Daily tip #39| DOMS

You might have seen a very fit and/or strong/bulky guy taking the elevator..


   Now why would he do that when he looks like he could outrun it with stairs? He might have the time to do it, is he lazy? But then if he's lazy, how is he strong/bulky or fit? It might be DOMS (Delayed onset muscular soreness).


  If you work out hard enough, you get micro tears in your muscles which your body then repairs. Delayed onset muscular soreness starts 1-2 days after a workout and can last for a week ( Yep! That truly is no pain no gain.) This delayed muscle soreness is great, it is by far my favourite.  It is a great indicator that you've had an effective workout, you are constantly reminded that your hard work did not go to waste! Delayed onset muscular soreness is also a great reminder that you have to keep feeding your muscles nutrtion, afterall, nutrition is the key to the lock of a great body!


Do not forget to drink a lot of water, not underestimate sleeping properly, stop making common mistakes to become happier!

Dude, I'd like you to do a post on blisters. Since I started running, I'm having huge problems with those.

DOMS are rough, thankfully they go away if you stick to a planned workout.

Pat Hatt said...

The sleeping part can't be said enough, even though 90% of the time I don't do it. But the nights I do, I find my workouts way more effective.

I've never really thought of that, but it makes sense.

Also, it's not really a tip as it is general knowledge. Just an opinion, don't mean to step on toes or anything.

Natural One said...

I've been slacking on the workouts lately

Mochileiro said...

Nice reminder and a great incentive. When i can, I choose the stairs.

Max Power said...

my muscles have been feeling sore lately as i am running harder now that my tenditis has gone away. I'm glad it's a good sign.

aamedor said...

Ive also heard that if you don't rub down major muscles after a workout a build up of acid makes them more sore the next day how true is this?

Technosauce said...

Excellent news, I'll keep this in mind after I lift some weights at the gym.

-E- said...

oh, i always just thought it was a sign that i was out of shape!

Crisalys said...

Oh... that explains a lot.

A Beer for the Shower said...

I do P90x, jiu jitsu, and muay thai kickboxing, so my life is a constant state of DOMS. I can't remember what it's like to not be sore... wouldn't have it any other way.

Rachel {Da Paura ♥} said...

This makes sense! I try not to work out too hard when I do...because I rarely work out! I know my body can handle very little until I build endurance... :)

aLH3x said...

thanks for the tips! :P

convictus said...

I'm not in love with the soreness, but I do love a workout that makes me so tired I just want a nap. Oh exercise coma sleep, I do so miss you. I'm not sure, but I think you only get this from endurance training. I haven't felt it from just lifting or even martial arts classes, but I do get it after a swim workout.

To Tipota said...

I always take the stairs to comfort my self that i did my daily practice..

Kid Shuffle said...

gotta love working out, falling asleep that night, and feeling damn sore the next day. its all worth it though

Ruth said...

I love the burn you feel after doing abdominal exercises, don't ask me why :) The other muscle aches... not so much

DWei said...

1-2 days? More like double that for me.

Lord Phrozen said...

I'm having body pains all over but I don't think it's because of that reason. I think my body is just weak.

Heaven. said...

That explains a lot.

Damon said...

aki! said...

This is so true! I love a good workout that gives me this. I was wincing all last week because I had it from a killer leg workout.

Come At Me Bro said...

I think my body started to adjust and I feel less pain than before. I guess I'm doing it properly then.

I had this few times, but usually soreness come next day after waking up

Dylanthulhu said...

Back when I used to work out a lot I had these pretty much constantly.

A said...

Yeah, the most soreness seems to happen like 2 days after.

Noah Homola said...
