    Ah okay. Iíve never heard of that guy. I do, however, watch the Squat University page on YouTube and follow all of that guyís advice on squatting and have found a definite increase in my form and squat-ability since I started.

    Ok nice thank you. I have had low back pain since the military, blame it on fast roping and jumping. So i know how you feel there, days i can barely move. At 38 I havenít learned the if it hurts stop yet hopefully I will soon.

    I wish my gym had a reverse hyper. My back has been completely jacked lately and I really need to get it in better working order. I know if I strengthen it it'll keep it from hurting too bad, and that's really all I want. I've had bulging discs for a long time and now I apparently have a benign tumor on my L2...explains a lot with my increasing back/sciatic pain over the last few years.

    I'm sure getting it strong will keep me going without surgery for at least a couple years. It's just real hard to work it without hurting it more. I'm not sure how to do that

    I can directly relate to your reasons, however at 29 I believe Iím just now starting to feel the pain since I still have 8 years till I retire.
    I definitely encourage you to check out Squat University on YouTube and also make use of a Reverse Hyper if youíre gym has one, because that has absolutely helped me in managing my degenerating discs. Hope this helps man

    Man thatís fucking terrible to hear, Iím sorry about that. I will say that the Reverse Hyper helped me basically fix my bulging discs (now obviously this probably only lasts so long as I continue doing them), so I definitely encourage you to seek a gym with one so that you can find some relief brother. I know all too well how debilitating it can be to have your back be screwed.

    Thanks man. Yeah I think I'm going to buy one myself honestly. Outside of my gym it's an extra 20 minute drive to any others so I'm kinda stuck there. But I can always buy one for my home gym. Definitely going to do that

    So, yes and no. Really it all kinda depends on the training/mission. But I definitely eat as much as possible whether itís clean or not to compensate
