I was wondering if you could offer some advice please. In February 2008, I suffered a slipped disc in my lower back (L5)
and loss of height in my S1 joint. I have had back pain on and off since 16 years of age, I am now 29. I have trained since the
age of 15.
Although I have seen some good progress in my recovery which hasnít always been consistent, I am still recovering and have not lifted weights
since August 2007. I have had physiotherapy. I am doing Pilates, having Osteopathy and acupuncture & acupressure treatments.
I would like to get back into the gym and get back into shape again.
What best gym exercises using weights would you recommend to get my back and core strong safely?
Do you know of any instances where someone has recovered fully from this type of injury and carried on bodybuilding?
Itís always inspirational to know of others who have overcome an injury like this and go on to live a normal and active life.
Thank you in anticipation.
