A workout routine to help strengthen your back muscles.
Holiday season is incredibly special for me. It’s that time of year where I get to see my family, socialize and make the most of the beautiful festive atmosphere that permeates the many parties and dinners I go to.
As much as I love it, though, I have noticed that with the hustle and bustle of the season also come some difficulties around these social events: sitting for a long time in the same position, or standing for longer than I’d like to, can become obstacles to my fully enjoying these moments. And the culprit is always back pain! I bet you know what I’m talking about. So, today, I want to share with you an amazing back training routine that will help you get rid of lower back pain and enjoy your time sitting at the table with family and friends.
Being able to rely on a strong back is key to leading a healthy, pain-free life. Did you know that posture can even determine your levels of happiness and productiveness? The stronger your back is, the more aligned your spine will be, and the better you will feel as you naturally age. Many people tend to skip lower back pain exercises to strengthen those important muscles and bones, and just rely on painkillers when it looks like the pain will never go away, ultimately worsening their condition. This is why it’s crucial that we take care of our back pain and work towards preventing it: my back training routine aims at doing exactly that.
So, whether you’re looking for back pain exercises at home, exercises for lower back pain from sitting, or a way to prevent such problems, you’re in the right place! Let’s get into my back training routine.
Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain. This portion of the spine often gets overloaded and accustomed to wrong posture - did you just sit up straighter after reading this? - which leads to spinal issues and muscle pain that can extend to your glutes. Always remember to consult with a healthcare professional if you suffer from chronic or severe back pain.
Not only do these exercises help strengthen your lower back, but they’re also great for improving spinal extension and overall back muscle strength!
Here it is, my favorite routine for a strong back, no matter your age! Strengthen your back with these exercises to ensure lots of pain-free, delightful holiday dinners and events with your loved ones.
