    Question Advice for leg exercises with bulging disc and sciatica.

    Hey!

    I have been lifting for a year now with 2 bulging discs in my lower back. One of the bulges is 6mm and the other one is 3mm.

    I have stopped doing squats and dead-lifts and leg-press and everything, which can help with serious gains(and aggravate sciatica).

    Although, I have made ok upper body gains (nothing crazy, just enough to be satisfied), I am worried about having chicken legs.

    Are there any exercises, which I could use for building legs and avoiding aggravating my back pain?

    Do you currently have a physiotherapy plan to help with the disc bulges?

    Yes, I do currently have a physiotherapy plan.

    Thank you for the video resource, as my Russian is not that good I did not understand much, however I will ask my friend to translate this video for me. Seems like Andrei has some wisdom on this matter. Spasibo!

    What does your doctor recommend?
    Getting medical/exercise advise on a forum is just speculation on what might be able to do as the people here are not doctors or PT's.
    It could do you more harm than good.
