How to “Listen to Your Body” During a Workout — When to Stop & When to Keep Pushing When exercising, it’s very important to listen to the signals that your body sends about what is happening. These signals will tell you if you are pushing yourself hard enough or if you are holding back. We always tell you guys to “listen to your body” while you’re working out Find out exactly what that means; how to know when to push yourself & when to stop.

Getting bruises during workouts, especially those involving equipment, is typical but it shouldn’t be too much that you’re black and blue in places. But when you notice a bruise, particularly after feeling a twinge in the area, even when you didn’t bump into anything, you should stop your workout. If you experience severe tightness or pain which persists during the workout, decrease the intensity, decrease the distance and stretch mid-run. If your symptoms subside, return to your normal workout the next day and listen to your body during the warm-up and workout. However, if the symptoms continue, rest from running for approximately 48 hours.

Learning to Listen to Your Body Your body will tell you when you need to slow down and when you need to stop everything and take a well deserved rest. Pushing past that point may work for a little while, but the longer you ignore these alarm signals from your body, the louder it will scream at you to slow down and just do nothing. Many doctors who are not well versed in exercise, or any kind of sports related injury, so they may play it “safe” and tell you to stop doing the very thing that is causing you pain.

I mean, when it comes down to it, it makes sense! I recommend the following tips when you decide to listen to your body, and not your doctor. Get a second opinion.

In other words, when you’re putting in the workout time, it’s your mind you need to condition to get past that moment when you want to quit. (Because mental fatigue can seriously affect your workout.) Here’s why: With every step or rep, your muscles are sending signals to the brain, telling it what they need in order to keep going-namely, oxygen and other fuel-and reporting their level of fatigue. Listen to Your Body When we work out and train to improve our fitness, our body has the wonderful ability to give us different signals about how it feels. It tells us when we are supporting it properly so it can perform in the way we would like it to, and it can give us timely guidance when further support is needed, for example, when it. You should feel encouraged to listen to your body and supported in doing what you need to do to be strong. If it hurts, stop.

This seems really straightforward but I can’t tell you how many people I know who push through the pain. If you feel sharp pain or discomfort during any type of workout, don’t keep going. It’s important to listen to your body and what it’s really saying.

Don’t listen, and your exercise could wind up working against you, actually triggering muscle loss and fat gain. Plus, pushing too hard comes with a huge risk of injury-and all of your training won’t do you much good if you’re sidelined on race day.

  • I work 60 hour weeks regularily and I work security. I do a 30 minute jog every morning and I go to the park on my day off every week and do meditation and jogging. I’m in good shape with a bmi of 8% and I usually sleep 6-8 hours a day so I’m up and moving around all day any day. Just doing a 10 minute jog every morning with some reps of pushups, squats and situps will keep you in good shape, I weigh about 170 pounds and I’m 5 foot 4 and I have decent amount of muscle to have a press of 200 ibs in bench press and deadlift of 255 and squats of 200 not including bar. I hope yall make small increments, because if you have a spare 20 minutes a day you can make a big difference

  • I’m confused about my arms going back and not out to the side. I don’t understand what the motion is suppose to be. I can’t seem to do that. I can do like 3 push ups with my arms to the sides but no more. I can’t even come close to doing one with my arms going slightly back. My body doesn’t feel like it was made to do that

  • Bullshit, ive been an amateur body builder and have worked out for close to 20 years, taking a week or 2 off after training regularly will lead to stronger muscles and overall its recommended you do this to let your body rest and rebuild. I dont start seeing any strength losses til about week 3-4. Your data is BS, delete your channel now ��

  • Since i do jump rope, I don’t do any weight lifting except pullups. Because i spend too much time to improve pullups, no way i gonna let my reps go down ��

  • Forget about the number. Concentrate on the effect, and hitting failure. Forget all about how many. It’s a liberation. You start doing them right!

  • I feel like gymnastics coaches each their students to hollow out there backs and push up,not al this completely straight body stuff.

  • It’s not as hard as it sounds, but be careful. I damaged my shoulder 2 weeks in and had to let it recover because i went from 0 pushups a day straight to 100 a day. Work your way up to it, THEN do 100 a day just to say you did it.

  • What’s the reason for not flaring your elbows out? Doesn’t the elbows out position bring your chest muscles more into play and develop your chest muscles more?

