    DOMS

    if you get doms on a conststant basis does this mean you are pushing yourself harder each time you train? also will it mean hypotrophy will occur? (as long as you have a good about of protein)

    cheers.

    Re: DOMS

    I don't think muscle soreness always means muscle growth
    I think it can also be a sign of overtraining
    Could be wrong though

    Peace!

    Re: DOMS

    you only get DOMS with a new exercise your body isn't used to. so either your diet is ****, your not getting enough rest, your over training or you've started a new routine which you need to get used to?

    and sore muscles doesn't equal good workout, doesn't mean a bad workout either. just remember than pain has no true bearing on progress.

    Re: DOMS

    I wouldn't say you only get DOMS wit a new exercise, i get DOMS almost every time i train, certainly not as bad in my upper body but after legs or back sessions i always have pretty bad DOMS in my lower back from deads or in my quads from squats. And i've been doing both for a long time now, not with a crap diet, getting plenty of rest and not with a new routine.

    is that not just muscle soreness? everyone is a little sore after a workout. DOMS is as the name says 'delayed' so you don't get it till the next day and its far more painful, to the extent where say you trained your legs, you couldn't run the day after.

    Re: DOMS

    I guess, although to be honest i get muscle soreness the next couple of days, some days it's sorer the second day, others it's not as bad. I don't really pay much attention as i just generally live in some degree of pain most of the time so i'm used to it now lol.

    But legs is a totally different kettle of fish to any other part of the body, and it's legs day again tomorrow so that's 2 days of limping until the weekend. Some birthday present for me tomorrow that is

    Re: DOMS

    Wow, this subject is very popular, since I joined (like a week ago) 3 threads have been made about DOMS. DOMS does not mean your growing just like the pump, that doesn't mean your growing. But it helps us pschological feel good that we have worked hard in that workout. I get DOMS really bad! But it doesn't bother me. I once asked John Hodgson who used to train at my gym if DOMS means your growing. He said that he hardly gets sore if not at all, and he kept improving in size and strength. I think it is more prevelant in newbie trainers because there not used to it at all. So if your are new to training, just take it easy man, don't overdo it. Just train hard, and then back off and allow rest and nutrition to take their place.

    Re: DOMS

    No, just means you train them bloody hard or you get a better connection with them than your other muscles. As long as your strength keeps increasing consistently then you're not overtraining. Once you plateau then you'll need to look at your training, diet, rest and hydration and see where you can improve things...

    Re: DOMS

    Every week If you cant get your shirt on and you cant wash your hair a couple of days after the workout then i think you must be overtrained. If it's not like that and its just soreness but you can still physically do stuff then you'll be fine.

    Dude, your not a novice, your still a beginner! Novice is 2-3yrs....


    It probably means your doing the usual beginner thing of too many sets and too many exercises for your chest and triceps and also not training anything else hard enough.
