    I'm slowly building muscle in my back while recovering from a heirneated disc.

    I do a lot of movements that Ceaze reccommended and they are helping greatly (birddogs, bridges, cat/camel motion, leg lifts)

    I'm going to add DB bent-over rows and do deadlifts (with the 45lb bar ONLY as to not strain my back) will this suffice or should I add something else?

    I lift at home and have a bench and up to 45lbs on DBs (I need to get more plates) :x:

    Heres my log

    I already do rear seated lat raises, they seem to be the same thing or similiar to reverse flys?

    I cant do lat pulldowns, don't have the equipment :hsd:

    FWIW, if I was recovering from a herniated disk, I would make the relatively small investment in joining a gym with the proper equipment to help me recover.


    That said, others are better suited at giving further advice... Good luck!

    I can't afford the monthly payment.

    I can do just about everything I want here with what I already have for now because I ride my bike and jump rope for cardio.

    The only things I can't do (that I want to or will want to in the future) are tricep pushdowns, lat pulldowns, heavy squats with a better rack, etc

    Trust me, when I'm out of school in a year I'll be all over a gym membership :wiggle:

    Anything that's limiting his ability to do what he needs to in order to recover. If he needs or wants a lat pulldown machine or whatever...

    I'm not saying he needs it, but if he does, it's well worth doing what it takes to get it.

    No I'm a fattie :mamoru:

    After I cut more weight/get stronger I'll eventually get a chin-up bar to put in a doorway.
