The Battle of the Bulge rages on. Coaches, look for belly bulge in your athletes when they flex/curve/round. It’s an indicator of loss of stability around the spine and intra-abdominal pressure and introduction of competing forces on the spine. The result: net loss in the ability to handle load / flexion load, force intolerance in the hinge, and yes, back pain.
Gyms are open. Eyes should be, too.
