Today we are going to talk about the old cliché …. No pain, No gain.
And the reason why is because I was adjusting someone recently who was all stiff and sore from training in the gym a few days earlier.
But they thought that this was a good thing because their personal trainer told them that “ if there is no pain, there is no gain”.
This is so not true and this is why I want to sort this out for you right here and now.
When you first start exercising, minor soreness in your muscle tissue a day or two later is normal. But this should no longer be the case after you have been training regularly for about a month.
Soreness and stiffness and loss of flexibility in the neck or shoulder or lower back for 5 or 6 or 7 days afterwards is not normal.
When you start exercising it is absolutely critical to take into consideration your own unique and individual postural distortions. If you have Forward Head Posture or thoracic hyperkyphosis (humping of the upper back) or scoliosis or uneven shoulders or hips for example, there are certain exercises you should do and certain exercises you shouldn’t do depending.
The problem is, it is beyond the scope of most personal trainers to accurately assess your postural distortions and consider them when designing an exercise program for you. For an exercise program to be effective, it has to be safe and it has to work towards reversing your postural collapse.
Cookie-cutter routines usually cause your posture to collapse further and it is highly unlikely you will see any positive results.
