drop the ArA add 20 grams of Vegetable oil above your normal intake of Omega 6 fats, DOMS will increase..
s there a study(s) comparing ArA in trained to non-trained individuals with a controlled diet across both groups? I love to read it..
The western diet is an Omega 6 dominated diet.

What Foods Are High in Arachidonic Acid?
Arachidonic acid is ultimately one of the unsaturated fatty acids. Unlike many of the other unsaturated fats, however, arachidonic is predominantly found in animal-based foods. Often referred to as an omega-6 fatty acid, it is considered a "good" fat, since it's used in the production of hormones and the body's immune response. However, too much of this fatty acid can eventually lead to an elevation in cholesterol, which can cause plaque to accumulate along the arterial walls. According to the Mayo Clinic, this may result in coronary artery disease and increase your risk of heart and stroke.
While you've probably heard that fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, some varieties contain arachidonic acid. Tilapia contains one of the highest levels of omega-6 fatty acid, but you can also find it in catfish, yellowtail and mackerel. However, mackerel is a great source of omega-3 fatty acid, so it should balance the presence of arachidonic acid.
Another source of arachidonic acid is red meat. Generally, the fattier the meat, the more arachidonic acid is found in it, according to a study done by the Department of Food and Science at RMIT University; most of the fatty acid content is found within the fat itself. Beef and lamb, for the most part, have less of this unsaturated fat than other foods.
White meat tends to contain levels of arachidonic acid. Of the white meats, duck contains the highest levels, by far, but you can also find it in turkey, chicken and pork. In pork, the highest concentrations are isolated in the fat, much like in beef and lamb, so it's easier to avoid high intakes of this unsaturated fat through cut selection and food preparation.
Eggs & Dairy
Arachidonic Acid is found in both eggs and dairy. Since your total fat consumption should be anywhere between 25 and 30 percent of your total caloric intake, it's important to get this healthier fat into your diet. With eggs, however, you also need to be concerned with cholesterol. Eggs are fairly high in this fatty substance, so additional moderation is necessary to ensure that you keep your cholesterol in a healthy range.-Dana Severson

As for adding ArA, are we REALLY accelerating the inflammation response or is the reality instead that we're getting an inflammation response which is more in line to how the response would be if are ArA levels were adequate. Like in one of the posts on this thread I made earlier today, there's this idea that after a period of regular training, things like DOMS tends to go away, is considered to be our bodies "adapting" to the training. Now, that is the idea which is usually touted but after understanding the importance of ArA and how that leads to inflammation which causes things such as DOMS, is it really that our body has "adapted" to training or is the reality that we have lowered our ArA levels significantly to the level where we are no longer getting optimum/normal inflammation responses?

I mean, unless I've been misinformed which I clearly could be here.

My point was that BBers typically have lean cuts of meat (i.e. chicken breast), fat free dairy, etc.

The average person consumes barely a few hundred milligrams of ArA in their diet daily. If you're supplementing a couple of grams a day, you're going way above and beyond what's really feasible to eat through diet.
at 100mg/100g for a relatively fatty cut of beef you'd have to eat 4 and a half pounds of beef to hit 2g/day.
