Back Pain Exercises

You can minimize low back pain with exercises that strengthen your hamstrings, abdominals, back, hips and thighs. Do not progress into any strengthening program until you have prepared your body aerobically for approximately 12 weeks. This prepares your body for the demands of a strength-training program. To achieve this aerobic/cardiovascular condition commit to recreational activities like swimming, walking, jogging, hiking or cycling.

Before beginning any strengthening and flexibility program you should warm up your muscles with slow rhythmic exercises for a total of 10 minutes. For example, walk indoors or outdoors at your home. Ensure you are breathing during all exercises i.e. exhale on exertion and inhale back to starting position.
