When I worked construction I had an unfortunate accident where I fell through the main floor of a framing stage home and into the basement landing on the furnace and thus causing my now buldge in my back which is one of my discs it causes me great pain so I totally understand the frustration that comes with working out and then being in pain
What worked for me is taking it step by step....it has been 2 years since my injury and i just started working out 3 mnths ago....
I started with pilates, a basic beginner video and i followed the exercises slowly they helped stretch my back and yet at the same time the discomfort went from excruciating pain to tolerable
Now I am into alot of walking, biking((wish it didnt snow so i could use my bike more lol)) but it is a matter of pacing yourself and knowing its ok to not keep up to the video or move the fastest it is about building the muscle strength to support your body
Sorry I babbled on just I know the joys of back pain and arthritis soem days I can barely move so I do what I can and just keep moving....hope this helps
