 Aches and DOMS - Find out the difference!

Pain from intense training is not surprising. However, symptoms can have different causes. For example, they can occur during exercise or can be felt after the end of physical activity. Learn the difference between body aches and DOMS and how to prevent them.

DOMS and scidias - what's the difference?

DOMS or body aches? In both cases, it is pain in the muscles involved in the exercises being performed. However, the main differences between DOMS and body pain relate to the mechanism of their formation and the time

their occurrence. By being aware of this fact, you can prevent its development in advance, which allows you to avoid feelings of discomfort and follow your training plan without any resistance.

The term "body aches" is used to describe muscle soreness that occurs during exercise, and that usually subsides soon after the exercise ends. The intensity of the pain is directly proportional to the engagement and the load. The main cause of body aches is an optimal acid-base imbalance (i.e., low

acidity) and an excessive increase in the concentration of lactic acid. This, in turn, leads to irritation of the sensory receptors responsible for pain. Acidosis is often accompanied by a lack of hydration in the body.


DOMS is the English term for delayed onset muscle soreness. They occur already after strenuous exercise is over, usually after about 24 hours. The pain peaks between 24 and 28 hours after exercise. The reasons for the development of DOMS are not fully known. However, it is believed to be the result of several factors:

  • Small mechanical shock to muscle fibers during exercise
  • Active inflammation resulting from strenuous physical activity
  • Swelling of muscle cells caused by exercise.

It should be noted that DOMS is most often observed in people who start adventurous training (deadadaptation of the body) and those who resume regular exercise after a long break from regular physical activity.

Body Aches and DOMS - Which Supplement to Choose?

The different basis for the development of body pain and DOMS requires a completely different approach in terms of prevention. A good way to achieve this is to enrich your daily diet with highly

 active nutritional supplements. The minerals in Olimp Alkagen capsules will prove to be very beneficial. It is a well-researched formulation of zinc

and magnesium, potassium and calcium, which have a positive effect on the management of electrolytes (magnesium), acid-base balance (zinc) and the proper functioning of the nervous system and muscles (magnesium, potassium, calcium).


It is also worth resorting to preparations of valuable application against the background of persistent inflammatory changes. Olimp Glutamine Xplode is a very good option. It is an amino acid that has

 positive immunomodulatory properties. In addition, it helps maintain an optimal nitrogen balance and proper hydration of muscle cells.
