Hi all Hoping for some help with a query of mine. I am aware delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is not required for muscle growth, it is a good indicator of one method to increase hypertrophy - muscle damage ( the other two being mechanical tension and metabolic stress). When I first started working out 4 months ago, I would get almost debilitating DOMS (that I do not miss) but I have noticed in recent months - even when increasing volume / reps that the amount of DOMS is almost non-existent or very very mild. I am not complaining about not being sore but it does lead me to question If I am working out hard enough? I hit the gym 5x per week so I am sure its not overall frequency or volume... thoughts?
