If it's just general soreness in the legs/body, that kinda comes up after playing anytime in general, since the body positions you'll be in by playing are probably stressing your body in ways that you aren't usually moving and lead to being sore.
I have elbow pads and its not really soreness I'm feeling, and I'm pretty used to contorting my body around (state qualified wrestler). It's just this pain in my lower 2 ribs that I feel like are bruised
