View Full Version : DOMS worse during a cut?

03-20-2007, 12:59 PM
Been lifting for about 8 months now, or something like that. Still got a lot to learn. I'm lightly cutting, because though I"m only 160, I have a very small frame, and 160 on my frame is nearly 18% bf, and I really prefer to stay around 13%. Personal preference.

So I started a light trimming job on myself. Went from 3200 calories to 2500 calories.

Around the same time, DOMS, something I haven't noticed really since I first started lifting, became a constant issue.

I'm pretty much sore all the time.

Can it be that dropping my caloric intake has affected my soreness?

Yes. Recovery, doms, and all that fun stuff has alot to due with diet and nutrition.

I agree ETS will help.

Check your diet, sleep etc.
