First I want to say hi to you all. My first post, not what I would like to start off with though.
I'm a late bloomer when it comes to squats, but I started a couple years back. My question is how do you generally get injured from doing squats? Is it from going down too far? Because I was loosining up with 100lbs and went way far down and even bent forward and touched my chest off my knees akmost. Like a full tuck. I know this may have been stupid but I'm new at squats. When I do them I'm using good for but this one set I was almost stretching.
Bottom line :my back is screwed up BAD!! I can't even squat 45lbs now! I either have a back disease called "AS" or a back injury from squats.
Anybody know whats types of back injuries come from squats? And how long they may linger? It did feel funny when I did that set.
