Serratus DOMS after OHP Hamer93 4 4 yearsHamer93 (9553): Thanks for the response, helps with peice of mind! I think it's where I don't normally do heavy OHP so it's new DOMS. We all know when you get a muscle hard that you haven't worked for a while the DOMS is a tad worse

Sore joints Duncan88 13 5 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): Giving advice without knowing any of the specifics is pointless. This guy is just having people flail wildly at random answers. Derp my head hurts wot could it be .
Hamstring Injury?? Hamer93 3 5 yearsHamer93 (9553): Yeah it's hurting to extend my leg, that's why I'm wondering if it's just insanely tight
Best treatment for tight lower back Hamer93 10 5 yearsteewhat (1972): limber 11 for sure has loosend my lower back up just in the last week. lacross ball on glutes, dont forget to do your hip flexors either.
so has anyone figured it out yet? Sedlo18 4 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @Sedlo18 I've also found soreness or DOMS is more common in the lifters in their early career of lifting !! Or even people that aren't hydrated enough. :)
chest day with sore triceps? Yay or neh Sedlo18 2 5 yearsmikew (11493): I know this feeling. You should be good once you get warmed up. I can usually tell the difference between "feeling dead" and just feeling sore. Sounds like you're just a bit sore and not overworked.
Sore chest after back day cassious 9 5 yearsTrev182 (14986): Too much fapping with one arm, learn to use both.
Tight Biceps.... LongBeachPatriot 1 5 yearsLongBeachPatriot (127): I have no clue why but since my workout this morning both of my biceps (mainly my right though) feels so tight that if I stretch em too much theyre going to tear. When I contract them there isnt acute pain, as in a tear but a I feel a lot of tightness and discomfort. Almost like when you have a full pump in your arms except in a bad way lol. I haven't done anything involving arms since Friday when I trained back. I took a rest day on...
Do you get Back doms ? Jigsawk 9 5 yearsHamer93 (9553): Stick to what you need to do and you'll progress, pushing yourself to the very limit consistently will probably hinder your progress and gains
shoulder soreness Bullet2345 2 5 yearseknight (58109): Absolutely no way to tell without knowing your history, the layout of the workout, and seeing your form. -3X
D.O.M.S. Let's talk about it... Thedude67 17 6 yearssamirsaleh (1957): Even though I agree and im convinced its not an indication, DOMS always gives me a feeling of accomplishment
Uneven soreness?? Sedlo18 3 6 yearssamirsaleh (1957): My left testicle has been over developed for the past 25 years in comparison to my right. Like EK said, ur probably thinking abt it too much to be noticing these things. Train hard, lift heavy, and vary your exercises, you will reach a point where both ur pecs will grow in size and gain strength that any minor genetic imbalance between them wont be noticeable.
Ibuprofen = loose all gains? Sedlo18 26 6 yearseknight (58109): 2400mg would be considered a near toxic amount used chronically. Those guys will get a GI bleed and learn. Or not. Some people are just dense. -3X

Acute Vs Chronic Cortisol Release mikestheguy 1 6 yearsmikestheguy (261): Started a database of systematic literature reviews. Just finished an article on cortisol release. Provide feedback or engage in conversation/debate. Below, Layne Norton discusses (starting at the 9:00 minute mark) cortisol release during work outs and the underlying comparative effects to other hormonal changes simultaneously occurring throughout the body.

Lower back stiffness brian12 17 6 yearsphikapFelix (4): try a couple yoga positions that will help stretch and relieve some back stiffness and or back pain over time. Downward facing dog and cobra position.
Overly Sore Thisisscotty 18 6 years4real (3319): The first time i squatted i had D.O.M.S so bad i could bearly walk! It'l get better but stretching, foam rolling , maybe light cardio in areas seems to help me !
DOMS Trharrison 5 6 yearsNyko (2884): DOMS is your body's central nervous system recovery to the taxing of the workout. Muscles need approx 48hrs to recover.
Low back burn/stiffness/pain while running. DFMaster240 8 6 yearsSnoogal (190): Now then kidda I run a lot, and used to get the same problem. I also used to get the same problem from quads/squats I cured it with back extension/hyper extension(machine). I would do 2 x 50 reps with no weight before each run, and on back day, and on quads days. A little tip for hamstrings is stand on heels and point toes up to really stretch out and hit them more direct. Worked/works for me, every time.
Hitting sore muscles (Article included) kospel 16 6 yearsThor (5028): Haven't read the article, but let me say that delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is not related to hypertrophy. It's completely distinct and has no relationship to muscle growth or atrophy. If you care to, you're welcome to search for a few of my older posts where I outlined exactly how DOMs occurs. TLDR: You are fine to train when muscles are sore as long as you've given them the appropriate rest period. EDIT - Just flicked through...

Slight tightness/little pain in lower back. DFMaster240 18 6 yearsmikejamesjhm (1): It is probably due to stiffness. This problem seems to me can be solved by performing exercises correctly including limited stretching that will be effective for the pain.
They see me rollin' sriram 1 6 yearssriram (2050): Hey, Anyone else in love with foam rolling? Couldn't find a thread about this topic, so I decided to start one. To those that have tried foam rolling, what's the difference between the basic foam rollers and the more expensive kind in terms of actual physical impact? And to those who haven't tried foam rolling, here are some videos that might help; ...

