Default Lifting Weights

Heres a question for you guys, I started up again with weights and such but as I'm sure most of you have seen sometime or another I have a prexisting back injury.

I started going for mad walks until I come home hunched over and unable to straighten my back (in hopes of preping it for the weights).

So now my question is:

I started with something I know I can do without causing my back to much stress which is 175 with a rep of 12. I used to be able to do 350+ easily but my actual limits are supposed to be 50lbs (according to the doc). I tried 200 the other day and my back hurt for two days solid with me hunched over, when do you think would be a perfect time to up the weight or is there something different I can do to try and get my back a little more used to heavier stuff?

just take it slow Tim... nice and easy, if you are going to up the weight do it gradually, like 5 lbs a week or something like that... that way your back gets used to the weight increase over a period of time... you know what i mean?

You need a break in period of about a month where you just do some general conditioning and work on perfect form. During this time use a lighter weight and just try to acclimate to the stress of lifting.

Yeah man take it easy for awhile and go up gradually. I acquired a minor tear of my AC joint last fall and pushed myself to keep lifting heavy and only took a week off and now its so fkd up I need to have surgery. So I recommend you take it easy for awhile and start low and slow. I know it sucks not being able to lift like you want to, but its better safe than sorry man.

this. just take a month with a reasonable number (such as squatting 150 (or even less) and just do it as often as you can (with in reason) to get used to the motion and work on form.

Take your time man. Work back into as your back allows you to. You cant go to fast because remember your back carries alot of strength just in itself so if you take the time and build it back up you should be fine
