Number of things: Careful lifting weights with back pain, especially if you have not been assessed and pain worse with impact. Recommend stretching and core strengthening exercises. If you have any radiaiting pain, have assessment by physician. Try starting with lower impact exercises (walking core, swimming) and working way back to high impact. May have spondylolysis, xray could help diagnose. Hope that helps!
