Heavy weight-training is bad for you, is a myth

Heavy weight-training does not destroy your body, incorrect weight-training destroys your body. As does not adapting movements for your individual physiology, training exactly the same way every day to create repetitive stress injuries, not warming up, or having extended sedentary periods of no training and going straight back in like a pro on your first work-out. Most injuries are easily avoidable: Make sure you warm up, are flexible enough to do the exercises you’ve set for your workout, use wraps and a weightlifting belt to take the stress off your weaker or more vulnerable muscles and joints, and train for long-term progress, not just a quick ego-feeding max-rep.
