Warning: Ancient Thread! Check the date before offering advice... I had an L1 Transverse Process fracture. Basically I thought I was king shit on a snowboard; I got about 8ft of air, over rotated and landed squarly on my lower back. Hence the fracture. I've been doing nothing but body weight stuff. Before I started Physical Therapy I was dead lifting/squating and doing weighted lunges, but this really aggravated my back (scar tissue, and nerve damage). My Physical Therapist was at a loss for words when I asked him this question so I thought I'd try you guys. Any ideas?
