Are there any supplements (e.g. test boosters...) that are not a great idea to use habitually because of the health concerns, but that could be used 2-3 weeks a year that would help with recovery in special situations like this.

I know it did wonders for Barry Bonds, but I'm looking for something just a touch less crazy. Preferably something that doesn't require injection.

Repeating again: try citrulline malate. Especially when you're new to those supplements it works crazy well even at lower doses.

I've used Xtend (not to be confused with Extendz) in the past and never got much help from it.

Then it's probably an individual thing. Some are really totally taken aback by the effect of it.
Beta-alanine is another supp that might help but generally I'd not see it as a recovery supp but more as one to help endure higher volume but maybe that is what you are looking for?

Then to take a totally different approach .. if it comes to actually reducing the side-effect of having painful legs:
1 extreme low-carbing always resulted in an absence of DOMS .. however it also makes you slow as molasses when you're not fat -adapted
2 daily massage.. if you don't have access to a massage therapist try to take equipment with you that might do the trick for self-massage.. perhaps even as simple as a tennis ball for the back. Upper legs have the advantage of being able to reach with your thumbs. The place where I apply self-massage most of the time is the groin area which gets quite painful after squat days.
