They don’t work through pain.
While muscle soreness after a high-intensity exercise is normal, constantly feeling sore is not. “If working out is a painful experience, you’re not only doing the exercise wrong, but you’re also going to burn out or quit,” says Kennihan. Rather than push your body into pain, thinking you’re going to gain, use proper technique and be patient” Getting stronger takes time and you certainly won’t achieve these goals if you’re injured. If something hurts (even if it’s just for a day) avoid training that area or apply some corrective exercises beforehand. “Your body will key you into what’s going on, so it’s important to listen to those cues so to avoid further injury,” says Foster.
