    Smile Only bicep curls!!!

    I have been a nerd all my life. after completing my studies i have started concentrating on my fitness,but i cant seem to do any of the basic lifts without injuring my back.i have been deadlifting at home with just 30kg weight(bars included) and overhead presses(12 kg*20 reps*2sets) .i have a tight back now and strange pressure on lower back while standing

    i now want to do only bicep curls and my question is

    DO BICEP CURLS HELP IN BUILDING SOME SHOULDERS AND BACK OR I WOULD GET A disproportionate BODY

    You need to build strength in your back. The alternative is to stay weak and fragile your whole life.

    Just start light and focus on form. Do some EXTRA back exercises like hyperextensions and hip abductors.

    If you focus on a muscle which represents like 1% of your body mass then you will get nowhere.

    There is always a risk of injury, especially if you don't train correctly. However, if you do it right, you should decrease the risk of injury and make yourself more resilient.

    I work with a bunch of 20 and 30 year olds who all seem to have back or shoulder problems from sitting at a desk all day. I'm pushing 50 and have no such problems - the difference is that I lift weights, they don't.

    If the resistance is the same, the risk is the same. If you can do (say) 30 pushups. Then in order to make a comparison, you need a similar exercise like bench pressing - and you need to choose a weight which allows you to do 30 reps.

    Risk is low for all exercises when done properly - that shouldn't be how you choose what exercises to do.

    Anything can aggravate a pre-existing condition. I can't say more than that. If you can't recover and start building up like any other novice to weight training then you will have to get advice from a sports pyhsio.

    hi brother!the pain is now less in lower back but now upper back is sore and trap muscles are aching on right side,
    may be its due to bad posture while resting i spend my day using cellphone lying down and watching porn

    also i did overhead press last before injuring myself.
    i stay at home and dont do any work,so i spend almost 8-10 hrs in bed using cellphone and 2 pillows below my head,

    lets see what happens.waiting for ur reply
