Amateur Athletes: Should You Train through the Pain?

You often hear the adage “No pain, no gain,” and to a certain extent, it’s true. Whether you’re trying to get in shape or training for a marathon, performing at your best is going to require pushing through some discomfort. There are times, however, when it’s unwise to keep going. 

Remember, you won’t improve more quickly by training beyond your body’s limits. By using proper technique and stopping when your body tells you it’s time to stop, you’ll be able to reach your goals more quickly than if you push too hard and end up with an injury. Train smarter, not harder, and you’ll soon be in peak condition.
