Hi comeback. Not familiar with the other books but I will look them up, thanks. I can only speak from personal experience, but the weight lifting has helped my tennis and fitness a lot and I feel great. I am hoping the training will keep me injury free this season. My back is healthy so I have no experience there. I do have shoulder and knee problems from my past, and the weight letting seems to have improved not degraded those issues (I am very careful, for example I only do assisted pull-ups). I think it would be an excellent idea to hire a trainer for a session or two to help you design a lifting program that is suitable for your age and back condition. I hope you get the same results, let me know if you have any specific questions.