  • Could you address the results of people like Hershel ‘Walker and others who do over a thousand pushups a day and are chiseled? I do understand the argument in muscle development and the recovery of the muscles but it certainly does seem to work for these men. Thanks for your input. I do like the naturalness of your conditioning and would like to be there myself. Glenn

  • I’m not training for a race I’m training for life I’m callusing my mind…….. the most profound words I’ve heard in a long time from somebody

  • technique demonstrated is correct, however, partial rep pushups are much harder and more effective. anyone who hasn’t tried it should. keep the range very small, somewhere in between all the way down and all the way up. the constant tension will give you a burn and pump like you’ve never had with a regular pushup as shown here.

  • Take a tip from me, a bro scientist. It’s basically the brain surgeon of shitty general doctors that is exercise scientists. Just do them damn push ups, preferably on multiple supplements, gnar pump, and for the real gym rats, drunk. BOOSH, BOOSH, BOOSH.

  • People who don’t like sports because they don’t like to walk will get a chance to get this result! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qz5ZNJfLWNc

  • Great video. It inspired me and I did my workout every day, since April 02, 2020. Now on August 02, 2020, I lost almost 40 lbs in 4 months!!! Please check: @rZS8​

  • Body straight, butt puckered, knees locked, head in neutral position, elbows in, all the way down, all the way up until elbows locked.

  • His form isn’t even perfect… he does not activate his core by switching from anterior pelvic tilt to posterior pelvic tilt; the former causes him to get the most amount of pressure on his lower back and that is not a good thing. Just check out Calisthenicmovement for the real perfect pushup.

  • I love captain America and goggins is like him because captain America is like I can do this all day when he going through hard times

  • I can’t seem to keep my elbows in during a push up. I don’t know if it’s just because I have absolutely no upper body strength or if my arms just won’t bend that way.

  • My anxiety is telling me I’ll be flat on my face and lose a tooth doing push ups, so I chose to eat my snacks to exercise my teeth for future injuries.

  • I was wondering if he can still stand after accumulating all that damage. He is standing at 3:23. Also looks to me like he can walk normally for a few steps at least.

  • i know people might have realized this already but i have a hard time myself, everytime i do 50 pushups, around 30 id drop my head down and i cant stop it

  • A lot of people are misunderstood. If you train for years building some nice muscle and then have 3 weeks off in a row you won’t lose much muscle and will just gain it back within a week when you train again, will also take a few days to gain your strength back. Even after a couple of months. It’s when you spend several years training then stop for a full year or so, that’s when you will see big changes in your size and strength but even after that it won’t take that long to gain it all back.

  • Yesterday i did 300 on 6 sets of 50, 10-20 reps are just not doing it for me, i need more strain. I am fat as fuck but upper body is going lean, it’s the belly fat that needs to go.

  • His book “Can’t Hurt Me” changed my life. If anyone out there is reading this comment I seriously suggest go buy this book and read every single line. This man is honest to the core. The war against yourself just like he teaches is the best battle you will ever win.

  • You know, this happen to my cousin except he didn’t have many fat cells, he become skinnier cause of an knee accident and suffered from Pneumonia.

  • 8:44 “one of the reasons my wife and I don’t have kids is… I firmly believe you need something that is brutal, is difficult, is hardship, it knocks you off-center…” hahahahaaaa… just have kids bro, the answer is right in front of you.

  • i havent worked out for 6 weeks.. my max used to be 270lbs bench.. then i tried 300lbs and pushed it up.. easy.. idk why but i got stronger from
    doing nothing.. lol

  • Bullshit!! While doing push up you have to be in posterior pelvic tilt, meaning that you have to squeeze your ass and abs. The guy demonstrating the movement is clearly not doing that.

  • I’m trying to work out right now in my room it’s 2 am in the morning in there is no one here in this portion except me…i watched this vid it motivated me to work out right now….so i was warming up, doing pushups….nd i felt a presence of an unknown entity in my room which is completely paranormal and now i am afraid to get of my bed bcuz I keep hearing stuff around me…like there is someone around except me…shooot!! Nd i just heard a dog howling nearby….nd it was weirdddd….can’t sleep too but also i want to workout right now mannn…this is f,ed up…

  • Listen to your body, it’s not reps that count but the proper form, quality is more important here, don’t rush keep breathing and take essential rest in between!!! Good luck ��

  • You lose hair too i did nose surgery stopped exercising made me depressed i hate sitting in home, i lost weight by deep thinking and hair, so im back at exercising now i feel better than ever

  • If you do it with 100 squats, 100 situps, combined with a 10 km run, your hair will fall out and you will possess the ability to smite your enemies with one punch. Hope that provides some clarity.

