    A nutrition bedtime story for people. I started taking fish oils (cod liver oil) about six months ago on a daily basis and noticed that my soreness went way down and my recover time was much shorter in duration. Major difference. I ran out of my favorite orange flavored cod liver oil about three weeks ago and, because I"m easily distracted and barely conscience on most days, I forgot to buy more and I stopped taking it. Result? Massive soreness from last week's workouts, very tired, a little moody and so forth…even after the previous week's easy pace! My conclusion: TAKE YER FISH OILS!

    No doubt that fish oil (or lack of) is a factor…but perhaps the recent spike in movement volume etc has something huge to do w/ your soreness as well.

    "DOMS occurs as a result of doing something that the structures aren’t adapted to. This could include a significant change in volume and intensity, or it could occur from performing a "new" movement using structures through a different range of motion (ROM). For example, a CrossFitter would experience higher levels of soreness if they started squatting 3×5 at heavier weights than they handle in their met-cons. Conversely, a lifter would experience high levels of soreness if they tried a high repetition CrossFit met-con after being adapted to low repetition lifting." J. Lascek

    The change from a pretty steady Wendler w/ recovery days, to 3x CF benchmark workouts in a row, etc etc could be more "to blame" for your sudden changes. The lack of fish oil perhaps compounded it though for sure.

    just thinkin out loud.

    Hi —Z-Glide. Maby this idea might help your sore body, besides fish oils.Eat lots of raw meat and sleep naked out in the snow. "ta- dah" no more soreness.

    Arnie and Vic, awesome insights! I think I definitely need to start sleeping naked in the snow…that was actually my first guess in how to prevent soreness but I wasn't sure… 🙂
