    My Doc told me that heavy lifting causes the abdominal muscle to push up and herniate the muscle that surrounds your surrounds (the muscle open and close to receive food and then hold it in stomach) Anybody here of this and how to avoid this when lifting. Thanks Jim

    Does your doctor lift, or is he the typical doctor who smokes, is fat and believes squats are bad for the knees?

    I recommend working the abs with weight (no more than 10 reps per set - abs are no different than any other muscle, so train them the same way) to strengthen them. When lifting heavy weight, hold your breath in and push the abs out.

    proper form is essential...proper form and no injuries.....ive seen guys do db curls and could have sworn they would break their backs they were swaying so much.

    that being said the tendons can only handle so much. i learned this the hard way by snapping my pec minor while benching.

    No problem, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on some sort of lifting fad.

    But if it is heavy lifting, well than, I agree with ateamer again.
