Not really, about the DOMS. Usually it should stop being sore while your working out, but if its bad enough that it's affecting your lifts then you need to recover better or leave a day between those types of lifts.
Try doing a little active recovery in between big lifts if you want to speed things up a bit. Jump-rope or stair master for 10 minutes should set you straight long enough for it to be a non-factor during the workout. That and foam rolling/mobilizing areas with a Lacrosse ball has done wonders for me.
Also, anecdotal, but spending some time in the steam room after the gym really helps my DOMS personally.
Hey guys, I was wondering how many days most of you take off during a week when performing heavy lifting with multiple muscle groups on each day. I usually work two different muscle groups each day for 3 days and then rest for a day and then repeat. How do your guys workout schedule compare? and is mine efficient?
