I have recently, due to schedule have had to switch from lifting in the afternoon to lifting early in the morning.
I came across an article that said Without pressure from sitting /standing,our disks swell up with CSF due to an osmotic pull. This basically elongates the spine and makes the ligaments a little more stretched than they would be otherwise -therefore more susceptible to injury.
This swelling is reduced to ~50% 30 minutes after rising, and 10% after 60 minutes.
If one stretches and does some warm up sets could this swelling be reduced quicker?
My back is not in best shape possible so this is important to me.
