Good article Steven. I just wish someone had explained all that to me thirty years ago particularly this bit.....

Often if you have sore joints or tendons are starting to become sore, this is when you should know that you should back off from exercise. This is often a sign of excessive volume. Continuing to train through this may often lead to more detrimental overuse, and if continued beyond that chronic overuse which is very difficult to get rid of. This will also hinder your training significantly, so it is not advisable ever to push through any type of pain.
