Hi All, I've seen variations on this subject covered in some other threads, but wanted to ask about my specific situation and whether anyone had any advise. About 2.5 months ago I hurt my lower back whilst doing squats at the gym. After an MRI and a visit to the Neurosurgeon I've been told I have a broad based disc protrusion in my L5-S1 which appears to be pressing on the nerve root. The doc said it will heal on its own but advised me against any heavy lifting for the foreseeable future, he has also referred me to get some physiotherapy. I live in the UK so this is through the NHS, which although is an amazing service, could take several months before I get seen. Therefore I've been looking for alternate ways to start rehabilitating myself. Oddly I'm only getting pain when I walk for long distances. I'm not sure if anyone has any experience with this but my question to the group would be, is starting the Fundamentals course going to be to much? should I avoid this for the time being? I'm keen to get active again and start building some strength. Thanks Lloyd
Hello there, I've got 3 questions about gymnastics. My training split looks like this: Gymnastics: Monday, Thursday and Saturday Stretching: Wednesday and Sunday Cardio: Tuesday Leg conditioning: Friday Should I stretch 2x 2 hours a week (Like above) OR stretch 15-30 min and then do my gymnastics training? If I want to focus on gymnastics, should I stop with the Cardio and leg conditioning? I mostly do cardio for my health and legs to balance my body out. And last of all: What are the basic skills I should master that will improve my performance on all 6 apparatus? My list right now is: Planche - Handstand - Iron cross - Front lever. I would appreciate the help. Sincerely, Sebastiaan
