delayed onset of muscle soreness

Muscle soreness that occurs 24–48 hours after exercise, especially after eccentric exercise.
 
Aetiology
Uncertain; DOMS is attributed to microscopic damage to muscle cell ultrastructure due to excessive mechanical force exerted by the muscle and connective tissues; risk is thought to be reduced by exercises that improve flexibility.
