Weights gym safe disc bulge L 4 5 mirror doing leg press that seated and squats and lunges I no got build up core?

Back pain: Lunges and squats really put a lot of stress on the low back. You risk converting a bulging disc into a herniated disc. Isometric exercises are better to build the core muscles.

With a tailbone injury can you do strength training w weights ie squats,leg press, hip abducter and cardio - elliptical?

Varies: It varies somewhat based on the severity of the injury. If it is a fracture, you would be well suited to avoid exercises that put extra strain on that area such as seated military press, etc for 6-8 weeks. If it was more of a soft tissue injury, than basically you would just try to keep your activities to such a level that your pain is not aggravated, but could increase them as tolerated. ...Read more

Pain in both calves when walking up stairs and when using a exercising bike any leg lift exercising machine. No problem using a treadmill .

Walking stairs or stair stepper is better for exercise to avoid injury?

M 22 year old girl virgin. I do heavy weight training exercises in gym can doing squats,lunges,& exercising on leg press machine in gym break hymen?

No, but...: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen.
