Soreness And Results
When we train, according to my understanding, we create micro tears in our muscles. This causes DOMS (and not lactic acid as we used to think). Then during rest and eating, the body rebuilds them stronger.
Recently I got some muscle soreness just by rolling and falling at a class. The soreness in my back and forearms was identical to DOMS after a workout. Does this type of micro injury cause the same reaction, does the body rebuild this tissue stronger than before? It makes sense to me, and the soreness feels the same, and similar things happen after a workout and an injury.
So practically: could we just give someone a light beating on some muscle groups and cause them muscle gains with that? What about strength gains? Does the injured tissue necessarily build itself back stronger than before? If not, how comes that the soreness is identical?
