Pay Attention to Pain and Soreness
By Chad Tackett
This microtrauma may sound harmful but is in fact the natural response of your muscles when they experience work. This is the primary reason it is so important that you get enough rest between specific muscle workouts. Each time you work out with weights, you cause this "damage"--these tiny tears in your muscles; they need ample resting time to rebuild and become even stronger, bigger, and more firm.
Pain During or Just After a Workout
The following injuries can occur as a result of carelessness:
1.Tendonitis: This is inflammation of the tendon and can occur if you begin
your first set with too heavy a weight and/or are not properly warmed-up.
Rest is the best treatment for this painful injury.
Any time you do have inflammation or swelling, use the R.I.C.E method of reducing damage and speeding healing. For injuries, R.I.C.E. is nice.
1.Rest: When you are hurt, stop your workout immediately and take weight
off the affected area.
Strength training provides many important benefits that cannot be achieved by any other exercise or activity. However, when enjoying this great form of exercise, be sure to pay attention to pain and soreness so that your program is not only effective, but safe as well. Good luck: I hope you enjoy all the wonderful benefits of a safe and effective strength training program.
