I've had a lower back injury for about a year now. It doesn't really hurt much, but its definitely sapping my strength and it isnt healing or getting any worse and i'm 25 damnit. I'm going to have to stop proper strength training until its healed. Ill basically do more bodybuilding type stuff, putting more isolation work in and reducing the compound movements, becasue the compund movements are what are stopping it from healing I think. I was hoping I could still at least maintain most of my strength though. I was planning to do 10 rep sets for the bench press and reducing the arch and leg drive in it slightly. The millitary press was putting a lot of pressure on the lower back, so Im going to switch to 10 rep sets of seated dumbell press. The damn press took me ages to build strength on though.. Im going to only squat once a week but I will push myself very hard for 3 sets of 5. The deadlift I will do one heavy set a week for 5 reps.. although many say that deadlifting less= a better deadlift, and seeing as I'm recovering maybe once a fortnight is better. Will this still at least stop me from losing strength for when I one day return to proper training? thanks.
