throbbing, pressure, sharp pain that runs throughout the lateral side of each calf. Almost debilitating and all my strength is gone once I engage my muscles out of the squat. The pain then aches and radiates up and down after. I constantly stretch and roll them out and I have noticed huge painful knots when smashing. I have had this issue for 3 days now and literally cant do any training with my legs because of it. I did do a pretty nasty WOD before it started that entailed 60 thrusters at 105#, which is extremely heavy for me and the first time I have ever done that many thrusters at that weight. Could this be what the issue is? I flossed today and did some ice bath/hot tub rotations to refresh the legs but I am still achy and in pain.
You may have over done it with the weight and rep number.
Stop the ice bath

Are you staying on the knots to see change when smashing?
Send time a couple times throughout the day.
Shorter time between sessions will help.
