DOMS: Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
Sore muscles are a bitch.
(Or a blessing, if you’re kind of twisted that way.)
Typically, it’s a sign of a job well done in the gym!
Other times, you may legitimately wonder if you broke your back or will ever walk right again…
I personally enjoy the muscle soreness following a tough lift. It’s confirming, the way it is for most people.
Difficulty placing myself on the toilet certifies I pushed my limit in the squat rack. Struggling to shampoo my hair proves how taxing overhead presses are on your delts. Ripping set after set of deadlifts explains why I fall over trying to put my pants on.
These are exciting times (in my world). 😀
Still though, there are times when the soreness becomes a hindrance between me and other enjoyable activities in or outside of the gym.
Times when I’m too sore for a HIIT circuit, hiking or biking outside, walking up and down the stairs successfully, or any little everyday thing you want to be able to do without wincing.
In the name of you and your ability to function half-way normal, I’m here to share my 6 strongest anti-crippling muscle recovery tips with you.
