Let's say the average mass about L5-S1 is about 120 lbs.


I absolutely do agree that walking will put more than 120 lbs of force on your spine. Just not that every step generates a force of 300 lbs.

It's got me wondering now actually what those forces would be though...

Regardless I don't plan on testing it. Live my life, do some light resistance training... brisk walking... But that's about it.
