The meteorologist admitted: “Had a really tough week, physically, after our Viennese Waltz.”

The Dancing with the Stars contestant continued: “It’s hard, and my body really is not conditioned to try this yet. 

“So, I had a lot of nerve pain yesterday and the day before. Had a lot of pain in my left leg, and that was kind of a brutal night to get through last night. 

“That’s the first time that physically I felt beat up.”

Sam concluded: “There’s a lot of stretching, a lot of all of that happens.

“But boy, that was a tough night.” 

After the live video ended, he captioned the post: “Oooof. Bad night. Sending love to #florida as #Ian departs! 

“Nerve pain put me in bed last night in my left leg… but hope to be back today!”

Sam updated his followers with another video and shared his remedies to relieve the pain.

He said: “We are going to try to do a bunch of stuff to see if I can stay in the game here. 

“We are going to try physical therapy. We’ve got heat on it, and I’m gonna try to do some cryotherapy on it.”


His dancing partner for season 31 is dancer Cheryl Burke, 31. 

Previously, the former Weather Channel star spoke about his partner while speaking candidly to his fans about his hardships on the competition show.
