Healthy exercise tips - 3 It's time to debunk a long held myth…

Healthy exercise tip #3:

If you follow the "no pain, no gain" formula for getting results in the gym I want you to think long and hard about what you're doing to your body. You only get one body to work with and by abusing it during your workouts isn’t going to reward you in the future.

You can get just as good of results if you follow a steady progressive exercise program without causing your joints, muscles, and tendons unneeded stress and inflammation. So the next time you go to push past the point of failure, lose form, and put your body at risk for injury ask yourself “is this going to be good for me in the long run?”
