AVOID BACK PAIN IN YOUR WORKOUT



AVOID BACK PAIN IN YOUR WORKOUT

Back pain can really slow down a workout! Oftentimes when you’re trying to get results in the gym, it seems like getting in a few painful moves might be worth it–DON’T RISK IT! In fact, it’s much better to lay off the heavy training on days where your back hurts a bit more than usual, as you can cause much more damage than you might anticipate. For those of us with lower back issues like sciatica, yoga and deep stretching work wonders, when done correctly. Take a look at this collection of moves to stay away from, and what to replace them with.

Avoid These:

  • Crunches

  • Toe Touches

  • Overhead shoulder press

  • Sit-ups

  • Straight-Leg Deadlift

  • Leg Lifts

  • Bent-Over Row

  • Jogging or running

Try Instead:

  • Partial Crunches

  • Wall Sits

  • Bird/Dog

  • Double Knee-to-Chest

  • Pelvic Tilts/Bridges

  • Aerobic Exercise (Swimming/Low Impact Aerobics)

  • Some Pilates/Yoga

  • Cat and Camel.

  • Reverse curl-ups

  • Plank

  • Lateral raise
