I'm not speaking for Doc, Nothing is injury free and I do know that, but all that is meant is learn the correct form, build some stabilizer muscles from accessory lifts, ask questions and get some qualified input. I feel that if you overload what your body can handle combined with bad form and a lil' ego you can be in for a long haul on the road to recovery. Learn the basics, know your limits and you'll have a better chance a successful lifting future.
LOAD YOUR PLATE, LOAD YOUR BAR!
