I am 20 years old. 4 months ago my doctor told me that I have the back of a 45 yr old. My doctor, however, also said that I can eventually do all the things that I used to do such as working out.
Currently I just started up on the Westside Training for Skinny Bastards program. (http://www.defrancostraining.com/art...s_westside.htm)
My back has improved from its old condition (which included not being able to walk) but I'm still unsure of its abilities. What does everyone think I should do to test out my back's ability to handle loads again? and What exercises should I consider doing for my legs and lower back at first?
As you all probably guessed Squats and Deadlifts are probably not the best place for me to start. When thinking of what I can do for my legs also consider that I am trying to semi-follow the Westside Training program for lower body.
Thank you Advance to anyone who offers up some advice.
