a buddy of mine i've been trying to help get in to weight lifting has a pretty noticeable case of scoliosis. he's never had any kind of problems or surgeries because of it but if you had a profile of him from the side it would look like a question mark. I've been overlooking it but has he gets heavier in weight its starting to raise questions.
Is it save for him to squat and pull since in a proper form of the two lifts the back is more flat and the chest is out when he cant achieve that posture in normal everyday life?
I haven't labeled him handicapped or said anything to him about it because i dont want to discourage him. on the other hand i dont want to be causing any sort of damage by pushing him.
Sorry if this thread sounds ignorant
