Tamala Barker, Attorney at Law, was a very successful business woman. After the breakup of a short marriage she became somewhat depressed. That is, until she met Dr. Mary Mercy, a medical doctor with a PhD in pyschiatry.
Tiffany June 6, at Our legs are usually much stronger than our core, and the weight from a back squat gets misloaded as a result. A trainer of mine told me recently to expand my rib cage and keep it activated throughout an entire squat or dead lift.
This helped me brace my thoracic region which also activated my core and lumbar spine. Belly breathing was important to maintain that activated thoracic region.
It worked and the entire movement felt different to me than before. Thrusters are where I have a real hard time holding the proper core and spine positioning.
So much happening there. Thanks for the great, mature reply. Anthony Dream Johnson June 6, at 1: Do you even read your own writing?
Your comment is ludicrous and your actions are totally disrespectful to your body. Reply Jay June 7, at 9: Because the bar is not resting on the top of the spine? But it is supported by the hands, which is attached to the arms, attached to the shoulders, attached to the SAME TORSO as the traps or rear delts that support the bar on a back squat.
Guess what, the spine is under the same essential compressive force Bryan Stell June 7, at You clearly know very little. Reply Steve September 19, at His brain is probably so plaqued up by saturated animal fat. Barbell squat the worst exercise, rofl, plz kindly wipe your vagina.
Reply laureljan September 8, at Hundreds of strong women are currently in tears with laughter at the suggestion that squats are dangerous.
Anthony Dream Johnson September 11, at 6: There are no free passes for being a dumb fuck. Yes it works the legs, but it also works your core, and even your shoulders and arms. You could end up blowing yourself up baking cup cakes is you did it for long enough and made just 1 simple mistake — forget to light the gas.
Also, it is an exercise. You put lbs on your back and squat 5 reps, your heart will be pounding, you will be sweating and short of breath.
Give yourself a few minutes rest and do it again for 5 sets. And only an idiot would just throw on that much weight in one go and drop. You should start with an empty barbel and gradually increase the strength, warming up properly.
And if you squat in a cage or rack the risk is even less. Your argument is without constructive thought or sufficient evidence to back up your radical claim. Or you lost a fight with a barbell and this is your way of getting even. Anthony Dream Johnson November 5, at 5: Congratulations, you are the first person in history to think of this.
The failures are hidden. They stop coming to the gym. Your legs will get stronger faster than the muscles that support your spinal column. Another young lifter will take your place and the legacy of the almighty back squat will survive.
The solution is finding a way to build leg strength without compromising the spine. A goblet squat using a lower weight is one idea. Reply Mike Marsh April 27, at 5: I and a few other lifters like you have observed this all to well.
Where did the heavy squatters go?.Cocnerning the so-called Internet, e-mail, blog lingo that have become internationally normal since the advent of Internet accessibility, I think it still a matter of purpose and appropriateness.

Since contractions tend to add a light and informal tone to your writing, they are often inappropriate for academic research papers, business presentations, and other types of official correspondence.
However, this rule does have some flexibility. In general, it's best to use your own judgment when deciding if contractions are appropriate for a particular piece.
A more colloquial voice will use contractions.
Many of us learn this no-contraction rule in school. It’s certainly useful for academic writing and some professional writing. The Associated Press Stylebook: "Contractions reflect informal speech and writing Avoid excessive use of contractions." From two books, I learned that contractions challenge people who read English as a foreign language: Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications: "Avoid contractions.
As basic as contractions are to the native reader, they add unnecessary complexity for the non-native reader.
