No rude jokes please.
I’ve tried everything. Deadlifts and squats don’t give me DOMS in my ass - they give me DOMS in my adductors and hamstrings.
Dedicated posterior chain work (hip hinging) gives me DOMS only in adductors and hamstrings as well.
Barbell hip thrusts DO make my ass very sore in between sets, but not actual DOMS (it doesn’t linger on to the next day).
I’m one of these people who loves DOMS as it tells me I was doing something right.
I tried kettlebell swings, and I felt a great glute contrction when doing the exercise, but again, the DOMS was all adductors and hamstrings.
It’s not like I have no mind-muscle connection to my glutes - I’m actually good at activating them and squeezing on demand - but I just can’t get them sore.
What exercise do you do that gives you ass DOMS?
And does my inability to get ass DOMS mean I must have some muscle imbalance? ow to correct it?
