The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Pain is inevitable, right?  But how do you distinguish between the pain you should push through and the pain that's a red flag?  Dr. Sean Pastuch, founder of Active Life RX, gives Joe De Sena his 4 rules for pain assessment. He also talks about the importance of seeking out and overcoming some kinds of pain in our life. When assessing pain Pastuch says there are four important terms you need to understand - Insult, Irritation, Pain and Injury.  Whether you're taking on a Spartan race or planning your workout understanding pain is critical to your growth.
