It is the Bro way of saying "Don't worry about the pain, Its just the ripping and repairing of the muscle, go through the pain bro"
I say that the bro or hoe, is talking crap...
If there is pain or bad movement during exercise, bodyweight or otherwise, the movement should be modified or stopped.....You should not go through the pain BRO..
Failure to stop when you have pain could result in using a compensation pattern, which in the long term will make the problem worse.... STOP LISTENING TO THE BRO..!
The thing is, if you get the right trainer who doesn't like to feed his or her own EGO by making you lift more, to make them look good, your gains (or losses) will be what you need/want.
So, How do you know if it is the right trainer..?
This trainer (not a bro or hoe) will make sure that they regress or progress the exercise for your aim be it FAT LOSS or STRENGTH GAIN...
The trainer, will NOT continue to make you lift more weight to feed their ego and tell you that it is a confidence builder to make you feel good...(make them feel good!)
So what happens when you get injured from lifting and having shit form because your trainer likes to feed their EGO..?
Yep, that's right, you get injured, cancel sessions and they get another unwitting client...
So what can you do about it..?
Find the right trainer, someone who holds you back a little and takes you on a journey (not a quick fix).
Take a look at this a link to a guy who has a sustainable weight loss and injury free journey... this is what i mean when it comes to the no BRO approach..

So then, how do you come back from an injury..?
(and win the British champs)
This is something that i was asked, so i thought i would put something together on the journey of a strength athlete.. (Me)
On the 21st December i had a knee operation and was out of action for 8 weeks (lifting any heavy weight)
This is when the injury rehabilitation journey started and my road to winning the title of British Powerlifting Champion 2017 begun..
The idea is simple, you just need to do what the Personal Trainer/rehab/physio tells you to do..
Work on the following principles:
**Mobility, stability, Strength, power, speed, athlete..**
If you work on these and stay loyal to the parameters i.e get mobile and stable before you work on strength, you will smash it..
Prior to the operation i conducted around 8 weeks of post operative strength and conditioning work, to make sure my body was ready to come back in the quickest time possible.
And this is how i did it...
I ensured that i conducted all movements through full range (that mobility allowed) and worked on the same principals we give to our clients to make sure they LOSE WEIGHT, GAIN MUSCLE....but more importantly they stay injury free, as this is the aim of all training, regardless of your aim in your head.
If you do it right, you will make minor changes on an almost daily basis to ensure that you are not going to far or sometimes you may need to change it up, as you may need to be pushed further.
