Can someone with a mild L5-S1 bulgin disk can still hit the gym for weigt training.
I've read on forums on several bodybuilding sites that there are still people lifting weights even they have bulging/herniated disks. Last March, 2011 I was diagnosed of L5-S1 bulging disk. The doctor said its treatable and all I have to do is proper posture in every body movement I'll do. I stopped lifting right away after the diagnose. I decided to forget about ever hitting the gym for a year which really have me gaining weight. I can't run or jog. I can't play basketball anymore. It's a big change of lifestyle. There are several exercises I can do to heal my disk but I'm not really confident to start with any of them. I know I have to do some as soon as possible.
