View Full Version : Is this bad for my back?

06-08-2006, 09:47 PM
I have this little rack that I use for squats at my house, it isnt very high...about level with my lower chest, so when I go under the bar I'm kinda bent over before I push the weight off the rack. I feel alittle pain in my lower back when doing this but I dont feel it while squating, just when I'm unracking the bar from the rack. Can this damage my lower back somehow?

Yes, that can damage your lower back. Keep your back arched just like in the squatting movement while you take the bar off the rack.
