This is a just a thought as to why some gain better than others. Everyone reacts different
to pain, thats a given, and I think that may make all the difference in the world.
When stretching it is recommended to stretch to the point of mild discomfort. Now, here is
my theory, what I consider mild discomfort may actually be severe pain for some. If thats
true the stretch I do will promote gains for me, yet another person does the same stretch
and has no or very limited gains. So is it possible that the higher the tolerance the better
the gains? Now this doesn’t mean if you have low tolerance to pull harder, you would increase
your chance of hurting yourself, you never want to push the pain barrier. This was just a
thought, hopefully I got the point across, I am not very good at writing. I would like to
know what everyone thinks of this.

Good topic for both forums.
Very good post. I think you have hit on one of the basic tenets of PE. The variations in the pain tolerance of individuals relates directly to the amount of stress that can be placed on each individuals unit. I have always advocated, no pain. But for some, it could be a matter of the amount of stress without pain is not sufficient to allow for gains.
Jut to add to the thread. I usually allow slight pain(discomfort) and thats where I usually gain.

What do you mean? It was very well written and it is a very interesting point you make.
I have a low pain threshold. If it hurts, I won’t do it. Maybe it is why I am a slow gainer.
