    high intensity training without squats and deadlifts


    Have just a little experience with high intensity training.Read some great articles, books. And think Id benefit greatly to follow a routine. But most are based on heavy, compound exercises, which are great, but due to previous wear and tear on my lower back(been check outbydr, just minor stuff that comes with age and abuse) I cant do deadlifts and squats anymore.Woult HIT training be worth it without DL and squats? And if so any suggested subs?

    Ever tried a belt? Helped my back out so I could get into squats and deads. Buy a real one though, not one of those thin ones that gets narrow over the front of the waist.

    Strengthen your core/hips and improve flexibility and muscular balance so you can squat and deadlift. These are movements essential to not only lifting, but functional life.

    Dorian also was not known for his leg development.

    This + get a good belt and train with volume at first.

    I found that by ignoring areas which were a problem in the past due to injury or whathaveyou, the problem never gets better. Strengthen it again safely and slowly and always work on mobilty.

    perhaps, but his legs were big enough to win him Mr O six times. Just saying, you dont HAVE to squat/deadlift/barbell bench, theres always other ways of attacking a muscle. Not saying that i personally dont squat and deadlift, but i do use dumbbells rather then a barbell for presses. Just my personal preference but my chest seems to be a growin just fine. In the end to each his own i guess haha.
