I don’t know if anyone can help me with this one… I used the site-search to check articles but didn’t find one about this…
I have an injury I recieved doing stiff legged deadlifts with too much weight and bad form. Well, at the time I thought I had good form, but I have a “slipped disk” in my mid back now… and it causes me problems from time to time.
I want to start working out again, but I don’t want to use the machines… but I’m afraid for my spine, as well. To make matters worse, I don’t think I’ll find a chiropractor that would OK deadlifts even if I wasn’t injured… much less give me the ok to RESTART deadlifts now that I am.
If a guy has a back injury, should he avoid dead lifts and squats?
Is there a way to “ease in” to the exercises that helps with this problem?
I hate to limit myself to the machines when I go back.
any thoughts on this? all answers appreciated.
