It happens to everyone at least once, if not several times. You train hard pushing your body to the limit, and those little aches/pains you felt after training persist. You know what I’m talking about. That tendinitis in your elbows, lower back pain, neck stiffness, knee pains, shoulder aches, etc. If you want gains you’ve got to push through the pain, right? Not exactly, you don’t want to make the injury worse by continuing training like normal, so it may be smarter to take some time off. But if you’re like me, you don’t want to lose any time at the gym from a minor injury. We put together some short workouts for some of the most common aches and pain areas to help get back to 100% and not miss a beat.
We all went through it growing up playing sports... That good old strength and conditioning program at the school. Obviously the strength part of that was much more enjoyable than the conditioning part. However, conditioning is a must if you are wanting to perform your best. Sport conditioning is similar, yet different than the average person’s cardio training.
