Well i started CF on monday and since my hamstrings have been killing me. Since i have lifted for like 10 years i know what DOMS are but never had them this bad before, its friday and they still hurt pretty bad. My guess is that it is the high reps that did it, anyone know of a way to eleviate them?, or will it just decrease as my body adapts to the higher reps?

Moving to Medical. You'll adapt to the stress of the new rep range...lots of folks recommend contrast baths, and there's always "vitamin M."

Lynne is right, adapt the workouts to your level, your body will adapt and use contrast showers/Baths. Baths are better, but if not available showers do good.

One good thing about the duration of your DOMS is that you know your hamstrings are relatively unconditioned -- which is something you can focus on in your workouts from now on.
