Deadlifts, Squats, and Other Movements, bad later in life?

#1 Postby Cellar Yeti » Sat Sep 17, 2011 1:51 pm

Was doing a bit of light reading and research and it's suggested power movements even if done safely and correctly can cause a lot of issues to your spine and joints later on in life.

Is there any merit to this?

What's the source?

I can't take any of that stuff seriously when I train with a 60 year old who's lifted heavy since his teens, and he's a strong mofo. No reoccuring injuries. Set a world record for the Squat a few months back.

And distance running causes calcification of the arteries over time...

The question is how this compares to the sedentary population in old age.

I asked here hoping someone could give me some links to studies, as I have found no concrete proof.

Fuck that noise, I'm not gonna stop squatting or deadlifting.

Why don't you link us to these sources of yours.
