Someone please explain the "logical fallacy" of the slippery slope argument. I understand that just because something takes place, doesn't mean that something worse will always happen because of it. But aren't their times when "slippery slope" becomes very valid? As long as you can logically connec...

1) Go as low as you can while being able to keep the weight from going onto your toes, your knees out, and your back decently neutral. Ideally you would squat to or below parallel (hip joint drops even with knee joint) 2) Don't hyper-extend your low back on deadlifts. Squeeze your glutes at the top ...

I was in a flight three days ago and have another one in two days. Probably end up in 4-6 a year. Didn't think it was that uncommon.

I second foam rolling. It can really get at the back muscles.
Also, a stick (thestick.com) can really help loosen up your hips as it allows you to apply a lot of pressure to the hamstrings and groin.
If I were you I would take a few days off (or really light), at least.
