Recovering Disc Injury


Hi Chris, I was wondering if you could give me some most bang for your buck substitute movements for the squat and deadlift as I’m recovering from a lower back disc injury. Thanks in advance!


I’m not Chris but how about the hip-belt squat?


Thats a good suggestion thanks a lot!


It’s really going to be an individual thing. But experiment with trap bar work if you have access to one. Depending on how you position the body, these can be squat-like or deadlift-like. I also like cable pull-throughs and barbell glute bridges and hit thrusts.
