The rise of loads (III): Basic considerations for any rise 2

The rise of loads (III): Basic considerations for any rise 2


If we excessively forced this flexion from the lumbar zone, there is a tendency of intervertebral discs to move backwards, when inclining the vertebrae forwards.

When straightening  us, as we do not have the aligned good column, the discs are outside site and can be tweaked when we put right, which can produce an injury at lumbar level.

On the possible injuries derived from an poor implementation in the rises we will speak with depth in another chapter.

The important thing now is that we understand that the movement in itself can injure us, independent of the weight that we rise. It is more, normally the injuries appear at moments of distraction, with insignificant weights.

If the back already is damaged, by muscular imbalances (among them the lack of flexibility), this movement can produce an injury.

If we remembered crouch  instead of to incline, we will bend  the knees to lower to the ground level, and this will allow to maintain the straight back without altering the position of our intervertebral discs.

This simple gesture goes to extend the life of the column, because it is going to avoid the exhibition to a movement that can injure  us.

Think about the amount of times that you can be bent to take something of the ground throughout the week and will understand that I am speaking to you.

We will follow with this subject…
