buy a belt.
dont do deadlifts.
theres no point in deadlifting if youre going to use light weight, be real.
use cable rows, pull downs, even 1 arm rows and other various machines to build your back.
i would say trap bar is least painful on lower back but its also least effective for building the back. rackpulls are good but you can still fuck your back up on those. truthfully i dont get why you want to do exercises taht will fuck your back up if you have a fucked up back already. makes no sense. like i said, stick to machines and cables for your heavier shit, you can use CHEST SUPPORTED T-bar too.
I’ve done all those exercises and more. But none of them seem to hit my lower back like the deadlifts and rack pulls. The closest thing that does it is hyperextensions. So what I’m trying to do is strengthen those lower back muscles without hurting them. That’ll actually help me keep my back healthy as long as I don’t go to heavy and injure them.
i dunno man, for a while i was thinking, man i need to strengthen my lower back after my injury, but honestly, i think its better not to try and directly target it. when ever i do any deadlift variation i try to keep my lower back out of the movement as much as possible, and im feeling grea these days. So maybe its best to just to stick with hypers[/quote]
That’s a valid point. Sam stated that he healed up and that is a critical point! If you are healed up then you may want to proceed with caution. If you aren’t healed up, as I suppose is the case with Grind, you may want to follow his advice and leave things alone until and if they ever heal. The back is definitely not to be messed around with. I’m sure that’s what led to my ruptures (not letting the back heal and continueing to use it and with terrible form!).
