Extruded disc (worse than herniation) and deadlifting or other lower back movements..

I'm 35 years old. After an MRI I was recently diagnosed with a bulging L4L5 disc and an extruded L5S1 disc. A disc extrusion is more severe than a bulging/herniated disc in that the disc annulus is actually torn and the nucleus material has escaped. It can't be recontained without surgery, and...

Any Leg Drive tips

Did the canned tuna thing completely scare you off or do you still eat it?

I remember taking a can every day with my lunch trying to get gainz. I don't eat it as much, but I still like to add it to pasta salad. I know I'm way under the serving per week guideline anyway.
