    Default Favorite Methods to preventing DOMS

    Here is something that I'm sure that everyone on this forum can relate and benefit from...

    My personal favorite is an ice bath and hiking.

    Let's see how large we can make this list everyone

    Man, wish I could help, but I rarely get DOMS, unless I do a brand new exercise. In that case, I do some stretching and some foam roller action.

    If that fails, a two day drinking binge usually cures it.

    I have yet to find a anything that prevents them for me when I vamp things up or do something new I always get them. I am experiencing them right now as a matter of fact. How do I help them? I just keep moving and keep exercising. The soreness only lasts for a few workouts then my body adjusts and I don't get them anymore until I change things up again Now granted I'm not as sore provided I am well hydrated when I workout and stay well hydrated after and for the next day or so, but hydration alone doesn't prevent them.

    I don't get DOMS much anymore unless I do something I haven't done for months and months at a fairly intense level. Outside of that though, I became convinced that cold showers (ice baths would also work) helped. I know there's a lot of controversy over whether any of the remedies people come up with have any objective validity. Which is probably why mc has written so much about it:

    Methods to prevent DOMS? I kind of like DOMS actually. Never the less, I rarely get it anymore. I wouldn't do anything to try and prevent it.

    I do absolutely nothing to prevent it-just suck it up until it's gone.
