Working out is like dating, sometimes it’s great and other times it’s just plain painful. And just like dating, when it comes to working out you should never push through the pain. I mean, sure, you might think you’re tough and you can handle it, but let’s be real, you’re just going to end up with a broken heart (or in this case, a broken muscle).

When it comes to working out, if you’re feeling pain or discomfort in a muscle group, it’s time to take a break and let that muscle heal before you start swiping right (I mean working out) again. I know, it’s hard to resist the urge to hit the gym and flex your muscles, but trust me, it’s worth it in the long run. You don’t want to end up like that one guy who always shows up at the gym with a brace on his knee, do you?

Now, if you do find yourself injured, don’t worry, all is not lost. Just like how you can still date even if you’re not the best looking person in the room, you can still work out even if you’re injured. The key is to focus on the muscle groups that aren’t involved in the injury. For example, if you have a knee injury, you can still work on those guns (your arms) by doing some push-ups, pull-ups, and rows. That way, you can still show off your muscles at the beach, even if you can’t do any squats.

Another important thing to keep in mind when working out injured is to listen to your body. If a particular exercise is causing pain, stop doing it and try something else. Just like how you shouldn’t keep messaging that one person who never replies, you shouldn’t keep doing an exercise that’s causing you pain.

In conclusion, when it comes to working out, don’t push through the pain, take a break and let your muscles heal. And if you do find yourself injured, don’t worry, there are still plenty of fish in the sea (I mean muscle groups to work on). And always listen to your body, if it says no, it probably means no. Happy swiping (I mean working out)!
