It's frustrating because I'd like to possibly compete in a couple of years but this is something I'm going to work on. I've experimented with several exercises over the years and unfortunately most aggravate the back.
Most of the time some coaches/trainers recommend split stance squats, step ups, horizontal leg press etc, my problem is my left leg has lot at least 30-40% of its power output due to a nerve being crushed. I'm seeing my sports med doctor this week to find out what I can do and if surgery is an option (Would rather rehab over surgery)
Sled work has been good but due to the amount I've been doing to maintain and grow my knees are starting to give me some problems.
GHR's don't bother my back at all I just make sure to keep everything tight plus the extra glute work helps with taking the load off my spine.
I'm thinking about doing German volume training for my legs using the leg curl and extension until I work my way back to the horizontal press and hopefully squatting again.
I tried asking Coach T for some recommendations but I haven't heard back from him. Maybe we should create a new Thread to see what his take is on the matter?
When is your surgery planned for?
