Stretch. Foam roll. Train smarter, not harder. Be patient as well- the longer you train the less the DOMS will be.

I wouldn't personally take Mg for soreness. Seems a bit hypocritical given your position on Vitamin D and sunlight. -3X

Lol and so it begins, going to pop my popcorn right now!

@qtdreams92 Yeah it's just one of those things that happen. With those cooking skills grab a man and get free massages every day.

Hahaha! So true. Should be easy @qt.

But yeah, the more consistent you are with your training the less the DOMS will be. You can also do some light exercises along with stretching to get the blood flowing into the muscles. Obviously, make sure you're getting adequate macros and sleep.

@qtdreams92 Haha I honestly wasn't even thinking about that kind of massage, get your mind clean!

And yeah you can have some pop corn, it's the kettle corn type though. My favorite.

@LVjack haha kettle corn is nice! we have microwave corn here. oh and I am impressed that you manage to turn this topic into about cooking. lovely

@wannabemuscular so i need bloody flowing thru the muscles. cardio should work then yea?

@eknight now that I think about it, why won't you personally take magnesium for soreness. what do you have against it?
and FYI i take multi now (it has lots of D) and stand in the sun so my 'position' has changed. so please scrub that item off your notepad cheers

@qtdreams92 Australia is like another world lol, kettle corn is a type or flavor of pop corn that goes in the microwave. That would be awesome though to cook kettle corn in a kettle...

@qtdreams92 I don't have anything against it. I just don't believe that any potential benefit it could offer is worthwhile because A) I don't mind DOMS and generally have a high pain tolerance, and B) don't believe in taking muscle relaxers or nervous system depressants to deal with the body's natural inflammatory response. -3X

Why?

Interestingly, why are you taking iron as well? Are you anemic? -3X

For some reason vitamin D or Zinc gave me really bad acne. Thought it was diet related but stopped taking it awhile ago and still eat shit food with no acne. Will never take those vitamins again.

@nine0seven Interesting. I've never heard of zinc doing that and have actually read it reduces inflammation and helps clear acne. Never heard of vit D doing that either but hell, if you got off them and feel good and the acne is gone then I wouldn't take those either.

@eknight Taking iron bc my blood test last year showed low level of MCH which is partly corrected with iron supplementation. So yeah kind of close to levels associated with microcytic anemia but no I'm not anemic.

From my most recent blood test MCH levels are now in the high end range of normal as you can see here:

Taking magnesium just for its benefits in converting blood sugar into cellular energy and the magnesium spray has cleared up any and all red bumps on my back. It's basically good for reducing inflammation and cortisol levels in the skin. It kind of burns because it dries out the skin a bit being that's it's pretty much just a salt but it works for me.

Vitamin d and zinc are known to help clear/prevent acne.


Everyone's different I guess.

At least that's what I do. I'll foam roll for stretching etc before squats but once doms set in I just stretch n ride it out

this !,
only time it bothers me is if i change up bench press day/squat day. nothing like reaching back to grab the bar for the first time on squats after a good bench press day.

@LVjack I am going to have to find some of that magnesium oil!

Epsom salt bath, Light stretches and rumble roller actually works! (in that order). So the first few rolls were nasty. But then the doms went away eventually.

@Dem41 uh-oh, thats whats going to happen to me exactly in about 3 hrs from now lmao

@eknight

What is your opinion on sports massages? As you have seen my dead form has changed a lot for the worse, my lower/mid back is sore everyday right now, I'm not a pussy who'll just complain about doms bothering me but I'm tight as shit in my back right now and feel my body is ready for a deload/rest so I'm gonna take a few days off next week and book a sports massage, I've had them before but wanted to know if you think they help with lifting/form
