Training Hurt Part II

Last week I wrote about training hurt - how to train around acute injuries.

Coincidentally, an article was published about training through nagging/chronic injuries over on EliteFTS.

Matt Rhodes, Hardcore or Dumbass.

It's worth noting this doesn't conflict with my earlier post. You can train around acute injuries. Busting a hand doesn't mean you can't train the other arm or the legs. But training through chronic injuries is all-too-common and much less smart. Matt Rhodes hits on why quite nicely...it batters you down in the long run, and keeps you from achieving your goals. Don't confuse training around an injury with training through one.
