Best Way To Cure DOMs

  • Sep 26th, 2018 at 4:16PM

In my infinite wisdom I decided to cover my legs in this Chinese boxer oil last night with a view to soothing my aching legs. Holy shit I think I used too much. At one point I didn't know if I was going to burst into tears or flames with a bit of self immolation! Jesus it was hot. Fortunately I washed my hands before any toilet trips!!!

Anyway. I now know that the best thing for DOMs is movement, protein, rest, and hydration.

Went lighter on today's squats figuring that some light reps would aid recovery. I seem to have my entire team's protein grams in my diet too, which I kind of like at the moment.

Right - going to try and walk down the hill. Wish me luck

Downhills are the worst when experiencing the DOMS. Chinese Boxer oil is great. IN MODERATION.

      This post made me laugh, what the holy hell is on your bald head in that End of Week 2 photo? :)

        Yeah that's a big diet you've got going here for week 3. Looks like Chen is ready to bulk you up again on your multiple trip down the Iron highway.

        Now just make sure you don't mix up that bottle of oil in the middle of your bottles of hot sauces you like so much. We don't need a fire cleansing.

          Ha! I used to use white flower oil after dragonboat practices - first season. Needed help putting it on my back. Shafi touched his eye without washing hands well. 😭

                  Haha - that made me laugh. It reminded me of an old family story of my Grandfather using something like Tiger Balm and not washing his hands before using the toilet. He applied water to soothe which only made it worse!
