DOMS | What Are They, And How Do I Prevent Them?!

how do i prevent doms

There’s a weird sort of satisfaction us fitness people get when we get DOMS: they’re the sign of a job well done in the gym, one, two, or sometimes even three days prior. Nonetheless they’re a painful sign, and can be pretty agonising for days after working out, especially if you’ve tried out a new workout or gone harder than usual!

One of the questions I’m frequently asked is how to get rid of DOMS, though unfortunately without stopping working out this isn’t going to happen completely. There are, however, some tips and tricks you can use to alleviate the symptoms and maybe even help heal DOMS faster. Read on to find out what DOMS are and how you can help yourself to recover faster from them!

Sweating Like A.. | Did Bikram Yoga Bring Me Any Health Benefits?

Find out what I thought of my time at Bikram, and whether it really has any health benefits compared to other types of yoga.
