Intensity, Discomfort, Pain & Gains
Discomfort caused by muscle fatigue or lactic acid build up is GOOD.
It means that you are pushing yourself. Some muscle soreness a day or two after a workout is also GOOD, it means that your muscles are recuperating, repairing and growing.
However, Discomfort in your bones, joints, tendons, or ligaments or a sharp shooting sensation is BAD.
When this happens you should stop exercising immediately. Pushing through this sort of discomfort hurtsyour fitness and may force you to take off more time than necessary.
While resistance training should be intense and discomfort may result, Pain is is not a part of a successful workout. Pain is your body’s warning system that enough is enough. So listen!!!!
INTENSITY = A LITTLE DISCOMFORT = FITNESS GAINS
