Don't Make the Pain Face



Ahh the pain face/pain cave. We all have our very own pain face that is unique to us. While some are prettier than others, they all send the same message. I’M IN A WORLD OF HURT!

The pain face is something we should try to avoid for a few of reasons.

· You’re communicating to your brain that what you are doing is really hard (though it may be). We need to train our brains that whatever the external stimulus is we can handle it. The brain then will realize that this may not be as bad as I thought.

· You don’t want your competition to know you are struggling. When predators smell the fear, that’s when they pounce.

· You should be focused on breathing and it’s even harder to do that when your face is all contorted. (I’ll talk more on breathing in another post)

If you look at elite athletes and how they perform at their max intensities you may notice something. You’ll notice that they make it look effortless. They rarely make a pain face! This obviously takes practice at being extremely efficient at their chosen sport but they are mentally strong as well. Staying externally calm will boost your performance!

My challenge to you is to keep your face relaxed throughout your workout. Start with the warm up and practice there. There are some people even making the pain face with submaximal loads. Don’t do it! Then practice keeping that pain face away even when you are nearing the end of a brutal AMRAP. Your face and your brain should be the calm in the eye of the storm.
