    Wink Can excessive weight lifting damage brain nerves?

    At times, during Bench & shoulder Press, I want to push weights beyond my capacity.
    I wonder, can it be detrimental to some of the nerves in the body? What are pros & cons
    of pushing above limits?
    Thanks

    Yep. All champion powerlifters are legally retarded.

    Kidding. No, you won't get nerve damage just from lifting weights, even to failure. You can get CNS exhaustion, which is temporary, but not nerve damage.
    GOMAD!

    Not nerve damage but you can damage your body...So much weight puts a lot of stress on your body and it's bad for your bones. My friend/ coach for wrestling used to powerlift; doing over 500 bench presses and heavy squats....the doctor told him if he didn't stop he'd be eating out of a straw the rest of his life and be paralyzed...he was just putting way to much pressure on the plates in his back...

    This can actually achieve better nervous efficiency.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Maybe he means bad for your joints, which is more of a possibility once you get to really high weights. Most legitimate weightlifters are dinged up too. The alternative, physical inadequacy, is worse.

    I think I'll go with this.^^^^



    I'm not a powerlifter, but have been bodybuilding training for a long time. This includes Squatting, Deadlifting, and Pressing mostly in the lower (6-8) rep ranges. I've never had any training-related health problems. Never even been injured, actually. My knees, hips, elbows and even shoulders (with some age-related Arthritis) are in excellent shape.

    I'm nobody special; I simply stick with warming up adequately, and always lifting with good form. I eat and rest adequately to support my training.

    yeah

    I've always learned lifting weights strengthens your bones. Overtraining can lead to tendinitis and stuff like that, but I don't see where your coach got that from. Either way, how many of us are really going to be pressing 500+lbs on bench. I would like to be able to say I can someday, but I'm not a powerlifter so I'm not worried about it.

    Well idk man, but i'm not sure it's normal to be lifting that much for one person. My coach was benching over 500lbs and DLing over 600 that's crazy! But because of it he was having back problems and had to have it checked out and he got the response from his doc that i mentioned above. Idk bout your friend though maybe when he pushes it too much...plus what about joints =/

    Yea man like the guy above me..your 61 and still lifting awesome!!

    If the weights he lifted were "normal", he wouldnt be a powerlifter; he would have been your average Joe posting on bodybuilding.com

    FWIW, the recreational non-competitive lifter isnt ever even going to be close to benching 500 lbs or deadlifting 600 lbs. So, OP, dont even bother thinking about excess damage etc. By and large, with the weights that you can handle, you are not likely to cause much damage to yourself provided you take adequate safeguards and use decent form.

    And by the time you reach the stage when you are lifting f***ing ridiculous weights, you will probably know well enough how much your body can handle.

    heavy weights make it easier to blow a disk or two in your back, but then can happen even without any weights
    but i've never heard of anyone suffering brain damage
