We've all done it from time to time.  It's starts with the warm-up sets.  Throw 95lbs on the bar for bench press and the shoulder feels a little wonky.  Throw 135 on the bar.  Same deal.

Well, it hurts a little but not bad enough to stop me.  

Then you proceed to finish the entire bench session with a little shoulder pain.  Is this bad?  Am I setting myself up for failure?  In today's episode we go over a little study that helped shed some light on just how risky it may be to push through pain and injury when training.
