Overexertion And Overuse
Overexertion of the muscles can lead to an overuse injury like a muscle strain. If individuals work out too intensely after a long period without working out, or they engage in heavy active fitness and muscle training of the same muscle groups for too many days in a row, they'll be more likely to suffer an injury. Some individuals experience soreness in their muscles following intensive workouts. In much rarer cases, overexerting the muscles can cause such a severe tear that they need to be surgically repaired. If individuals do develop a muscle strain as a result of overexertion, it might happen during their workout or physical labor job. It's common for individuals to describe hearing a snapping or popping noise. This occurs when the muscle tissue has been stretched to such a large extent that it snaps. The pop or snap also tends to be accompanied by pain. Not all strains will come with a snap or pop, and some strains might not even cause obvious tearing to the muscle fibers.
