You probably wouldn't think twice about seeing these hashtags in a fitness post, but I'd argue that these mentalities can do more harm than good.
If you've been following me for any length of time, you know that I'm not a fan of these fitness norms. Not only do they conflict with your body's natural healing process, but they also tend to drive guilt-driven exercise. They can actually lead to regression, joint damage, weight gain, and an overall less healthy system.
I know there are so many who struggle with this feeling that you have to work more and more and harder and harder to see results and feel like you've done "enough."
And it's truly not your fault. This mindset is infused into the fitness culture.
If you've made exercise a lifestyle, you've been exposed to this mindset and have probably created a hard-wired circuit that becomes difficult to break.
