Hey everyone, was hoping for some insight.
Recently, my schedule has changed so that I am locked to training at 6am. I wake up at 5:20 and eat and by 6 I am hitting the weights.
I have heard numerous reports and studies that suggest our backs are very vulnerable to injury, namely our spines, while training first thing in the AM.
I saw that we have fluid between our vetebrae first thing in the AM and this increases pressure in the spine significantly while performing exercises where you bend over.
Thing is, I cannot imagine excluding things such as deads or squats!
Can anyone elaborate on this? Also, I would love to be directed to some research or articles that explain this issue or oppose this issue.
As always, thanks in advance!
