A 27-year-old male asked:
Should i do weight training with a bad back or just stick to aerobic exercises?

Not enough info: I am sorry but that is an impossible question to answer in specifics without the radiology reports and a physical examination. Physical therapists, i would bet, would be able to come up with weight training and muscle training that may actually help the back rather than hurt it further.
