I just recently had what is called Microdiscectomy on L5/S1. I have had this herniation/bulge for about the last 12 yrs. It finally got to the point of unbelievable pain running down my leg. Needless to say I lost 20 lbs in the last 2 months leading up to the surgery. Mostly in my lower half. I start rehab next week and have been walking for at least 30 min every day. (only thing I am allowed to do).
I was wondering everyone, including the strength coaches, what type of lifts they thought were ok to use once I am cleared to work out again. On the lower half of the body that is…
I have several of my doctor friends tell me no more squats and no more DL. 2 things I love. Also what about cleans and jerks, jerks behind the neck?
I am kind of freaked out since the doc said it was a rather bad herniation and he had to remove most of my disc, since it was destroyed.
Thanks for all of your input,
