I used to lift heavy too but after straining my back several times i went alternate route. i do routines that push my endurance for wakeboarding, snowboarding etc. I ride 10 days straight first call last chair while my friends barely put in 3 hours each day on a 4 day trip
Out of curiosity can you either pm me or share your work out routine, month out of a Banff trip might use your knowledge.

I've been icing in the evenings and stretching a couple times a day. I think it might be a little better now than it was yesterday. Of course a muscle relaxer, 2 beers, and 9 hours of sleep will work wonders!

Thanks for all the replies...
If it's feeling a little better, try not to rest too much. The back usually heals faster if you still get some movement in. Just be sure to not lift with your back or bend over too much.

For a bit of a change-up on your leg work, use one of the machines and do reps very slowly, i.e. 10 seconds for the press and 10 seconds for the release. HUGE burn with maybe 2/3 of your normal weight setting.

I think a lot of people have gone the heavy route and realized its not worth it. In 08 I tweaked my back and was out for a month and a half. Since then, I lift lighter, yet am still bigger and more defined then some of these guys in the gym that are tossing around too much weight with no form or ROM. Hopefully your doc gives you some good news. Your back isn't something to fuck with..

With all this talk of how much you lift and all that, it all comes down to what your want to do with your workout.

If you want to build muscle mass and get huge, do higher weights (within reason). The higher the weight the more your muscles are exerted and the more they regenerate and grow, giving you larger muscles.

If you want leaner muscles and to get ripped, use higher reps of lower weights, thats how you get cut and your muscle definition is greater but the mass isn't as much.

To each his own, but once you get to a mass you are happy with, I always suggest to transition to lower weights at higher reps to sustain your mass, while also putting your muscles through a good amount of work while not over exerting them as much compared to high weight and normal reps.

That's not entirely true. You could lift heavy all the time, but if you don't take in more calories than you burn, you won't gain mass. And for getting lean, you could lift high reps with lower weights, but if you eat McDonalds for every meal, you aren't going to get lean. It all comes down to nutrition when you are building muscle mass or losing fat.

Yeah, well that is all just assuming you aren't eating horribly or calorie loading. It's assuming your eating a balanced diet. I'm assuming they are in good shape to begin with. If you want to bring diet into the equation then there is no straight answer for all the questions that are being asked in here...

The whole idea of lifting lighter weights to tone your muscles is a myth. Toning is all about body fat.

I go to an actual crossfit gym b/c it pushes me harder. i try to be first one done or dang near close. it always changes every day with anything and everything from burpees, pull ups, pushups, rolling tires, sprints, squat jumps, planks, jumping jacks, knee highs, running mans, etc. I vary 3, 4, 5, and 6 mile runs every day and always take sunday completely off to rest. I really start hitting squats and lunges and intense cardio closer i get to the snow season. Hot tub and PBR definately helps every night for the next days ride.

^This

BF% is genetics and diet. Toning is bullshit. The only thing you can do with a muscle is make it bigger. End of story. As for this endurance bullshit. That is cardio. As for lifting lighter weights more times... How many times do you think a power lifter with a 550 lb bench could bench 135 lbs? I guessing a fuck ton more than buddy-crossfit. Just saying...
