Pain threshold


People say "No pain, no gain" but what extent should we take this when practicing? I try to work on my rudiments and push myself to get faster and work on speed. However, how much pain is good? I usually go until I feel a burning sensation in my hands, arms, and wrists but I don't know whether or not this is healthy. I don't want to limit myself though but at the same time I don't want to injure myself. Does anyone have a good solution for this?

Does the burning sensation stop when you rest?

Well yeah it stops when I rest but as I continue to play, it builds up. I'm afraid if I go any harder I might injure myself or sacrifice my form and playing. My question was: How far do you push yourself to maximize gains while at the same time minimizing the risk of injury?

Well it sounds like simple muscle fatigue, which is not necessarily harmful (especially with light weights, like drumsticks). It is unlikely that you will cause any significant injury...but I do imagine that your form would deteriorate...As with exercise, there will be a point when you cannot maximize your gain any further, as the body does have its limits...

I would think that as I push myself more and more my muscles will develop and I'll be able to last for a longer period of time with my drum strokes.
