DOMS - Delayed onset muscle soreness

We all know the feeling.... If you have just started a new class or just got back into it after a break you might experience DOMS.

What is DOMS?

The main cause of DOMS is a combination of microscopic tears in the muscle fibres that result from a workout and the muscle's response to repair the damage. Tiny muscle tears occur when muscles are stressed more than they are used to, or in a new way.

Here are BBL's recovery top tips:

  1. Drink plenty of water

  2. Have a bath

  3. Keep moving! Gentle exercises like walking, swimming or a light jog

  4. Foam roller. Roll the tension away (we use it in the studio)

  5. Gentle stretch

Have a wonderful weekend
