DOMS and antagonistic training

Hi CT:

What are your methods to minimize DOMS and overall soreness from a heavy workout ? For my leg workouts I use the hot-cold flushing method in the shower on my lower body muscle groups and it has helped me a lot… Active/passive stretching ? Any other suggestions that will help me tackle a flight of stairs the next day?

Thanks and keep up the great articles; I get stared at a lot in the gym doing your exercises but I know I will get the last laugh when the techniques and methods pay off…