  • I can do like 4×25 pushups i’m not sore after that. I can probably do another 25 push ups
    I do 5 minutes rest between every set.
    So what’s the best thing to do after.

  • I started jogging in 2015 until September 2018. Then started jogging again this May 2019, I noticed my 6 mins per kilometer before is now 8 mins per kilometer. Before, I can jog for 11 kms in an hour and a few mins but now, it is only 7.5 kms in an hour. The endurance that I have built for years, I just lost in 7 months. Now, I regret stopping jogging.

  • I stopped workingout for 2 years… I feel aches and twitching all over my body muscles and joints…. Now im back to the gym hopping to get my strength back

  • It’s not meant for strength it’s meant for burning fat and building size not strength. Strength training requires increasing weight being lifted, muscle building is same weight more reps.

  • I have stopped working out for about 9 months because of my studies but the change i notice is i have become more lazy and more SLIM than earlier but my abs and muscles power is normal as it was earlier HOPE IT HELPED YOU.

  • i remember when im 12 yrs old my highest push ups is 25 when im playing basketball actively and now im 15 i can do 2-3 push up wtf bcos im not playing basketball anymore..

  • First off, im sorry this comment is so long-but if you can find it in yourself to keep reading let me tell you:

    Listen to this man. He knows wtf he’s talking about. i agree and understand everything he says. it’s not a joke, it’s not exaggerated. he’s the real fucking deal, and i can tell you-I have made that journey. I enlisted in the army when I was a kid 18yrs old. Trained in constant martial arts since I was a child, trained with marines and seals under different environments, and it’s my belief that a lifetime of kung fu and training came into play in determining my survival in what you’re about to read-if you continue reading this. There’s a reason I love david goggins, and i’ve only recently discovered him. He is so fucking real. You don’t even know.

    in 2011 I fell off a 60FT cliff and shattered my feet, ankles, snapped off my heels, broke my legs, hands, left arm, and my spine. I sat in a body cast for 6MONTHS, and a wheel chair for almost 2YEARS. They botched my surgeries and destroyed all hope of recovery, and almost had my legs amputated. I had A team of 10DOCTORS and numerous therapists and nurses telling me i’d never walk again, run again, jump again, play guitar and piano, or work again. I died twice through the ordeal in terms of loss of pulse. -but hearing what they told me killed me inside.

    I was condemned for life. I wanted to kill myself. I even grabbed a rope and hook to end it all-and guess what I couldn’t stand up to the job. I was trapped in a prison of flesh with no escape. no hope. no job. no money. no family except a mean marine brother, and a fistful of loving friends.

    My brother who is 100% pure marine used to write me these emails and messages, and the only consisted of one line which read, “Get the fuck up.” I would read his notes and cry and get angry. “I can’t man, fuck you, I can’t aren’t you listening?? -every doctor ive seen has said the same thing. I’m never getting back up again.” -But he was persistent and would just reply, “Get the fuck up.” -Knowing damm good and well I was fated never to stand again.

    As time progressed i learned to crawl on the floor on my hands and knees. Then I learned to stand on my knees. One day, despite the intensity of the pain, and pencil thin, atrophied, mutilated legs-I was able to pull myself up on a dresser and stand up. The agony was insane, and it only lasted for a second-but I stood up.

    So at one point i was trapped on the top floor apartment in my bed for months and couldn’t get up or handle my life sentence. One day i had to get my pain medicine, and i had left it in the kitchen. I just kept staring at the kitchen thinking, “man if i could just walk 15FT, just 15FT.” my roommate left garbage everywhere and I couldn’t get to the kitchen in my wheel chair.

    As I sat on the edge of my bed I kept saying just 15FT, and suddenly I was consumed by rage. I grabbed my wheel chair and threw it across the living room. -And stood up on my broken, mutilated legs. With every bit of rage, will, and guts I took a step and started screaming at the top of my lungs. The pain was worse than the accident itself. I dragged my right leg 1 inch, and shuffled the left 1 inch, and kept screaming with spit flying out of my mouth and every bad word you can think of. -And I began to walk. 1 INCH at a time.

    I made it to the kitchen only to realize my medicine wasn’t there, it had been left on the book shelf next to my bed. So I turned around screamed my way back to the book shelf, grabbed my medicine, turned around, went back to the kitche, took my medicine, and walked back to bed screaming every step of the way.

    my first walk was 60FT the same height as the cliff I fell off in Austin Texas.

