I’ve spent a lifetime developing expertise in various fields. Hence I can firmly recommend identifying the real experts in fields and doing whatever they say. And that certainly applies to the project of getting stronger.

Back injuries and back pain

Dr. Stuart McGill all the way. There are countless podcast and YouTube interviews with this medical researcher from Waterloo. Do his fundamental back exercises most every day.

Strength training

That’s distinct from “going to the gym.” It’s also distinct from bodybuilding.

Here one heeds my favourite rat bastard, God-Emperor Mark Rippetoe, who half-blocked my account on his site Starting Strength and rewrote my bio to read “Supefluous.” (Hugs and kisses and tempeh by the pound, Mark!)
