    Muscle recuperation & soreness

    I'm 38. Is it typical that I should feel added soreness if I take a week off for a muscle? I typically hit each muscle twice a week (really once every 4 days). It seems weird to me that an extra couple days equals soreness. Maybe my diet is off?

    I'm not sure I understand how you can rest just one muscle, but to answer your question it really depends on how you train. Yes an extra couple of days can equal more soreness, but it can also not too. But, no its not "weird", in general, without knowing more about your situation. ( Active recovery sessions help that for me. )

    Good luck.

    Yep. I usually do quads and hams in the same session, once a week. If I miss the leg session, the following week is doms hell.
    Bigtallox is on the money....active recovery....

    plus stretching works for me.

    I used to have severe DOMS that would last 6-8 days. I played around with different movements, sets/reps but none seems to really help. Thanks to this site, I learned that I was not taking in enough protein to repair my muscles. I still have some DOMS but its usually only last a day now and is less intense.
