    The deadlift argument is still going? Aren't there about 4000 threads about this to be found already? Must we further degenerate #4001?

    Don't mess with your lower back, or any of your back for that matter. My brother is just finishing physical therapy for back ijuries, and even when he's done, his back will never be the same.

    I disagree. Injuries occur because the stabilizers weren't strong enough to handle a certain load. This can happen to any bodybuilder doing a deadlift, for example. Even with a weight he/she normally...
