Treating DOMS

do you think using a steroid for a short time is an effective treatment for muscle soreness?

no, but I have heard good things about DOMS and dark beers (porters and stouts)

it is a good question really. like if your calves are too sore to walk

Best defense against DOMS that I’ve ever used is copious amounts of BCAA’s, before -during and after training.
Works like a charm. I don’t know why…but it does,

Really.

Overkill really. How about a couple days off.

Seriously?
I don’t really care if you’re joking, though, from now on my PWO drink shall be St Peter’s Cream Stout LOL.

My best tip for “treating” DOMS is to do low intensity work and light stretching for the aching bodypart. It works for me - ymmv.
