    My gym was having a DL contest, I was only filming. I got so fired up just watching, I thought I'd just jump on in when they hit 405. Mind you I could rep 405 at this point, so it should have been a shoe-in rep. Some people were struggling and some people were missing, so I sort of got egotisical and wanted to show off. I attempted the pull dead cold, the weight didn't budge and my back was TORE!!! That put me out for a good while.

    My sciatic nerve doesn't get aggravated anymore, thank god. I had it for a year (10 months) straight and even sitting in class was unbearable. My lower back is just vulnerable in general, the one other exercise I can't do are BB rows and that's actually my second favorite lift, scond to deads. Injuries suck, but having had lame injuries makes me appreciate my other functional bodyparts.
    I have the same exact problem, driving in my car too long used to aggrivate the hell out of it as does any kind of rowing type lift. So what did u do to help your back recover? As soon as this happened i bought a bunch of cissus and megadosed it for a few months and it didnt do anything. Theres a huge azz bodybuilder at my gym who said he had the same problem and it randomly went away after a year. I take ibuprofin when the stiches from my hernias aggrivate me and it seems to help my back but im afraid to take too long.

    Time in general and time away from anything that will stress your lumbar. I also wore a lumbar support beneath my lifting belt during the times that it would hurt just to walk. I had to wear that lumbar support/lifting belt combo to work sometimes (office job).

    At this point, I "can" dead lift, as long as I take a slow, progressive route. I only ever re-aggravate my lumbar when I forget about my limitations. That said, I didn't dead lift for a year after my slip disc, but mine was pretty bad. Like you, driving hurt, getting in and out of the car, in and out of bed, taking shets hurt, sneezing, putting socks on, laughing, coughing, it was all bad. I never got surgery and I progressively healed over 10 months.

    I just focused on various hammer rows and various pull downs to keep my back up to par.

    A member here suggested a version of the BB row that I can perform without agitating my lumbar and its taking the medium length barbell or an EZ bar, laying chest down against an incline bench and pulling. The straight, medium length BB is preferable. However, you have to have one of those benches that are bolted down, or you'll endo with the weight. Start with the 45's, its a light beginning and the 45's place the bar in a good height off the floor for easy access.
