You Are NOT Smarter Than Your Body
Your body is beyond smart. Don’t forget to listen to it. Learn to distinguish “good” pain from “bad” pain. Lower back pain and shoulder injuries are some of the most frequently reported issues amongst CrossFitters – so pay special attention to these body parts. Pain is not just random. If you’re feeling serious sharp pain anywhere in your body, something is wrong and probably needs to be fixed. If you continue to work through the pain, you are soon going to be looking at the long road of rehab. The point is your body is smart. It will compensate for individual muscle weakness. You need to address each and every weakness you have in order to avoid increased imbalance and eventual injury.
