on DOMS cessation...
in light of mark's fitness themed monday post, i got to thinking about a pattern i've noticed, and a question it raises. here's a recent example:
my triceps were burning with DOMS recently. on fire, two days after doing some military presses and sets of lying trycep extensions. that was on a thursday. well, on sunday, i hit the gym for some squats and RDLs, and low and behold, this morning - while i have some seriously sore legs and an ass that feels damn tired - my tris feel completely fine.
what happened here? why did the DOMS disappear? did some sort of growth hormone release from the squats heal up the triceps (that sounds awfully bro-sciencey...)? thoughts?
"dean ornish and dr. davis think the palmitic acid our bodies use for fuel while we sleep is poison if we eat it. zero-carbers like charles washington think the oldest fuel in our evolutionary history – glucose - used by organisms a billion years ago and without which the brains of modern mammals cannot survive for more than a few minutes – is an unnatural toxin if you eat it. both views ignore basic facts of medical physiology and defy evolutionary history." - kurt harris
