OCTOBER – NOVEMBER 2018 by Megan Thomas
Jesse Elliott asks: What can you do to reduce the level of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) after exercise?
MEGAN: Hi Jesse, I’m going to commence by asking you a question – how much DOMS is too much? I think it’s important to remember that part of doing exercise is to get stronger muscles, which causes small muscle tears so the muscle grows. DOMS is part of this process. DOMS can also be from lactic acid build up and simple muscle fatigue from doing strenuous work.
