    Training with DOMS

    Shop Now
    I trained hard on Wednesday (Squats as strength and conditioning!) and my legs are still really achey! I quite fancy training tonight, and then again tomorrow morning?

    Would going light tonight on squats help my muscles recover and get ready for tomorrow morning?

    I'd pick a different body part to concentrate on until they we're achey anymore.

    Good point; and I forgot to ask if deadlift would be a sensible lift, or whether to leave legs entirely?

    agreed...focus elsewhere. training light tonight might make your legs feel better at first, but they are still going to need to heal.

    I'd train them light. If you wanted to and COULD hit heavy numbers, you could train heavy. There's no reason, outside of discomfort (which is a big one), to abstain from training at the intensity you want to with DOMS

    Deads would be fine.

    Thanks all! Yesterday I also did some of Kelly Starretts mobility WOD which I just realised probably made my legs sore too!

    I'm not sure what kind of deadlift you do but mine deffinatly involves my legs. Deadlifts work alot more then just back.

    Why don't you do some upper body lifts instead?

    deadlifts should mainly use your glutes.

    go for a walk and do range of motion movements for active recovery to alleviate doms quicker
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.
