Why? That’s just mean right? Cycling whilst suffering with Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) probably seems callous and somewhat counter intuitive, if you’re sore then you rest right?
Well research performed at California State University thinks differently!
Steady state cardio i.e. cycling, running, rowing etc with no fluctuations in intensity, was seen to reduce the pain associated with DOMS and facilitated the return of strength back to baseline a day faster than it ordinarily would. You might also wish to consider ingesting Glutamine within 30mins after exercise to alleviate the symptoms of DOMS.
