What causes DOMS, delayed onset muscle soreness?

What causes DOMS, delayed onset muscle soreness? 

It was once thought that DOMS was caused by the buildup of lactic acid after a hard exercise session or when the trainee was unaccustomed to training and "overdid" it. Newer research has led researchers to believe that it is caused by micro tears in the muscle(s) that were trained during the workout a day or two before the soreness occurred. Training while sore can increase the soreness and pain felt.

Remember, micro tears in your muscles after training is beneficial because your body overcompensates for the minor damage to your muscles by rebuilding them stronger than they were previous to your workout. Stronger muscles are the result. So don't be overly concerned with the soreness felt. As you become more conditioned the soreness will become a thing of the past.
