No DOMS

So I have been pushing hard and making sure that I am upping the weights used each week. I started conservatively and have been progressively getting more aggressive with the exercises - but I am still not sore. No DOMS in sight - except my calves. This is interesting because on every exercise I am using more weight than on my last IRON, and I am making sure that my form is good.

Anyway, I am not necessarily associating muscle growth with DOMS, it's just an observation, and is kind of welcome as I can crack on with the leg exercises without any dread or trepidation.

Feel good so far, no real change in the mirror but that is ok at this stage.

Ok I thought that rabbit was your lunch. I hear you on the no DOMs, and then suddenly it could just hit. I feel like someone jabbed a skewer into the side of my butt. Seriously though, the reps are low, and you're already in great shape Scott. That could explain some of it.

    Nice rabbit.

      you can always try to find your max weight for 1 rep... drop a few lbs, and crank out 5-6 reps or failure. That should leave you nice and sore the next day...

        @Greg - that is a good idea.

          Clearly all your Iron experience coming to the fore. Stay strong and healthy!

            I havent had much DOMS either. Kenzai tends to do a lot of sets and fairly high reps so I tend to be slightly lighted than when I have done weights in the (dark far distant) past.

              went with a lighter weight, but more control here. Always a bit leary about my lower back.
