Foothold trapping coyotes in the wooded area near The Exchange on the Air Base as marked on this map is scheduled to begin shortly.
Capt. Gary Whiteman, 14th Airlift Squadron C-Flight assistant flight commander, 437th Airlift Wing, and his sister 1st Lt. Kristina Whiteman, 14th AS liaison officer, pose for a portrait at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina April 10, 2017. The Whiteman siblings are both U.S. Air Force Academy graduates and C-17 Globemaster III pilots here.
As illustrated, the posture, which creates the greatest pressure on the intervertebral discs, is bending forward when lifting weights from a seated position, that which is similar to performing the deadlift. Note that lifting from the seated positon increases disc load by 2.75x and standing with forward bending increases disc load by 2.25x. If you combine the positional increase in disc pressure and heavy loads such as that with deadlifting; it becomes apparent that while lifting heavy loads during lifts such as the deadlift one puts themselves at an increased risk of disc injury.
