Default Squats

I seems that my lower back won't allow me to squat anymore, what else can I do to work the lower body?

Any advive will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

whats wrong with your lower back?

i'm not a certified trainer, but my first guess would be that you're attempting to do more weight than you're capable of doing with correct form. try dropping that and working on your range of motion.

I too am not a trainer but.... Do leg press, leg extensions, seated calf raises, lunges, hamstring curls, etc.

Just be careful about not doing too much weight. Also, try some stretching and light weight back exercises to help strengthen your back.

I used to put too much weight on my back when younger, at 30 now my lower back is done, I need to find a different way to work my lowerbody, it was so bad that I couldnt put my socks one day, I'm basically done with squats. I kinda hate doing light weights, it makes me feel lazy.

Light weights and more reps is much better for you than too much weight with fewer reps.

Have you considered doing yoga? Try out a yoga class... I'm sure that will help your lower back feel better and the ration of girls to guys is great!

Leg presses on a machine....see if it helps with the back.
Also, those one legged lunges will work the snot out of your legs...without all the weight on your upper.

Foam Rolling is great to literally "roll out soreness". I used to HATE squatting and doing heavier weights but after you foam roll you feel relieved and you aren't as sore. Make sure to stretch before and after any workout btw.

As others have said, Leg Presses, Leg Curls, Calf Raises, Lunges (reverse lunges actually help with less tension btw) are all great exercises to work your legs and lower body.

Trainer here. Pain directly on the spine? Hopefully no serious disk/vertebral problems have occurred. Regardless, go to a physical therapist to address any postural distortions. They will assess the injury and check if your local core musculature is firing properly around the lumbar spine. Look forward to plank variations, single leg squats and bridges. Enjoy the fresh start, foam roll & stretch everyday.
