Perfect.

No tendinitis, no joint issues, no knee issues.

I have had some issues over the years but have learned:

1) Less is more.
2) Stop a session when something doesn't feel normal.

By training smarter I now feel healthier than ever.

My personal opinion is that too many guys don't pay enough attention to form. Combine that with the desire to destroy themselves in the gym every day, and I think it's a dangerous recipe.
