    Lower back warm-up prior to every work-outs

    What do you think about warm-uping the posterior chain before every work-outs?

    Lately the first thing I do when I'm ready to train is a set of 20 reps (very far from faillure) of bodyweighted back extension followed by 2 sets of stretching because I lack flexibility in this area.

    Is it a good idea? Could be a suggestion to others too if it's a good idea.

    Staying injury free is one of my important goals.

    Lately I broke up back day and deadlifting day and my lower backs been bothering me. I wonder if its because I used warm my back doing deadlifts before my rows, now I am not.

    I do this, but at the end of my workouts. Seems to help. I have a lingering injury to my back, and this combined with hanging from a chinning bar at the end of my workouts really help to keep it in check.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.
