Hey guys, long story short I have a few herniations and I’m looking for advice training legs around those injuries.
So far I cannot tolerate back, front or zercher squats, RDLs, Deadlifts of any kind, including trap bar.
Leg press doesn’t cause any pain, but I suspect this is what lead to my injury so I’m tentatively keeping it in my routine for now.
So far what I’ve come up with is trap bar rear elevated split squats, leg press, and lying leg curls.
The split squat really hits my glutes, the leg press is with lighter weight, shorter ROM and keeping my ass glued to the seat, and the leg curls for hamstrings.
This seems to take care of most things but I’m concerned about not having a hip-hinge movement in my routine. I’m currently trying single leg RDLs but having a hard time with balance and getting the form down.
What do you guys think?
