Lower Back Ache.

Hi Folks,
I seem to have developed an ache in my lower back. Is this because of the exercise, or mostly due to incorrect posture?

Do you recommend any specific exercises to strengthen the lower back? Or any specific ones to avoid?


Cheers!
The Weakling..

    What do you mean by an ache,muscle soreness following a workout or a pulled muscle.

    Deadlifts,stifflegged deadlifts,squats all work the lower back.

    Make sure you have sufficient strength in your core muscles to cope with the other heavy exercises youre doing!

    Im quite tall and have had lower back pain for years and the absolute best way for me to get rid of (and prevent) the pain is to stretch my hamstrings :) i only found out recently that this works, but im really quite inflexible and could not evn touch my toes with straight legs, stretching a few times a week has really helped. Also now im doing deadlifts i find my back feels stronger than ever.
    Of course this may not apply to you, you may have injured yourself, but its worth a try if youre inflexible just have a good stretch for 5mins or so.

    Well my pain is just a throbbing kind of pain that I keep on feeling. It makes motion really difficult when it occurs. Usually it subsides in a while. I am about 6 feet tall.

    My advice would be to see a chiropractor to see if there's a physical issue.
    For core stregthening I would suggest hypers and slowly getting into deadlifts, SLD.

    Good mornings are also a good movement for the lower back

    Do any of you get lower back aches from driving for long periods?

    No I usually get the lower back aches from sitting in a chair in front of a computer.

    dont go doing hypers or good mornings or anything like, get checked out, the last thing you want to is train it without being assessed.

    you should never ask advice on forums when its comes to injuries

    Thanks a lot folks. My back-pain has now completely disappeared. I did some yoga postures for my lower-back prior to exercises. Now my back-pain has disappeared.

    Cheers,

    Is your chair and desk at the right height? Do you keep good posture?



    What do you mean by Dorsal Raises? Yoga seems to be working for me just as well.
    I don't think I am able to maintain a good posture for a long period of time. After some time, my back starts to sink in the chair. My section of the office has chairs designed to torture the person sitting in them. I guess they got them cheap from some dealer.
