Massage the Golgi tendons; and, get more fresh oxygenated rich blood to the area by moving around. Golgi tendon massage gives longer lasting relief than muscle belly massage.

For muscle soreness I use ice, heat, Tiger Balm ointment, and foam/mobility rolling. They all seem to help a little.

I use a hot tub. That relaxes me and then I can fall asleep and try to sleep some of it off.

I use a hot tub as well. Best investment I made for my sore muscles. It does help to relax them.

I prefer training again for DOMS, nothing beats the pain away from sore legs like heavy squats again. Then you dont get sore anymore either!

Ice for the first 24-48hours then move on to contrast methods (alternating hot and cold). Putting heat on it too soon will increase inflammation. As for the squat again method. That is something called the "repeated bout effect" and works very well once the body adjusts to higher frequency training.

I use oil of eucalyptis. It works like a charm and makes me feel so good and refreshed.

I like to lift through them. I am doing a squat variant 5 days a week, varying intensity and the fastest thing to get through the pain of yesterdays squats, happens to be todays squats.

Get bloodflow into the sore areas to pump out the DOMS.


I have tried ice baths, hot baths, horse liniments, dance dance revolutions, but nothing gets the doms to go away like active recovery does for me.

It also may be a good idea to understand what type of active recovery exercises to use. DOMS is usually a result from heavy eccentric exercises. Eccentric is the lengthening of the muscle...this is where the most tissue damage is caused. Heavy eccentric exercise causes DOMS of a greater magnitude than that of isometric or concentric.

If your sole purpose is to get blood flow to an area it would be a good idea to use concentric exercises. Sled dragging would fit the bill here very nicely.

If you do another eccentric movement you are going to add to the damage you have already accumulated.
