Muscle Soreness, also called as DOMS or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, is that burning sort of a pain, which you feel in your muscles, after a day or two, of your hard training schedule, especially when you have tried an unusually new exercise or worked out with a higher intensity. It’s also referred to as the ‘Sweet Pain’ in sports and gym workouts, and is like a reward to many for the work they have put in the previous workout.
But not many people are clear about the reasons behind DOMS, or what really works for its treatment. Most are under the age old myths floating around, using the local recommended treatment patterns,by the coaches and trainers, who themselves are equally oblivion about the real science of DOMS.
