I’m another long time reader/new poster so I’d like to thank everyone for the great info (and, of course, the banter which cracks me up!).
I’ve been working out for years and until this year I’ve never had an injury. I’ve always been careful about form although I never studied it in great detail. Now this year I’ve had tendonitis in my left bicep tendon up in the shoulder (which I had treated by an osteopath although it still aches frequently) and now I’ve got knee and hip pain; not serious but I’m not going to aggravate it.
Anyway, since I’m starting to take injury prevention far more seriously (stretching, flexibility, rotator cuff work, overall balance) I was thinking of buying one of Ian King’s “packs” which has videos, books etc on stretching, flexibility, “control drills” and a guides (presumably detailed) on the squat, bench and deadlift.
My question is, (and I know they are quite pricey) have any of you bought these and what did you think? Is Ian the person to listen to on this subject or do you have other preferences? could you recommend alternative books?
Thanks in advance.
