Re: Eliminate Back Pain, Rounded Shoulders & Poor Posture
Let me ask you a question.
If you sleep in a curled up position, sit down at a desk for the majority of the day,
and then spend most of your time exercising doing presses and cardio what do
you think that does to your back?
The quick answer is it rounds it out and hunches you forward tightening most of
the muscles on the front of your body (like your hips flexors, abdominal wall, and
chest). It also creates tight hamstrings which can severely affect your lower back
If you’ve ever had any back problems, it’s time we tweaked your exercise
program to help alleviate some of those back pain and tightness issues.
What we want to do is create an even balance between your front and back side.
Now, this type of exercising is not commonly used because most people only work
the muscles they can see in the mirror and not the ones on your back side
(posterior chain). This type of training leads to excess tightness, rounded
shoulders, and most likely a bad back.
Here’s how to fix that.
For every forward pressing or squatting movement I superset that with a pulling
or hip dominant movement to focus more on your glutes and hamstrings. You’ll
also want to make sure you work all parts of your core, including your lower back.
That means you’ll need to do a hip or back extension movement directly following
an ab crunch or sit-up type exercise.
It’s really a lot less complicated than you may think and I shot a quick video to
show you what one of the exercises you should do following an abs exercise
I hope it helps – here it is:
