The only weight lifting techinque I think is useful is the deadlift, and even then I would use a hex bar as opposed to a straight bar.
At the end of the day, it's your body. You can do what you want with it, but I find it hard to believe that it was designed to manipulate hundreds of lbs of weights on a daily basis every day of your life.
Like I said, maybe it's just me that feels more limber and fleet footed since I've abandoned weights, but I find this hard to believe.
You lifted for 13 years and you brag about doing 1000 in the three lifts? No wonder they ****ed you up, you must have been doing something very wrong to improve that little in all that time. Seriously, how big are you?
