    the pump

    am i right in thinking its that pain you get when you really push it hard to failure????

    Like today i was working my shoulders to the point where after my final reps i had to crouch down and hold the floor cos my shoulders were throbbing...


    ....i even started to shake a little.

    Yes that is the feeling of the blood rush into the working muscle (the pump)

    if you dont get a good pump it doesnt mean your not getting a good workout though

    Never actually feel the "pump" in my chest to be honest but most other areas i do...


    at first i wasnt a big fan of the pain lol but now i love collapsing into a heap of sweat and pain at the end of my sessions.


    believe.

    Much of the actual pain/burn is caused by lactic acid.

    Yeah, I get the same thing when doing standing push press. If not injury related, it means your getting your money's worth out of that gym membership.lol
