I loved this article. I have oesteoarthritis and the exercises and suggestions from the article on how to decrease knee pain was very helpful. I have saved the article in my favorites so I can refer to it each day.
While I agree at most of this content, I for sure dont agree with the title. YES. No pain, No gain. That is just the truth. It is painful to go from a 4,000 calorie diet everyday to a 1500. IT IS painful to do those lunges, back extensions and leg lifts! IT IS painful to do cardio that raises your heart rate to a fat burning rate. Fact of the matter, if a person's muscles are not tone and lean, it hurts. It SHOULD hurt - NOT a lot. But enough to say ...oooo, that hurts. If you are not in pain just enough to feel your muscle burning a little, there will be no progress. I KNOW this from Experience.
Thank you so much, I have been over doing it because I just want the pounds off!!!!!!!!!!!My resistance is very looooooow!!!!!! I had the flu this weekend!!!! I did not like that feeling ,so now I am ready to do it right! S L O W and EASY!!!!!
i have not exercised in I don't iknow how long. I just joined the 10 minute workout team. I have no clue where to begin, this article not only gave me a starting place (to strengthen areas I have not used), but also educated me in the importance of proper strengthening techniques
