Well...T-Nation makes one think... It sometimes sucks (I know this is whining BUT...), but in the end it's you learn that you have to THINK for yourself. Lift to failure-train once a week vs. train a muscle 3-4 times a week. Eat 3 grams protein/kg - cycle protein and don't eat more than 2 grams/kg... Well, mr. Poliquin and mr. Dan John say you should do rounded back work. WSM competitors round their backs... exrx says round your back (well, half of it, at last). The old timers rounded their backs(wasn't mr. Hoffman considered the healthiest man in the world?). Lumberjacks and other rounded their backs... I guess I'll start doing light rounded back work (starting with 20-40 lbs- 20gm, 40 dead), lever extensions...and hypers. I know dr Squat (Fred Hatfield) advised some exercise which looked to me like a hyper...only that movement only took place in the spine. Well, wish me luck.
I read that injuries in general are caused by lack of recovery or not allowing enough time for adaptation...
I'll keep posting about my progress...and in a few months I hope to post a back pic in which my erectors do exist (right now they are invisible).
Strength and health,
