Okay because of a disc injury in my lumbar I can't do anything that puts compression on my spine. Since back squats are out, I went to front squats, but this unfortunately didn't work out too well either. I'd like to get a little bit more explosion in my legs. So i was planning on doing lunges. What are the benefits/drawbacks of them. and since I can't do anything that'll compress my spine, can you guys name some other lifts I could do? For the last few months I've been regulated to just upper body lifts, and it sucks because my legs are tiny now and and I lost running speed.
