Advocating machines, static stretching and tempo lifting?
This is one of the worst articles I've ever read on this site. Yes, not crushing your hands under weights and not lifting more than you can safely and with good form will avoid injury. No kidding.
There has been plenty of research done by folks with actual degrees that has shown static stretching may increase injury while weightlifting, speed of repetition is unimportant so long as proper form is maintained, and that some machines, especially the Smith machine and Leg Press can be dangerous to joints.
