    Should I squat and deadlift?

    I have had lower back issues since highschool (slight scoliosis and sciatica)and this is really affecting my ability to do decent weights with squats and deadlifts, if I can even do them at all because of back pain. Has anyone had similar experiences with these exercises. Should I even continue them at all? Are there other exercises that I could do (keeping in mind that I have a home gym without the expensive leg press machines)? I'd really love to hear some feedback. Thanks

    My advice is not to continue with them because you will hurt your back seriously.
    Or just do them with less weight.

    Well, I've always had some back problems associated to football injuries or multiple four-wheeler accidents (slipped discs, etc.) that's delayed my progression, so I know what you're going through to an extent. I could give you some rehab exercises or something of the like, however...I don't have any personal experience with scoliosis or sciaitica. So...I'll ask:

    Have you ever had any sort of treatment for either of them?

    Were they caused by an adolescent injury...such as a herniated disc?

    I have never had a serious injury, no herniated disks, but from my countless visits to chiropractors and physiotherapists, I seem to be misaligned. It's been a persistent problem for me and I seem to be constantly going from periods of relief to all out pain. I'm just trying to get some feedback / advice from people in similar circumstances.

    I appreciate all comments. Thanks

    I herniated all 3 of my lowest lumbar disks at the same time in a work related accident when I was 23. Over the years/decades I had a history of back related troubles and many many injuries. When I started lifting a year ago the though of dead lifting was out as was any kind of heavy squating.

    Today I still face challanges but I do squat and I do dead lift although currently I am on break from both because of... you guessed it, an injury. Not a back injury though.

    Anyway I guess I am saying that you have to feel it out for yourself. You can always go lighter weight and even high reps. I mix it up all ways I can and I have increased both lifts over the last year for sure.

    I will say this, my low back is way stronger now than it has ever been before.

    Hope you find your groove man.

    I had surgery for two herniated discs about 9 years ago. The surgery took away the excruciating pain and the sciatica, but I still had back problems and from time to time had to get shots in the back to ease the inflammation. I too was afraid to do Squats, Deadlifts, Good Mornings because of this. I started out with low weights and gradually built up. I especially started to ramp up the weight on deadlifts a few months ago. My back has never felt better or stronger as it does now. I would say clear it with your Doctor first, and start with low waits and build up, using strict form. Good Luck.

    see a sports doc or chiropractor in sports. in the meantime, do hyperextensions with weights instead of deadlifts and do high reps low weight with squats.
