I personally love DOMS, it makes me feel like I've done a proper workout. I like it best in my legs.

No not really.
It depends how bad it is. I've had it so I couldn't straighten my arms for a week. Made every day activities like getting dressed pretty difficult.
I don't get sore with low volume. And besides, soreness isn't an indicator of a good workout.

It may not be an indicator of a good workout but it sure as hell is satisfying to me.

Hell no. I could do without.

Nope, I dont enjoy paper cuts, stubbing my toe on furniture, smashing fingers in doorways, or DOMS.
I enjoy it sometimes.

I do, but I'm afraid about my next workout if it lasts too long.
I do sometimes, if I've had bad workouts for a while, then hit the gym hard and get a mild case of it, it satisfys me and makes me feel that I got something out of my effort.
I'm sorry for the dumb noob question, but what is DOMS???
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
The soreness you get hours or a day after lifting.
I like it in my arms because I feel it so seldom. I really barely ever feel sore. Mostly I feel soreness in the chest and legs, but very rarely in my calves, arms, delts, and traps. I dont know.
i hate it in my biceps, when I cant stretch my arms out normally
It quite quite an interesting example of pain perception. If I felt the same level of soreness from the flu or bruising I would be moaning groaning, and generally feeling sorry for myself. But because it's DOMS, I like it, and enjoy the feeling of soreness.

In my opinion, knowing that you have done something to cause a change to your body is pleasant, but the actual DOMS is not.
I enjoy them all except when squatting makes me walk funny and people begin to think things.
My soreness pattern is exactly the same. Maybe its a short thingOriginally Posted by Budiak
DOMS is fine with me, I kinda like it, except in my lower back. That area is annoying cause it makes it hard to tie your damn shoes

I like DOMS in any bodypart except my legs when I have to work. I hate walking like a penguin the day after a leg workout.

I once got told by some woman at work that I was walking like an old man. When you have DOMS there is no other way you can walk.
