i was lately thinking about this: deadlifting and squatting and more generally loading the backbone is going to put pressure on it (obviously). this pressure would result in a compression of the vertebrae..
therefore i was thinking that it would probably be wise to "decompress" the backbone and therefore the vertebrae through some periods of complete deload: i.e. no squat nor deadlift for a week after 3 weeks of workout, or after 6 weeks or whatever..
i was unable to find any information regarding the subject, any study where it is explained how vertebrae work under load and such or any indication regarding deload periods in order to keep a healthy backbone..
what do you guys think?
what is your experience on the matter?
do you have any link on studies/articles..?
thanks everyone for the input!
