Hello, after many months of recuperating from sciatica, I am looking to do an HST routine again but with modifications to certain exercises. I can walk with minimal pain but bending over with a stiff leg is out of the question. I cannot do it nor does my PT advise me to "tough it out" and stretch. My Physical Therapist also advised to me to avoid barbell squats dead lifts standing military presses barbell rows. I tried to do some Romanian dead lifts recently with very low weights and it caused more pain afterwards. The form was correct as I asked people to critique my form. I understand I am excluding the main, big workouts of any exercise routine and trust me, I am very depressed about that too. I am copying the HST eBook routine but with these modifications to the routine stated below. The idea is that I will still try to apply HST principles to the modified program but on certain exercises, when it comes time to do the 5s and negatives block, I will just keep them at 2 sets of 10 (2x10) for general health and strength. My goal is to gain some size and progress on what I can and slowly and carefully strengthen my lower back and abs. I completely understand I cannot replace dead lifts and barbell squats so I will have to probably sacrifice some strength and size gains. I would GREATLY appreciate any advice or critique. Then I will go back to my physical therapist and we will review the program together. I am a big fan of HST. My hopes are to continue working out with its principles.
