Most likely due to either overuse or lack of stretching; or both. Make sure to perform light stretching before weight lifting or running.

If you have recently engaged in a strenuous activity the muscle may have developed a build up of lactic acid from the the strain. Lactic acid production is a normal body response to an activity that the body is not accustom to purforming on a regular basis. If considering starting an exercise regemen consult your physician.

Most muscle tightness is caused by two things, either that resulting from exercise or from an injury, such as a pulled muscle. Muscle tightness from exercise, such as running or weightlifting, can be alleviated by simple stretches that can be performed before or after exercise on a routine basis. Not stretching can eventually result in serious injury.
