1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Discs can heal. You just need a damn good physio to get you there. And it takes time.

    If the pain is really bad and you can't get through physio, then you might ask your doc for a cortisone shot.

    Like skeen said, back stuff is really not worth messing with. Take time to rehab it right and if you can't ever get back to training heavy, so be it. Chances are your lifting days aren't over.

    The disc can go back in but the annulus fibrosis is weakened forever
    Big risk the disc goes out again

    And regardless it will get more degenerate every time you load it, the mechanics are altered.

    Risk:reward is way too high to keep going

    That's what happens when you get a bunch of geeks who suddenly decide after adolescence that they want to become physically robust

    Phenotype is determined partly by genetics, partly by childhood activity/environment
    Very difficult to change it in adulthood without drugs (or even with drugs if its bad enough)

    goal is to work up to 4s in the deadlift within 3 months and 5 by the end of the year

    physically feel as if i could pull 405 for 1 right now but do not want to subject my untrained ass (literally) and hamstrings to that abuse

    :lol: I don't know what gym you go to, but mine does not feature hard-ons and hairy assholes.

    I'm still chuckling from that Veni … that was pretty good.

    I read a quote by a an elite soccer coach who said that most people who quit due to injuries when they go from amateur to pro do so because they don't have the capacity to handle the training load, and that they cannot change it at that point. Like most skills you develop that capacity early in life. The thing that bothers me now is that I trained very cautiously (for powerlifting, that is), with perfect technique, etc. I guess it was just too much. I could've held back more when I got the first signs.


    Yes. I use the regular hyperextension every session.

    I will probably focus on general athleticism and aesthetics for a while now.

    Regular hyper != Reverse hyper

    Total game changer for lower back issues... my chiro/ART guy said he's lost a few patients to the reverse hyper

    That is weird.... I thought the reverse hyper would be a back nuker. Such an unnatural way to load the lumbar spine

    ...it doesn't load/compress the spine

    Not axially, but there is definitely some shear loading which can be as bad or worse.

    It's basically the only movement that puts the lumbar in extension while causing traction instead of compression. I do a couple light or unloaded sets before and after every squat and deadlift session. Feels amazing.

    But there are a couple guys at my gym who have lumbar issues and the rev hyper isn't helping them.

    Could you (or anyone else) possibly explain/clarify this for me? I do a lot of exercises and fitness, but really do not have much of the technical knowledge of some the information here. I have some lumbar issues and am curious how to do this extension/traction you are referring to.
