Dr. Alex is at it again. Many of our patients ask “should I stop working out?” Commonly, the response is “if it hurts don’t do it, but you can train around your pain while we are working on…” Check out Dr. Alex’s Train Around Pain Series!
Week 1: This week we discuss some work arounds for performing cleans, presses and other barbell exercises that might cause wrist or shoulder soreness.
Week 2: Are pull-ups causing your wrists, elbows, or shoulders to hurt? We demonstrate 3 other variations to help train around your pain. If these still irritate your muscles or joints, find a qualified professional, like us, to help diagnose and fix the problem.
Week3: This week on Train Around Pain we discuss some alternative pulling and pushing movements. These can be substituted in place of other row or pull up exercises. The second exercise is a great alternative to overhead press and bench press.
Week 4: Leg day, squats and deadlifts, can be painful to some low backs and/or knees. We cover some great sled exercises that will challenge the lower body and core while keeping the spine in a safe position.Tags: barbell exercises, bench press, cleans, core, deadlift, elbow pain, joint, knee, low back pain, muscle, pain, pull-ups, rows, shoulder, wrist
