Hey Everyone,
I'm getting over a herniated L4/L5 right now. I had an epidural shot and I'm feeling much better. For Squatting and Deadlifting, which variations would you recommend? I'm trying to follow a power building type split. Thanks!


The herniated L's are where I stopped.

You need to address THOSE! Your Powerbuilding squat/dead lift are sitting nicely on the back burner until they become part of the routine to improve your spinal stabilization.

For NOW, you need to:

Crunch ONLY with your upper ab while maintaining NO movement in the Lumbar region.

You need to plank with a neutral spine.

You need to stabilize, stabilize, stabilize.

Get where I'm going?

Make that lumbar region so stink'n strong, you can't HELP but need to squat and dead lift.

and THAT'S the bottom line,
Harry Selkow
