Does your post meal vary on leg days, some report nausea with leg training and maybe the nausea contributes to the post workout glycogen window being missed and causeing DOMS. I get the same problem and it could be sheer size of the musclegroups or the dificulty in streching them.

i have been training for 6 years, it started happening about a year ago. with legs i do leg extensions 8x3, squats 10x1, 8x1, 6x1, 4x1, standing hamstring curls 8x3, standing calve raises 8x3. i don't get nausea but sometimes i get the feeling like i am going to pass out. i breathe properly when i do work out and post meal is about the same after every workout.

Maybe its just as simple as a big muscle needs more resources and time to heal a larger area. The body can heal the larger muscle groups at the same rate as the smaller upper body couterparts, but due to the sheer size a larger time frame is needed. try eating more of everything post workout and so if this chages slightly. Could just need time.Originally Posted by Big Dog
