DOMS, Muscle sourness, muscles, workouts

It is thought to be caused by eccentric (lengthening)exercises which causes small scale damage to the muscle fibres which leads to pain. It is most common with beginners or people who have had a lot of time off from training. When beginners experience DOMS they take the pain as a sign of an effective workout and an indicator that they’ve done enough work to make their muscles grow. But after few weeks of training their DOMS becomes less after each workout. When the DOMS completely subsides they think that their workout has become ineffective and look for new ways of training to produce muscle soreness. If someone is facing soreness, his/her training performance may be impaired altering the muscle protein synthesis (muscle growth) post training. Studies have shown that soreness is related to exercise induced muscle damage but the connection of post exercise soreness to muscle gain is highly questionable. it’s simply a reaction to a training stimulus that the body is not accustomed to. You can have a very intense, high volume workout without any pain the next day and this workout will trigger muscle growth. Soreness is not an indication of good or bad workout. It does not mean you are doing anything wrong if you are not sore. It does not mean you are in shape if you do not get sore. It does not mean that you are out of shape if you do not get sore. Soreness does not mean a whole lot, other than you are in a lot of pain
