Rock-Solid Pain?

The old motto, “No Pain, No Gain,” is, in fact, true to some degree. We must break down muscle tissue if we want it to grow back stronger. This will involve a little discomfort, so we must learn to love that burning sensation in our muscles when doing resistance training.

However, we must distinguish between the familiar burn of lactic acid steadily surging through our muscles, and the sharper, red-flag kind of pain that signals the prospect of some kind of muscle or soft tissue-related injury like a pull, tear or strain. (So yes…even your pain has to be Rock-Solid!) But as you gradually ease into this kind of training, always warm-up, adhere to strict form and follow some of the other principles we’ll be covering, injuries will be very unlikely.
