    This was very pertinent for me, having experienced one of those minor "tweaks" on Monday. Thank you.

    Perhaps not, but you hit all the points. Fascinating: my audio CME has a section this month (well, June, actually--I'm always behind) on back pain, and they talked about pretty much exactly the same shit, right down to the miserable fucking senile dessication of the nucleus pulposis.

    Just not as well.

    Nice job.

    This is one I need to hear. Thanks--I'm sure a lot of people I know will find this helpful as well.

    This is great stuff Mark. You may not be a MD, but you are a specialist. That was a explanation that made sense to me, from a strength coach who deals in weight training, this is excellent advice for the average guy out there lifting awkward loads in the workplace and at home.

    Your training program;

    1. Shows how to lift loads correctly.

    2. Prevent back injuries due to the strength gained by lifting weights.

    3. Can be used for the rehabilitation of back injuries.

    4. Offer various strategies that can be adapted for the workforce in general.

    You have a gift for explaining complex issues, and I certainly hope you can continue to pass on those injury prevention techniques in the wider community.

    Thanks for taking the trouble to make this pod-cast available to us out here in the wider world.

    Your section on SI injuries and their response to lifting is spot on from my experience. I spent a year where I only lifted here and there and my SI joint injury got worse and worse to the point where doctors were sending me for x-rays, ultrasounds and colonoscopies.

    Started back from the basics with a strong focus on form and less than 2 months later my pain is down to a mild, occasional stiffness. At one point the pain my stomach and groin was so bad I was convinced I had cancer or something!

    Also liked the talk about how you're way more likely to injure your back outside of the gym, doing something like bending to tie your shoe. Also 100% true in my experience.

    Yup. Concise, thorough, and understandable by just about anybody. This is very useful information for anyone interested in keeping their spines healthy.

    Thank you so much Rip. Say, I'm going to be in your neck of the woods coming up and I wouldn't mind sharing some of this good scotch I've been drinking lately (as I'm also something of a connoisseur). Can't say I would mind getting in a squat session at the one-and-only WFAC either. Hope that this can be arranged!

    Thanks again,
    Trent

    You meant to say something similar to, "Prevent back injuries by the strength gained due lifting weights"? Otherwise it sounds rather frightening.

    No. What I said was, Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength Training Program prescribed in "Starting Strength Basic Barbell Training" done according to the manner described therein will prevent back injuries out there in the wider world of general domestic and industrial lifting due to the strength gained by lifting weights in the gym. (Thats the long version)
