    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    oddly enough, ive been lifting weights for 13 years now and I've never had a serrious injury from it. Hmmm, seeing as how injuries are so common, I wonder what thats all about? I mean my muscles hurt and I'm tired after my workout, but those aren't injuries, right?!

    You're obviously doing it wrong.

    He should've killed himself by now. Lifting weights(optimally) should kill you.

    I actually think that weight lifting, properly performed, can prevent injury and is probably quite a bit safer than the plyometrics. In both power cleans and plyos your muscles are working under high speed and acceleration. The difference is that plyometrics like depth jumps and the like force your joints do absorb more of the impact; in a power clean or related exercise your feet (usually) remain on the ground, making it easier for your muscles to absorb the bar's momentum.

    You can lift weights safely, Hannibal, even heavy ones. Be sure to know the technique thoroughly, and if you're going to do olympic style lifts like cleans and such, get someone qualified to teach you. And start slow; don't let your ego dictate the weight that you put on the bar.

    World is full of stupid myths, "training with heavy weight is dangerous", "they don't fit for women", "they will bulk you up no matter what".

    What if you don't feel comfortable training with weights?

    I am not talking about 3 pound dombells. I mean real heavy weights.

    Althought I will not argue that you can create easier increments with free weights or machines.
    It just feel more natural to do bodyweights.

    It's one thing to do it an an option, but to pull out some bullshit about no barbells in nature doesn't pass the laugh test. Resistance training (ie weightlifting) has been around since we moved out of the trees.

    How do you think cave men got the hunks of mammoth back to the cave? Or brought back wood for the fire? Or carried stones to build walls and bash their neighbors? Ever do farm work? ****, even the women would carry pots of water around.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
