Lower Back Exercise Videos
About the Lower Back Exercise Videos
Although your back is one of the 3 largest muscle groups in the body although
when people refer to 'the back' when talking about exercise, they usually
separate the exercises into lower and
upper back (or lat) exercises.
Across the world the lower back muscles seem to be the source of endless
problems. It is easy to get an idea why if you take a quick look at the anatomy
of the lower back.
The primary musculature of the lower back consists of the
erector spinae muscle group (iliocastalis, longissimus & spinalis) which
extends all the way from the hip to the base of the skull. Combine the
anatomy with the nerves of the spine and any misalignment or muscle strains
involving this long muscle group could cause problems and back pain.
The above paragraph illustrates the importance of using proper form while
tying these lower back exercise videos. Most of the lower back exercises
are multi-joint movements in which the lower back functions as a stabilizer in
addition to providing movement.
Please be sure to use correct form and a slow
tempo while doing low back exercises to lessen the chances of injury. It should
go without saying to avoid using excessive weights until you have impeccable
exercise form as well as begin with light weights and progress.
