DOMS

I was just wondering whether massages are beneficial when experiencing DOMs. If so why is this?

    A good massage will sometimes make you sore the next day, espcially sports/deep tissue/physio massages. So from my experience, I cant see it helping with DOMS (also, working an area that is tender may be uncomfortable).
    Good massages are worth while though, helps you relax, loosens your muscles and body a bit, work out any knots or tight areas etc... Similar with chiropractors. I find they tend to help in a few ways, I have them fairly regularly.

    No problem. Nothing you can really do about it, after months of training it tends to lessen to an extent. Its not really an indicator of anything specific (arguments for and against that), as for example, I find my Chest often feels tender, where as my Lats or Delts are not.

    Things that I think help me are below, some will apply to everyone, but others are more individual to me.

    Plenty of rest (good 8 hours sleep and lifestyle)
    Correct nutrition (make sure your body is getting everything it needs)

    Good warm up, cool down and stretching
    Sauna, followed by cold showers

    Hope this helps

    Rest

    not needed infact if you do some light weights or cardio the day after it eases it more than doing nothing.
