Thanks. I was thinking and I suppose it could be a muscle strain. I hope it is... The only reason I think it could be is because I don't have any pain in my legs. I can barely drive and I walk like a grandpa. That is just like when I first ruptured the disc. But the pain in my legs was one of the worst things before and it's absent. Time will tell...

Bench - 5X5 195
Rows - 5X5 105
Calve raises - 4X15 90
Leg Press - 4X10 200

Good workout. I was able to do leg press. It felt heavy though...this sled is heavy as shit. I was doing 650 at the other gym...granted, THAT was HEAVY...today I was just trying it out. But still. I'm just happy to be able to do something with my legs. I'm pretty sure that it's a muscle strain in my back now. No pain/numbness radiating down the legs. It's been feeling a little better also.

Glad to hear you are recovering a bit.

Thanks for the support. I'm going to take it as easy as I can. My goal is to start doing light squats again week after next.

Bench press - 3X5 200, 2X5 195
Superset - everything

Met one of my buddies in the gym. He was doing some superset crazy ass workout that he found somewhere. I did it with him just because I haven't done any rep work in months now. And my back is no good, so I couldn't do squats. No breaks in between...we hit everything in the upper body. Lifted for 60 seconds or did 30 reps. For everything. My posterior delts have never been more sore in my entire life. I have never been so sore during/directly after a workout or for such a long period of time. It was fun and something different. Back to normal on Wed...minus deads.

Pull ups - 5X5
Military Press - 5X5 135
Squats - 1X8 135
Curls, Chins
Hyper extensions

Didn't do any leg press like I planned, but that's fine. I felt pretty good doing those squats. Didn't think I should mess with anything after I did them though. I will mix in some light squats and leg press on Friday. This was a very intense workout. Rest times were short and it was a killer bicep day. I decided yesterday that biceps are my most neglected muscle group, so I hit them hard today. Apparently seated military press is easier than standing BB shoulder press. I like it more anyway...less stress on the back. I had been planning on switching to that today. Good workout...

Give it a go...still wear a belt though. I am going to replace the standing with seated for a while.

Seated is a good option to change it up. Especially if you are starting to feel it in your back. You should also be able to use a little more weight since you are already stabilized and not having to balance yourself as much. Be safe and enjoy.

Cardio sucks
