Re: Unusual low-back rehab protocol in WL Encyclopedia

This doesn't sound so far fetched from the bill starr rehab method. The lightweight and higher reps that this guy probably does helps increase the circulation in the area affected. By doing higher reps, your forcing the blood in the damaged area, trying to rebuild the tissue much stronger than before.

Keep in mind this is usually done after 3-4 days when the acute pain is gone. Whether you perform a rehab in this fashion is entirely up to you. My main concern would be where the weak link is in the system that caused the back injury. Once you find it, strengthen it making it your priority and back off a bit on your main exercises till it gets fixed.
