No Pain No Gain… Right?


No Pain No Gain… Right? Well No, Not At All

There’s training hard & then there is training smart. How “No Pain No Gain” has become yet another fitness myth…

We’ve all heard the moniker ‘No pain, No gain’ but how true is this?

Well not at all really, studies have shown that pain can impair the ability to produce force, so strap up your lifting gloves, use a pad on the barbell when doing squats or a cushion for hip thrusts it may actually help you progress.
It seems to be almost cool in fitness to do the most extreme thing possible, to the point people are actually causing themselves physical harm, which is the complete opposite of what we are trying to achieve, no?
Encouraging ourselves/clients to push themselves towards their goals is fine and may take a little bit of grinding to do so but for the most part we want the journey to be enjoyable, because it will become more sustainable and probably more successful.
