Myth Buster Monday #4: The Myth of "No Pain No Gain"

Myth Buster Monday #4: The Myth of "No Pain No Gain"


Welcome to another episode of MythBuster Mondays!

You're hopping out of bed the morning after yesterday's workout but WAIT!

Uh Oh...

Your body is ACHING!

But that's okay because soreness is all a part working out. 

No pain no gain! Right?

Well, not exactly...

Depending on the workout, you may experience Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).

Which is the pain and stiffness felt in muscles several hours to days after unaccustomed or strenuous exercise.

But, if you wake up feeling like you were in a bar room brawl yesterday, it could be 3 things:


1. Lifting Too Much Weight: 

Lifting heavy weight adds a lot of pressure on the joints. And this only gets worse with age. (Trust me)

If lifting weight causes you pain, you can fix this by simply reducing your weight and increasing your reps.

Remember fitness is NOT a sprint, it's a marathon.


2. Improperly Warming Up

You can avoid injury by actively warming up before your workouts.

This means moving around and getting the blood flowing before exercise. 

A lot of people do static stretches to warm up. This is where they hold a stretching position for 10-60 seconds.

However, depending on the exercise, static stretches can hurt performance.

And even increase chances of injury. 

Warm up wisely.


3. An Inadequate Post-Workout

A lot of nutrition companies claim to have the breakthrough post-workout formula.

But a simple look at their ingredients list makes the claim questionable. At best.

Our formula is different because it's made with:

  • Fully balanced electrolytes
  • Optimized Amino Acids
  • And Muscle Supporting Herbs

From the time you break that first sweat...

until you hop out of bed the next day!
