Not all have heard this word, but all will now understand what I mean.
DOMS in pole dancing is a condition when yesterday you worked out fine, but cannot get up from bed today.
In other words, this is a delayed onset muscle soreness syndrome or, defined differently, a result of microscopic ruptures in muscle fibers.
Please drop all talk of the 90s about the lactic acid.
This is removed from the muscles right after the load and within an hour at the latest.
The pain in the body on the day after a workout is not that.
DOMS manifests itself when you give your body a new load, which is unusual for it in terms of amount and quality. It will remain for a day or two and then subside.
THERE IS NOTHING DANGEROUS IN IT! This is the organism’s normal response to an unusual stress. After recovery it will reach a new level of muscular stamina and / or strength.
During regular training sessions one can strain his body to a moderate DOMS once in 2 to 3 months (a moderate extent is when the DOMS peak remains for no more than two days).
One shouldn’t train when the DOMS is at its height. This will prevent the muscle recovery.
One shouldn’t resort to any special help; all will pass all on its own. However, it would be good to take a warm bath, apply a light massage or do a set of very moderate exercises.
This will improve the blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.
