Re: learning lifts on my own

Mark, most of the time when the discussion is about a rounded back during the lifts it usually is referring to the lumbar region. The thoracic region can also be too rounded (excessive kyphosis aka hunchback) but is generally not considered as serious of a problem since the thoracic region is naturally in kyphosis anyway. The lower back problem is when the lumbar vertegbra go from lordosis into kyphosis, which puts a strain on the vertebrae, discs, etc.
