I have recently been eating a ton to fuel growth and strength. This food intake has allowed me to SMASH records and break PRs consistently, and as a result I have been experienceing some serious DOMS.
My limited understanding is that DOMS is just muscle damage repairing itself, but I was wondering if any science guys know more about this process. What happens after a muscle is tore up from the floor up that makes it grow bigger and stronger?
How much 'fuel' or food is required for this repair (when you're on a diet you're not going to build new muscle b/c you don't have enough fuel to build, in my understanding)?
