Dr. John Petrizzo On Injuries
This is an awesome presentation that helps define injuries so everyone is talking about the same thing. The studies and statistics present a picture of how safe weight lifting really is, despite the conventional wisdom that weight lifting will destroy your joints and thus your life. Also he takes time to specifically identify information regarding the lack of negative effect on growth plate cartilage in young lifters. Basically, quality coaching reduces the risk of injury when trying and if you already have something going on a good coach can help you train with out hurting you. It’s very cool that stuff like this is included as part of the continuing education of a Starting Strength Coach. This is part 1.
