Recently, one of the topics we discussed during our Mom’s Night In ( our monthly live coaching call) was when we should take pause for rest and when is a good time to push through and challenge our bodies.
Although fitness has definitely adopted the mentality of pushing through pain and the phrase, “No Excuses” is thrown around A LOT, we pretty much think that’s bullshit and can be a lot more detrimental to your progress than beneficial.
Are there times when pushing through is totally acceptable? Absolutely! That's how strength is gained and progress is made. However, we feel that because of this commonly adopted mentality in fitness, we have been conditioned to ignore messages and signals that our bodies are telling us which can then lead to more issues down the road, to include burnout and injury.
