Back and Knee Issues

Got the results of my mri’s yesterday. I have two disc in lumbar region with small tears in them letting fluid come out and press on nerves. My knee has a small horizontal tear in the miniscus cartilege, surgery recommended. Hyperextended the knee on a motorcycle. Back problem has been going on for 33 years. He recommended i not do deadlifts, and good mornings.

Guess it’s on to rack pulls. He said a cortisone shot in the back was a 50 50 chance of helping. Hell think i’ll shut up and push. LOL

Thats rough. Sorry to hear. Im trying to switch to sumo on my deads. So far it seems to take a huge load off my back. Lets hope you can get back there soon.
