I have been recently diagnosed with a degnerative disk of L4/L5, where there is dessication. And the whole world came collapsing down for a minute thinking, I can never lift weights again. I think back, and see the things that led to this problem. And wish to god, i could take it back. But i cant. So i have to roll with it. I dont want to give up working out and being fit. And the last 6 months, i lost all confidence and trying to work my way back.
In any case, i was hoping to find out info about how some of you other guys/gals are keeping up your workouts with a similar condition.
I have been staying away from weights all together for squats, and completely off dead lifts. Only doing body weight workouts now.
Would love to hear some stories of how you have overcome it.
Thanks a lot. And please stay safe when doing heavy squats/dls.
