LOWER BACK EXERCISES
Lower back pain is one of the most common problems that most people face at some point. It's been shown that about 80% of the adult population will at some point in their life deal with some type of significant lower back pain. There are however some things you can do to minimize the risk and to rehabilitate it once it is hurt.
First of all, it's important to understand the causes of lower back pain. There are many causes, but in short they can be summed up into three main things.
1. Weak core / lower back
2. Tight and/or weak hamstrings
3. Tight hip flexors
Watch the video where I discuss exercises you can do for each of these. Another thing to point out is that simply by moving more each day and sitting less, that along can go a long way towards dealing with lower back pain. The longer you sit, the more you'll end up slouching. If you're sitting at a desk for long periods of time, make sure you get up at least once an hour or so and move around. Another thing that can really help is to either use a standing desk or sit on a stability ball or ball chair. If you sit for your job, then sit with correct posture which the ball or ball chair can help you do.
