The Kevin Bass Show
My personal experience with injuries from weight training
It is in vogue in resistance training circles to only publicly promote the benefits of resistance training while avoiding any mention of downsides. The rationale that mention of downsides and risks will discourage people from resistance training.
In this video, I talk about my journey in resistance training and how my overzealous application of training in my early training career led to or accelerated the development of lower back problems and other injuries. I talk about how I wish I had had more cautious minds in my corner when I first started training, and how I think the resistance training community could do a better job about this. I talk about the methodological problems in a commonly cited meta-analysis. I call for more public discussion of how common injuries are in resistance training, especially its more competitive forms.
