    How do I accelerate my recovery from DOMS?

    Does massaging help out?
    How about those Methyl silicate like tiger balm? Should I do it everytime?
    Should I increase my whey intake during times when I am sore?

    Active recovery
    Ice baths

    Although...I love DOMS.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Sauna, or steamy shower, then cold shower.... and it will be ok if you scream....

    Carbs+magnesium helps too.

    Stretching and active recover.
    If your body cannot handle it, make sure sheer willpower will.....

    Some light work to get the blood pump in. Light cardio. Foam rolling. Pretty must the gist of it.

    DOMS is caused by rupture within muscle fibers. Inflammation will cause pain and stiffness. If you pump blood you will help your body to recover quickly. If you put heat, you will accelerate the healing processus. But...it needs time to recover. There is nothing you can do to avoid DOMS, but active recovery and heat might accelerate the healing.

    Ensure that you are getting enough water, potassium, and vitamin C. Other vitamins and minerals are important too but these are the usual culprits. Add more celery, bananas, oranges, peppers, and broccoli.

    Can anyone provide links to any reliable studies on how to reduce DOMS?

    I have to agree with the above posters about AR and rest and nutrition. I didn't see any mention of stretching so will throw my hat in for that.. I find that stretching( not overstretching ) is good for sore muscles.. + Massage does wonders for me. I will also agree with the statement of "time". I get really sore biceps when I hit my back and biceps day. It always takes about a 2-3 day recovery..

    This is the answer OP.

    The Jury's out on whether strecthing helps or not. There have been studies that have shown it doesn't but imo and at least from a personal point of view it does, either way it won't hurt to try.

    I find a really hot bath sped up my recovery, along with increased protein intake, light cardio and even some yoga to really stretch myself out.

    Studies 'indicated' that stretching doesn't really help DOMS (As others have said in this thread) but from a personal experience, they have greatly sped up my recovery.

    Ice baths have actually been proven to not help recovery, although they still make plenty of people feel better so still useful.
