In this episode, we’re talking about the question of ‘no pain no gain’ and whether the old saying is true. Is it really important to get sore during and after your workout to have an effective workout? And if you don't suffer from Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) was your exercise even worth doing? We discuss strength training and muscle damage, and why DOMS isn’t muscle damage but is related to that damage. I (Raph) also look at the evidence into why it’s essential to ensure that you have enough protein in your diet to repair your muscles after exercise.