Teenager counting calories + DOMS SORENESS YoBrah 4 7 yearsionatan (31): Use myfitnesspal for everything you put in your mouth, except fruits and veggies. Buy an electric kitchen scale, each time you eat lets say chicken, put in on the scale, for example 200g of chicken, and then put it in myfitnesspal. If you wanna lose weight, I recommed taking your bodyweight x 12 or 13. Thats the calories you should be consuming. Do 30-45minutes of cardio 3-5 times a week. Eat 1g per lb of bodyweight of protein, the rest...

tightness around my elbows Jezza_91 4 7 yearsJezza_91 (1315): I dont lock out at all, i learnt from my rookie days lol. I got my old trainer to take a look at my form today and he said everything looks good. could it be nerves or tension around my fore arm causing my elbow? area around it to feel tight?
Doms Thewasp 2 7 yearsDukenhiemer (23938): Doms is not an indicator of a good workout. I rarely get DOMS anymore. At least running PHAT. I'm sure as hell tired the next day, but not so sore I can't walk.
Tight Neck & Upper Trap Muscles from Liftin FiremanSi 7 7 yearsFiremanSi (42408): Yeah tennis ball plus some basics on Trigger Point therapy... Do better damage for me... Actually using a 5kg medicine ball in the same fashion as a foam roller is Unreal Lads !!
Feeling more sore on one side Zny93 4 7 yearsZyzzst (4486): No problem man, when i train my left pectoral muscle gets a huge pump when my right one doesnt, even tho they are the same strength and size.

help with muscle soreness salvati5 18 7 yearsSwift (1411): Almost all of us take BCAA's, they help but its not going to fix you. It kinda looks like, from how you've been responding to everyone's posts, that your after a magic pill or supp to make your pain go away...sadly its not out there. All you need to do is keep doing what your doing, get heaaps of sleep, eat plenty of food and drink water. It really is that simple...just wont fix over night.

Why is my back never sore after a workout?? DFMaster240 17 7 yearsDirkenhiemer (12157): It's not like you have to do a set # of reps at a time. Sometimes I will do just 5 at a time, while making sure all of muscles in my back are contracted as hard as they possibly can be. I just set a # of reps that I want to complete in my head, and then do as many sets as it takes to get there. And as it has been mentioned many times before DOMS is not an indication that you get a good workout. There are many factors that come into play. As far...
Muscle recovery BaiTu 22 7 yearsshockingfit (334): @brian12 fresh squeezed lemons are a lot better. The commercial juice aren't that rich in micro nutrients as most of these are sensitive to oxidation and to prevent that they must add tons of chemical additives etc.. Even with the fresh squeezed one it should be consumed soon after you make the drink to take maximum benefits, and always make sure you use plastic or wood when interacting with lemon. Metal spoons etc.. will interact with lemon by...

quick question OhhLoLo 7 7 yearsSRorhrbac0808 (47098): Hitting your legs hard AF right now is your best bet... It will shake off your DOMs... Get your blood and nutrients flowing in the right places
Answer quick before I go to the gym! Zyzzst 4 7 yearsNyko (2884): Typically you only need to wait around 48 hours before working out the same muscle again however nutrition and rest are the two most important factors in the chance of "Over training". Like watson said, the DOMS you feel is lingering from the exertion, it does not mean they are not ready to be targeted again.

Max-OT.Should i feel the pain? VytasP 4 7 yearsJusu (618): Pain and soreness aren't necessary, they don't tell anything about workout. Results tell everything.
Belts Monster81 2 7 yearsDETERMINED1 (2239): you can swich back and leg day around so that your back is not sore when you do squats or you can buy a belt.... i prefer to use a belt when doing squats regardless...but sometimes like today i forget to take it to the gym
DOMS jeeza_1234 23 7 yearsadam82a (3100): I would NOT recommend anyone to take NSAID since it slows down the protein synthesis which is quite the opposite of what we are trying to achieve. I enjoy the DOMS in my legs, feels like my legs are going to explode. Feels like you have done something right :p
How should you feel after a workout? DavidP94 12 7 yearsDavidP94 (382): Great responses people. I work out in the afternoon so I've already had a day at school. Everyone seems to be thinking differently from one another. I think I'll just stick by my instincts and work fucking hard. Like I had my athletics carnival 2 days ago (for the record, 1st in high jump, 2nd in javelin) and am still sore in my quads, calves and groin muscles haha - good feeling! Luka you're one weirdo buddy, but kudos for all your effort! Ha.

Too much cardio/muscle soreness in ABs AJT1984 5 7 yearsAJT1984 (1): this is my lifting schedule (keep in my i switch it up every week but legs always fall on wed and sat) Mon-back pull ups, isolateral rows, pull downs, seated rows, high rows, rear delts, blah blah Tues-Chest/Abs incline, decline, flys, press, and 2 tri exercises, deadlift (135lbs) wed-legs walking lunges (135lbs) squats (155lbs), leg press (540lbs), single leg press, extensions, hack squat, kick backs, abs Thurs-shoulders press, fronts, sides,...
muscle soreness shreddedAsh 24 7 yearsLittleDragon (486): Activating the muscle isn't detrimental, tearing the muscle fibres is. I've even heard of body builders performing light sets on a body part they trained the previous day just to get a pump into the muscle. Pump = blood = nutriets flooding the repairing muscle.
Pain destn2bripped 24 7 yearsdestn2bripped (15): oh so you have been in pain for a while bud. wrist wraps sound good though. itll add some brace to my little ass wrist. yeah that grip you got i heard is not to good. i heard it was thumb over fingers for max. i got to break the bent wrist.
