Mythbusting Monday – No Pain No Gain

Mythbusting Monday!

Unless you live under a rock, you have heard this term before – no pain, no gain.

There is a HUGE difference between soreness, and actual pain. It is normal to be sore; that does indicate your muscles have been working, but pain is not normal. Actual pain can indicate several things – you may be doing your moves wrong, you may have an injury you are unaware of…

I personally do not subscribe to this line of thinking, because I do have former injuries I have to be cautious of. If something is actually causing me pain, I stop. If it persists, I get checked out.

I do push through soreness, because how else is one to improve!?
