What do you all think? I have noticed myself that when I'm doing core exercises that utilize the motion he's saying is harmful that I feel some movement in my back. I'm not sure if it's discs or what but it has made me a little nervous. I've never had any noticeable pain or injury. What he's saying makes sense and it would explain some of the disconcerting movements I feel when doing those type of core exercises.

I think it would be interesting to see if they could do some type of retrospective study or poll people with disc problems to identify if his hypothesis is correct.

Hmmm, interesting. Darn, I'd normally run this by my friend who is a PhD in kinesiology but she's just had serious surgery.
