Let's say the average mass about L5-S1 is about 120 lbs.

I absolutely do agree that walking will put more than 120 lbs of force on your spine. Just not that every step generates a force of 300 lbs.

It's got me wondering now actually what those forces would be though...

Regardless I don't plan on testing it. Live my life, do some light resistance training... brisk walking... But that's about it.
L4-L5 Broad Diffuse Bulge, mildly contacting left L5 nerve root
L5-S1 Broad Central Disc Protrusion mildly impinging left S1 nerve root
"Mild scoliosis of lumbar spine".
Four central disc protrusions in thoracic spine.

C5-C6, C6-C7 bulging, bone spurs. Imaging not looking good. Successful CP-ESP's placed in Oct 2019 by Dr. Desai.

Delayed lumbar surgery to work on bone density. Considering options now, some but minimal bone density improvement. Will only use LP-ESP.
