One of the techniques I’ve used to help with DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) is to follow the “Hammer Whey protein before bed” protocol. It’s worked well for me on several occasions now. I also seem to sleep better too. These last few months I’ve gradually migrated from running to cycling, becoming a daily commuter. The ride is mildly hilly 14 miles each way to the office. When I first started, I was pretty much guaranteed to be sore the next day after the ride home. It’s mostly uphill, so I started with the “Hammer Whey before bedtime” protocol and found out I wasn’t as sore the next day. Within a week, I was able to ride back to back days. Personally, I’ve kept the protocol going, even though I ride 5 days a week and I’m not sore anymore. I just feel better the next day, especially towards the end of the week.
