Came across a Yoga post on T-Nation this morning, which if you know anything about T-Nation, is just a bizarre statement. Besides the utter weirdness of the moment, Zach Gallmann makes a valid point, the same point that I have heard from Kelly Starrett and the Monk. Back pain can be extremely tied in to tight hamstrings and a general lack of lower body mobility. If you are a casual or semi-serious or full-on serious powerlifter, there is a lot of wisdom in that point. Let’s face it, lifters in general, don’t care to stretch, and as a result, the body takes a beating. Yoga is part of an answer.
