    This is exactly what I said in my first reply. Frequent, high-intensity training with novel exercises is a prescription for muscle soreness.

    Severe, chronic DOMS is nature's way of telling you that you are exercising too intensely, too often, or both. It also means that, in the long term, you may be doing more harm than good.
