Getting Back into the Iron Game

As most of you know I have had a battle with my back lately. I have been going to physical therapy for about 2 weeks now. Been working on core strength to support my L5, which is the one that has a defect causing it to slip forward about 1/4 of the way.

Anyhow,I am asking for help designing a new routine to break myself back into lifting after almost 2 months off. Only lifts I am not alowed to do are, BUM BUM BUM....squats and deads [V]. So any help would be much abliged.(sp?)

    Are you allowed to do shoulder press as that's gonna put strain on your spine too isn't it?

    it defenitely helps....takes a lot of time though. like a full time job except for about 2 and half months you get light practices or days off.

    I take it Olympic lifts are out too...? They've helped my back a LOT, and evened out a few major imbalances at the same time.
