i've been in a similar position before -- had to drop all exercises that messed with my lower back, which pretty much meant all barbell exercises. i ended up training dips and pullups exclusively for a couple months. i did lots of variations of the movements. i trained 4-5 days a week like that. in the end, my lats and rear delts looked great, and my arms were bigger. in fact, my biceps are actually smaller now than they were then.
