    Is it better to have a compressed or decompressed spine for Squat/Deadlift?

    Your spine decompresses when you sleep, you're .5-1 inch taller in the morning. Relevance is that I have the option to take a long nap before my training sessions. Would it be better to go straight from nap to training or give it some time to let the spine recompress? I know this is minutia but might as well ask.

    Never a decompressed spine.
    A coach friend of mine from Russia would hang between every set of deadlifts he would do.
    Only for a short period of time to decompress himself for the next set.
    Hanging from a pull up bar is probably one of the least invasive ways to decompress.
    The other might be a foam roll for the upper 2/3 of your back.
    Never do the lower area with a foam roller there are other things that are better.

    No it doesnt. Go measure yourself and youll find the effect much less than that.

    If you have a damaged or worn spine don't do any load baring exercises on your back.
