No pain, no gain, wrong, think again

How I hate that saying "no pain, no gain". Not only is it erroneous but also dangerous. Your body has a built in system that tells it when to stop or it will be injured. That system is the nervous system and the alarm is pain. To ignore that alarm means damage to your body. If there is pain when you workout - stop, you are doing it wrong. Get guidance on what is causing the pain. You maybe doing nerve ending, tendon or bone damage all of which can take years to repair.
