    And how do you do pre and post-WO nutrition? I did 5g Leucine/BCAA's/Glutamine and experienced almost no DOMS. That being said, I also experienced very little results, but I might be doing a 2nd try.

    cut out all fish oil and eat 1-2 tbsp PB a day along with almonds, avocado, and the rest are fats from chicken, beef, milk, etc.

    Well, to be honest, today is the first day of my DOMS on my cycle (damn it feels good) and I am at day 26, so I would wait a little to see if it kicks in soon..

    Very interested to see this thread!

    Here is where I am - Day 55 of X Factor @ 6 caps a Day.

    No real increase in soreness @ any time. Mild strength increases, mild fat decrease.

    Not taking any NSAIDs, flax, fish oil, olive oil, penut butter, cissus, etc

    Thoughts?

    Train differently. If he's doing the same workout he's been doing previously, then he won't be tapping into the increased AA levels he has going on. No? I noticed that once I varied my training a bit, things changed. I would get DOMS, but nothing like I've seen reported by some. Since I've changed things slightly on most lifts, I've noticed a huge increase in DOMS. I'm on day 38 of my cycle now. The changed aren't drastic, just small things ie. using a wide grip on seated rows instead of a close grip etc. For things like deads and front squats, I've just concentrated on upping the weight every session and that has been enough to cause more DOMS. Using X-factor has been giving me some good strength gains, so that makes this strategy possible. Good stuff.

    I totally agree with you. Some suggest restructuring training to ensure that DOMS is achieved. Presently, I am on day 15 have encountered residual soreness, but primarily from the stimulus of training. Some people suggest DC training, but I would actually recommend PRRS training. My current approach utilized PRRS training and is great thus far. (If you are interested in PRRS training read this first and then this last.
