    squats

    does anyone know if doing squats will take a toll on your body as you get older? will doing heavy squats mean that your knees and back will have problems later in life?

    I am no expert but I think its safe to assume that doing heavy squats would impact your future. Takes a toll on your joints. But then again I don't see any of the old timers limping around.
    My personal opinion is Yes (thats to doing heavy squats pushing your body each time for years)

    OK OK If you take care of your knees warm up leg extensions are a must. A belt and knee wraps powerlifting wraps tight very tight some say it takes away from your strenth but I think that is BS wrap,strech,warm up

    Ok Hey make your lower back strong I mean REAL strong think about it

    I understand but if your massage is nice and happy n sweet your not getting your moneys worth you should be sore the next day when that is gone then the GOOD relaxed open pain free feeling will make it all worth it

    Where I live, you can get it for 40 bucks an hour, and it is by far the best kind of pain in the freaking world.


    And to the OP, when I was in school I pushed myself too hard and wasn't experienced enough to know how important form was when lifting. My lower back paid the price for several years, but I'm back in the swing of things now. Just always keep your form foremost and you'll be ok.

    Dude your disks do NOT refill... If you blow a disk it's screwed. Squatting will make your back stronger as long as done with good form.
