    he didn't say i had to stop working out, but he doesn't want me putting any really heavy loads on it, especially the type of loads it'd see from deadlifts :o so no heavy squats either :wtc: that's the part that really sucks

    he did give me some "exercises" to strengthen my lower back muscles :hsugh: all body weight stuff.. i'll try a few of them, but probably end up doing light good mornings and extensions or something :dunno:

    No I'm sure it's just because he drinks a lot of milk.

    my form is usually good.. i usually don't set the bar down in between reps, but someone told me i should, so i tried it that day.. so i apparently messed something up by changing things

    doc says that was just a strained muscle though, that probably wouldn't have caused anything like this..

    Crunge has a sick back and doesnt do deadlifts.

    Could his back be even thicker if he did? Probably. But everyone is different. Some people won't grow doing just hypers, some will.

    He might also be blessed with genetically sick erectors.

    me to.. l5s1.. no squats.. if you learn to lift around it.. no reason not to get bigger and stronger.. i am now the biggest and strongest i have ever been.. 7 years after injuring it. LMK if your injury is in a similar place, i will let you know what movements i do to build size and strength but work around the unjury.

    Lemme tell ya, it sucks to have a degenerated disc, in fact it really sucks. But the best thing for you to do is take time off any compression excersizes, get a little ART done (chiropractor can do) and relax.
    I have torn 2 discs and slipped another and much much more... I will admit it comes from bad form which I turn to when I am tired and try to push myself too hard. I spent time not being able to walk properly, took a year of deadlifting and over 6 months of squatting. I didnt do any compression excersizes for several months too. Anyway, currently I am deadlifting over 500 for reps and plan on hitting 600 in the next few months.

    The key is to be patient and let things heal. Go see a sports med doc who deals with athletes, thats numero uno. Most GP's will give you conservative advice to stop doing the excersize and change your routine. If you hit up a real sport med guy, they can give you a realistic time frame and help you with your form via physio as well.

    Lastly, a major cause of injury, as I have noticed, is a weak core. The muscles that give you strength in the mid section. Your core muscles will allow your body to stay strong through out the lift, if its deads, or squats - a weak core is prone to twisting and torquing the weight, which leads to injury.

    ..../end rant.

    like above, sports medicine specialist ftw. gp's or orthos dont have enough knowledge of these things to do a good job fixing it.

    one you strengthen your back, it shouldnt be a huge problem; if you did an mri of everyone in this forum, probably 50% of them have disk abnormalities that are asymptomatic.
