-advanced- stimulating muscle without soreness?

  1. -advanced- stimulating muscle without soreness?


    Hey guys,
    Long time reader and new contributer to this furom.
    Ive been training for 4 years and have always trained hard and i have sore muacles pretty much all the time.
    Few weeks back came upon the topic of stimulating muscles just enough to make them grow and to avoid sorness and DOMS all the time.
    I would like to get some opinions from you guys, is it possible to firce your muscles grow just as much?

    Flaunt.


  2. i feel like taking fish oils helps keep joint soreness away, and too eat ALOT and get plenty of sleep will help with the muscle soreness.. i feel like i also recover faster when taking BCAA's before/during working out. just my .02

  3. by recover faster i mean i feel less sore as compared too when i dont take them

  4. I only get sore when I come back to the gym after a lay off. Otherwise I just don't get sore. I also take a lot of bcaa though so that may have something to do with it.

  5. stretching may also help soreness, but im no doctor haha

  6. No my question is not how to cure soreness, cardio post workout helps btw,
    My question is do you still gain muscle if you dont go to failure on each set or dont take any measures that usually ends up with soreness?

    Yes absolutely you will still gain muscle.

  8. Thanks for your reply T.
    In that case eould you gain less?
    Admitedly the muscles will not see the reason to grow if they can handle the pressure.

  9. DOMS has very little to do with muscular hypertrophy. Overload and progression has far more to do with any sort of hypertrophy (sarcoplasmic or myofibrillar) than DOMS.

  10. Too much too soon causes DOMS. A lot of eccentric work and going to failure will also cause DOMS. Stretching has very little affect on it one way or the other.

    If you don't want to cause excessive DOMS (i.e.: you want to train the same muscle more frequently) then you need to plan your training such that progressions are made without subjecting the muscle to an unfamiliar stimuli. If you are switching exercises then its best to do only 1-2 sets at a lower intensity the first time around, and stop a few reps shy of failure.
    Slow and steady wins the race.

  11. If you want to eliminate DOMS, look into an HST type routine.
