hmmmm. BTW, I workout and lift heavy. But I can’t help fail to notice the constant injuries that occur(even with good form) on a constant basis.
Have you been injured because of weight lifting? Have you had a serious injury(knee/shoulder/back is considered serious)?
From my perspective G-D did not intend for you to lift 500 lbs 10 inches while lying on your back. Nor did he intend to curl a weight in 5 different positions 100 times a week for the rest of your life. I dont think your body is designed to do what you ask of it. Granted, the results are good, but at what cost.
Thanks for totally ignoring everything everbody said.
Either your ignorant, and refuse to learn, or your just a troll. I’m leaning troll.
Who the hell curls 5 different ways 100 times a week?
And don’t you think the big thing in the sky put us here to do whatever the hell we want? It’s not as if people who do bad things have bad things happen to them. The world doesn’t work on equivalent exchange, no matter how nice that sounds.
Lifting is healthy. If you injur yourself, your doing something wrong, or you had a brain fart, and dropped something (always a painful experience).
And no, I’ve never injured myself lifting. I have, however, injured myself while running for distance (nasty shin splints and a pulled hip). Since I’ve started dorsiflexions with DB’s, I haven’t gotten a single shin splint.
Most of the “injury” threads revovle around people having “brain farts” and making stupid mistakes. Like forgetting to rack a bar, forgetting to put a stopper on the plates, or just plain using way to much weight. Very few injuries are actually built up from constant and steady weight lifting. Their mostly “instant” type things.
Athletes who lift weight (IE: Oly and Power lifters) get injuries in meets. Athletic activity. Are you saying athletic activity is unhealthy?
