Pain is not good, after or before training. I’ve just signed up two new clients with complaints that they were suffering from pain after their personal training sessions with other fitness companies.
I offered a £25 trial session where I can assess their movements and come to an understanding of what kind of training routine are they are following!
The results of these assessments were pretty shocking as some of the more technical exercises like deadlifts, stiff leg deadlifts and (much to my despair) overhead presses were wrong. I never blame the client in these cases. No client should ever feel ashamed if they have been taught how to execute exercises wrong. This is why I am here.
Apparently the trainer was advising on movements but clearly let the poor client execute everything wrong when using heavy weights (which can be very dangerous)
Personally, I think this is unacceptable for personal trainers and coaches to not educate themselves and then their clients properly and let them continue doing things in the wrong way!
Are you in pain after training or exercising?
If your answer is yes than you need to consider that you may be training with the wrong trainer.
If you are training by yourself and you are feeling pain, it might be that you need some education on stances and balancing your body weight to ensure a workout is safe.
It is your responsibility to look after your body and ask for second opinions from personal trainers, chiropractors, physios etc.
