    ETS and DOM's

    I get terrible DOM's after Squats and Leg Pressing. This isn't a big deal normally but I just found out that I will be playing softball the day after Squat day this summer. Usually I am so sore I can barely walk so this could be a big issue.

    I won't stop lifting to play softball so I was wondering if ETS helped much with DOM's. If it did it might be a really big help.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    My results with ETS have reduced DOMS significantly. When taking it I am rarely suffering, and even when I am sore it is much less than it used to be.

    Reduced DOMS is one of the main functions of ETS.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    While on the ETS is it ok to take a multi such as NOW Adam, along with antioxidants and fish oils? I remember reading somewhere that it might not be too healthy to take it with other basics.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

    Not sure where you read that, but I'm sure it's fine.
