      Hello everyone! I’m new here 🙂 So I have a L1-S5 disc herniation. I earned it doing Crossfit with a poor technique and without proper recovery. My question is: is it possible to be able to do Crossfit and weightlifting with such injury (of course non-competitive) and are there anyone who did this course and found it helpful?

      Thank you!

      Welcome Nygyman
      Have you consulted with your doctor(s) or other qualified health care provider about participating in CrossFit and weightlifting post injury?
      Working with a quality PT with an S&C background is something to look into.

      The back to the barbell course will be useful, but I would also recommend finding a practitioner in your area who understands your goals and can make sure you are moving in a way that isn’t aggravating before you start slowly adding in the load, volume, and intensity of CrossFit and weightlifting.
