    Doing standing back rows with a herniated disc?

    Are standing back rows(with resistance bands) bad for your back? I have a herniated lower back disc and want to do this exercise because in the past i've found it helps with posture and overall symmetry.
    Additionally,what do you think about reverse fly's while standing?
    I've found sitting back rows are risky and making me worse.

    What about chest supported row? You will dont have to hold the weight with your low back, and you want to avoid it if u got herniated disc. Btw that herniated disc can be fixed with stretching and traction of the low back. Google - reverse hyper extension Louie Simmons

    Im not a doctor but standing strap rows could be something you can do.
    TRX or other(i use life line brand).
    Set the straps up high,hold each handle leaning back slightly and pull your body to the handles.
    Very little downward pressure on the discs.
    Also regular pull ups if you can do them may be an option as they traction the spine when your hanging in a vertical position.
    Of course it all depends how bad you issue is and you may want to see what a physical therapist or chiropractor recommends.

    Thank you a lot people!
    No unfortunately no access to benches, gyms are closed here in greece. Tried with a chair while sitting looking back but the chair gets close to breaking.
    Makes sense that there is no pressure on the discs. Unfortunately my PT has proven irrelevant so i came asking to you guys. I am getting better now, and i will start doing the rows like garage rat suggested. Will get back here to post how it's going.
    Pullups are safe indeed.
