Woah.....do the foam rolls really work for DOMS? Amazing! I feel like a caveman who has just discovered fire! I'm only able to back squat once a week, but would love to 3x week....will the rolls help eliminate the DOMS enough to where I can do this ya think?

Never underestimate the effects of epsom salt baths and trigger point therapy for recovery, either.

Pushing through the DOMS until you're body gets used to it will get rid of the DOMS. I no longer get DOMS from squatting, body gets used to high volume pretty fast.


40kg for 4x6 then 1x5 on incline db bench and 5x5 with 11.25kg on pull ups. PRs feel good man.

Cottage cheese is a lifesaver, no preparation, goes down easy and digests well. 2$/half litre tub isnt too bad especially considering how convenient it is. Kc i think im around 180 but i havent been on a scale for a couple weeks - ive always had the best size gains at >230g daily. 180-200 can keep me adding weight to the bar weekly but for whatever reason that extra 50g is worth it for me.

My friend has massive fuckarounditis. Been lifting for 4 years, weak as fuck and DYEL mode. Does every kind of curl and has tiny biceps, does shit ROM on everything, claimed 20 pull ups, asked him to show me. Did one full ROM then the other 19 didn't go past 90 degrees, legit like 3" ROM. Lifted with him for a few weeks around Easter got his squat up to 80kg, claims its up to 100kg, lifted with him last week and he can't get 60kg to depth. A year or 2 ago he was bum raping the MMA training, then it was boxing training now he wants to be an oly lifter. Went some 2 hour oly lifting seminar and now is saying he's gonna do snatches and front squats with me tomorrow. I am excite to see his snatch, wait wut?

Edit: Just sent the brah the martin berham article and as a reply he sent some whale a message saying I wanted to fuck her. Cheeky cunt.

Well I'm a tiny little weakling. About 120 lbs, and I when I squat say, 85 lbs 5x5, hell, I even have a hard time sitting on the shitter for a full 7 days

Do you stretch? You should stretch.
Dynamic warmup prior to lifting, static stretching after.

Foam roller helps, sure, but for me, improving my posture has helped get rid of aches and tightness (or at least reduce)

I think I'm going to eat a bowl of cereal post workout and then eat my normal meal instead of oatmeal

First time I tried a foam roller it was horrible pain haha. My lower back has been pretty wicked sore lately. Think a foam roller would help that at all?

Haha, I'll try anything to get rid of this. Never seems to go away, especially with lifting.
