I have, you guessed it, a herniated disc at L5/S1. It happened when I did an improper deadlift.

I'm trying to get a hold of a USAW coach in my area to help me work on my squatting and deadlift form and then I'd like to learn the C&J and snatch. Have you ever work with athletes that have had such injuries? What has been your experience?

I realize that some coaches would be apprehensive about working with an athlete, but I've found heavy lifting (not maxing out though) helps strengthen my back and relieves my pain.

Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
