There’s two exercises that are big contributing factors.
Bench press and The dead lift two simple exercises that people spend way too much time on.
the deadlift is performed without the most useful part of the movement being the negative whereby they just drop the bar to the floor.

the bench press where the shoulder blades are mainly pinned to the bench.

most PLers spend too much time mimicking or training the movement simple movement too.

a powerlifters career would last much longer if they spent more time just doing proper exercise a 30 min session once or twice a week.

and just upping the ante when getting close to a meet.

Fucked up Kunce
It may last longer but would they be as successful in comps. That is the ultimate goal isn’t it?

Post 5/3/1 BBB was when my Sciatica started. I got to a 265 Deadlift. Never again.

Look at all the PLs who come and go, like shooting stars.

a lot longer.
i a bloke starts at 15~20 and trains smart and is patient he’s got 20 years to reach his peak in strength

Well the question is how long term is it?
it’s usually the deadlift that fucks things up Lifting hips before shoulders and such and with the spinal erectors not all pulling in the right directions twisting the spine, eventually and rather suddenly pop goes a disc, they have no idea what they’re doing.

powerlifters need to spend time doing and watching Olympic lifting.
 
You aren’t much of a lifter

are you 5 years old you dumb bastard?

no actually you make a 5 year old sound super smart, you aren’t very smart are you?

There's a lot of good points in your post Goo. I suffered severe Back spasms earlier this year, requiring strong pain meds. I put it down to twisting of the Spine (Sport specific stuff). Therapist got me doing S.L.Ds again.

I should note I was diagnosed with degeneration and arthritis in the Back along with bulging discs lol.

there is no doubt the deadlift is the primary low back exercise along with dips and chins it’ll go a long way to improve the integrity of the muscles that track up and down the back.

one huge mistake lifters and power lifters make is NOT including the most productive part of the exercise- the “negative portion” they just drop it ffs.

side bends (and I mentioned often) are an excellent exercise to bridge the gap for a strong back.

but I always stress strongly that to do all this one must be patient and to make sure that if one wants to get in shape- you first need to be in shape.

that quote will mean nothing to a young beginner and in a lot of cases a seasoned lifter too, some folks are lucky and some aren’t.
 
If ones back is shot, the safest way to build incredible back strength is MedX or Kieser (same Machine) low back machine.
there is nothing like it.

i was tested on one a few years ago and my isometric strength at particular angles was in the 95 percentile which is athlete area and I’m no athlete but my back is one strong mother fucker.
