I was doing 5/3/1 a few years ago but sustained a significant, yet unrelated, injury to my spine which required full blown surgery to remove disc in between C7/C6. Then stabilize it all with bone from hip and titanium screws/pins.
I have been cleared and back at work for a couple years now. I am wanting to get back to 5/3/1 but hesitant to get back up to heavier weight. I was told by the docs that there is a greater likelihood of other discs being affected due to my injury.
My question is this: opinions on 5/3/1 for someone in my situation? Is there a modified version I could/should do? Or something else entirely?
My goals are strength, flexibility, a lil bit of endurance. I’m not worried about being big, setting records, or anything like that. Fucntionally strong.
Thanks in advance.
