Re: Arthritis from intense workouts?

I have done Crossfit from 2008 and had and have arthritis in my lower back and compete and train heavy squat over 300lbs every day for 5 days dead lift heavy(for me) all lifts as heavy as I can,

For my back it seems that it helps, Some days I am hurting out of bed and after a morning warm up (pullup pushups, situps, squat, HSPUs GHDs, back ext) I feel better and alot of times after my heavy squat at 10:00am befor my 12:00 workout I feel no pain after I squat.

I am 46 years old, 5 foot 6in 175lbs.