    I spent 11YEARS as a shaolin monk working my ass off in the hot sun at home in texas, 9YEARS trying to recover as an intractable pain patient. I’m in permanent pain. it never turns off. it’s always on.

    I spent years working the soil, gardening, and caring for my animals and elderly mother, and work n sweat got me mobile.

    FastForward to 2019, my body is still broken im eating morphine and oxycodone everyday all day just to get out of bed and keep from dying. One day a very special friend walked back into my life and inspired me, and i realized this ain’t fucking good enough. This broken body ain’t good for shit. I’m gonna die on my back if I don’t get the fuck up.

    -And that’s when my training started.

    once against all odds i got the fuck up and started training. i can’t express to you the pain of training with permanently broken feet, and metal parts. one of the things i love about goggins is that he knows-he understands the agony and torture of operating on broken feet. broken legs. a totaled spine. It was murder. -But i decided-i made it up my mind-this broken life and body wasn’t good enough. not for me, and not for the people I love.

    Today my training consists of running miles every morning, pt, pushups, situps, pullups, crunches, weights, you name it. Everyday I work out in pain, but always getting better and stronger.

    I can walk again, run again, jump again, play instruments again, and all the things they said i’d never do again. i trained so hard that i toughened my body up agaisnt insane levels of pain. i used to walk around in the snow barefooted to toughen up my feet. -And work out in the blazing texas sun to get harder and more resiliant against the pain and elements.

    i’m at the point that im on less than half the medicine i needed to get up, and im proud to say i was able to step down from oxycodone. When I stepped down from oxycodone the pains that emerged from my body were fucking incredible and crippling, and i literally had to START OVER. -But im back up, training, and running everyday, and i’m only getting stronger. Pain is no longer holding me back.

    Don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do. You control your fate, you control your body and you do it with the power of your mind. You want power?? You got all the power you need up between your ears. You can overcome shit the world will refuse to believe is possible. -But if you put your mind heart and soul into the gas tank and drop the clutch, you can destroy the obstacles the world has set before you.

    Discovering David was an amazing experience for me, because we say so much of the same shit, and had a lot of the same experiences like our childhoods and shit. But he wasn’t held back. Before I discovered David I felt so alone in my experience. Like nobody out there could understand what it felt like to push yourself beyond human limits and overcome inconceivable pain to adapt and overcome.

    David wasn’t satisfied being a fatass spraying roaches, and I wasn’t satisfied being a cripple living on meds alone. Never give up. Never surrender. Never let people’s words hold you back. You decide your limits. It’s up to you to break those limits.

    Be strong. Believe Strong. True Fucking Will Power.

  • Did tons of pushups every day at basic training went from 54 to 78 pushups in two minutes. Seemed to work pretty good for all of us.

  • Tbh I feel this, I never knew who he was or what he has done, none of it matters to me… what matters to me is he found the drive to be who he is… most of what was said where things I had to find in myself by myself… it make me remember about the time in 7th grade I had to write a report on who my greatest role model was… I Titled it as, Who, because I had no one as a role model, no one I looked at for strength or guidance, besides the person I wanted to be… I thank whatever brought this to me… it reminds me that, I need to keep trying to be the best me for me because of me, because who else will be there in the darkest places in our minds, who… no one…
    Thanks to everyone

  • still the wrong way. this variation focuses on the triceps. u have to angle the palms 45 degrees outwards. this works both the pecs and the triceps

  • Homie has a lot of anterior pelvic tilt, especially when his feet are on the bench. Focus on rotating your pelvis toward your feet to flatten that lower back, keeping your glutes and core tight. Don’t sacrifice form to get more repetitions!

  • Makes me angry and sad hearing the stories of his school years, this man is a legend having to endure racist words from a piece of shit is unbelievable in a school. Hope the bastard that did that is now a fat,poor middle age failure. I could live a 100 years on this earth and still don’t get people’s cruelty.

  • Judo Judo (Japanese for “the gentle way”) emphasizes winning in combat by using your opponent’s weight and strength as weapons against him, while preserving your own mental and physical energy. It embodies the principle that good technique can win out over sheer strength.

  • This video is made by stupid uneducated people? Lol none of the infos given are true, unless they mean stop exercising = eat trash and stay in bed 24/24.
