7 Core Exercises for Low Back Pain IMPORTANT

What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. So, we've been talking a lot about mobilitylately, and this being a Washboard Wednesday, we're going to talk about it again. But we're going to identify two common problemsthat a lot of people will get a lot of times when doing ab exercises and that is they'll feel either tight or sore in theirhip flexors or they'll get low back pain. And the common root cause of both of thosethings is actually possibly your abs. You see, a lot of times people will look atwhere the symptom is and treat the symptom,

ie, they'll stretch their hip flexors outand say, 'God, I'm not getting any better.' Or, they'll stretch their low back out andsay, 'God, I'm not getting any better.' But, if you want to train like an athlete, if youwant to look below the surface, as a Physical Therapist, that's what I have to do in order to earna living, we've got to look a little bit deeper. We have to find what the root cause is, andthe abs can absolutely be the cause of both of those issues. And a matter of fact, they could be playinga large part in creating a vicious cycle to

make that problem even worse. So, how doesthis all happené Well, the first thing that we have to understandis that our body really wants to create stability through our spine. Our spine is the most importantstructure in our entire body. We know that injury to the spine can be debilitating.So, if our body is out to protect the spine at all cost, it's going to enlist stabilityand the help of other muscles to do that. So, our abs and our core are one of the biggestareas we have to be able to provide the stability that we need against potential harm to ourspine, but guess whaté A lot of us don't have really strong cores.And if we don't, we'll start asking for help

in other muscle groups, and that happens mostoften in the hip flexors. The hip flexors because of their attachmentto the lumbar spine, they run all the way up through our body and attach to the lower5 vertebrae of our spine. That will provide us with some stability fromthe bottom up, and again, through the low back right to our lumbar spine. So we will get stability of our spine, butnot with the muscles that we're looking for in the first place. So, what's the solutionhereé Again, stretching the hip flexorsé No. Becausethe hip flexors need to be strong and on call

all day long because your abs aren't' doingtheir own job. So, then people finally might get to the bottomof it and they're told to go train their abs. What's the problem thereé You start doing ab exercises that contributemore to the problem because 90 percent of ab exercises especially if done improperlyare going to overwork the hip flexors. So, I wanted to put together for you heresome options that you might have especially if you're dealing with low back pain or you'vegot those hip flexors on fire all day long. Here's some ab exercises that you'll be ableto do that will take the hip flexors right

out of it and allow you to actually strengthenyour abs without further making this problem worse. Alright. Take a look at these exercises. Alright, first up is the Janda Sit Up. Nowthis is one that we've used before in some of our other tutorials, and this is really aclassic example of how we can try to turn the hip flexors off. We know that there's something called reciprocalinhibition that if you contract a muscle on one side of a joint, we can actually try toturn off the muscle that's on the opposite
