What Is DOMS?

Your aching muscles have a name, DOMS. Sounds much more impressive now eh?

DOMS stands for delayed onset muscle soreness. It refers to that post-exercise muscle ache that prevents you lowering yourself to the toilet without holding on to the wall. Usually occurs 24-48 hours after you’ve bossed it in the gym.

DOMS can occur anywhere in the body that has recently been exposed to unfamiliar or intense physical activity.
