However I'm starting to think that a rounded back is acceptable with a heavy load as long as the load does not contribute to compression of the spinal disks. So a rounded back during a good morning is bad because you are in a semi-upright position and the load on your back compresses your spinal disks, while a rounded back during the bottom half of a hyperextension is ok since you are in a semi-hang position and the load (holding a dumbbell at chest level e.g.) pulls your spinal disks apart. Does that sound about right?

Compression + flexion = bad things. So, basically, yes.

What are your thoughts on using more weight for this type of movement?

Back in the day I used to go over 100lbs added to this movement, but I havent gone over 45lbs (one plate) recently. And yeah, it was a real pita trying to hold onto the weight.

Do you think there are any bad issues with putting the weight on your shoulders? Main reasons are it's easier to hold a weighted bar there than in your arms

I had a client who was using a 120 lb DB at one point.

Getting the bar on your shoulders can be equally a hassle.

Lyle,

This article contains pictures (duh)... but when I click the "print"-link on the top of the page I get a nicely formatted page without the pictures. (probably the same for all the other articles, but not many of them have pictures)

Hmm, that's probably something to do with the plugin that does the print thing, nothing I have any control over but I'll ask my tech guys.

I'm not lyle but in my opinion this is an exercise where it can be a good idea to really exaggerate the contracted position and hold it for a few seconds and then do a slow and controlled negative.

if you are using the exercise for sport specific purposes then that recommendation may change (or not).

Is some momentum ok to be able to reach the fully contracted position? ( i got way too used to that HIT program, hah)

Reverse the question: why wouldn't a fast concentric be ok? And acceleration is different than momentum.
