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.

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

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.
