When it comes to managing chronic pain and getting started in the gym there are a few things you have to expect. One of these things is muscle soreness. If you’ve never been in the gym before, this muscle soreness could get pretty bad during your first month or so of training. If not addressed and handled correctly, this soreness could develop habits in your training that lead to a lack of control with your chronic pain recovery. In todays video I’m going to share the biggest mistake you make when addressing extreme muscle soreness and chronic pain.
When you already have chronic pain on your plate it’s hard to throw on there the challenge of extreme soreness from working out and still know what is good and bad. Often times someone getting back into the gym after some time off or maybe the first time, struggle through that first month of using muscles they never new existed.
You see, there are a lot of people in the fitness industry that have the bad habit of grading the quality of the workout off of how sore they are the next few days. For some, it’s like a right of passage. You didn’t really train your legs unless you have a hard time getting in and out of chairs or taking the stairs at work. This is a common thread you see in the workout community and as new people come in they adopt this same way of thinking.
I want to challenge this mindset and hopefully bring relief to those who constantly feel like they play tug of war with the “quality” of their workout while managing their level of pain.
After watching this video you are going to walk away feeling more confident in your knowledge of when to push and when to pull back and what you should grade your workouts off of so that you are in control of your chronic pain journey.
