No pain, no gain is the mantra of most athletes – professional, CrossFit, or weekend warriors – and even those who infrequently visit fitness clubs and local gyms. But is it an effective strategy? No. It’s actually a self-defeating strategy because when your muscles are engaged in strenuous physical exercise, if there is too little magnesium (which causes muscle relaxation), muscle cramps and a buildup of lactic acid can result. Because everyone thinks pain during heavy exercise is inevitable, nobody has looked at how to prevent it from happening. And it can be prevented.
