I over the summer i went on a diet, dropped from 270 down to between 240-245 which made my lifts drop down some too. my lifts are goin a little better again, deadlifted 550 x 2 last week, narrow stance deep squats into the 400's which is how i like to squat. if i want to move some heavier weight i can slide my feet out and still get a hair over 500. im not sure where bench is but i did some sets of 3's this week that went something like 275*3 290*3 315*3 335*3 335*3 335*5. starting to move my weights a little better that i was and then this week i stepped back to front squat still warming up and dropped down, in the whole it felt like my low back erupted and hit the floor and literally could not stand up on my own will.
Turns out i hurniated a disc and was told I basically cant lift anymore. this isnt going to happen, but i literally cant touch my own knees. i tried to go in and do seated shoulders and couldnt lift up 40 lb dumbells of the rack for warmups and even had some guys hand them to me and couldnt push them because of my pain when i tried to press.
so the real question is has anyone herniated a disc and come back at it like it didnt happen. im not going to stop lifting. monday ill go back in and grind my teeth do whatever i am physically able to do, but it sounds like its going to be a long road to feeling better
