I agree that you should consult your doctor, but to answer your question in a general way, you should invest in a door anchor. Set the anchor up high and you can do lat pulldowns with the band.

Hi Bookworm,

This is most definitely something you should ask your doctor about or possibly get a referral to a physical therapist to develop a program that will not be contraindicated for your situation. Unfortunately none of our members or experts are in a position to offer such exercise recommendations with someone recovering from surgery, illness or an injury. Sorry.

Due to a spinal fusion, my doctor recommends using resistance bands for back exercises and avoiding deadlifts/dumbbell rows. I don't have access to a gym so I can't use the lat pulldown machine and I can't do pullups because I am not strong enough. Can anyone recommend some good ways to work the lats with resistance bands?
