How can we prevent back injury? We have all experienced back pain in one form or another. We have tried anti-inflammatory drugs, chiropractors, core exercises, acupuncture, meditation and many other forms of treatment. What if we learned that there are really three basic movements that we can do to make sure we are injury free? The only catch is that you must be consistent.
3 MOVES FOR AN INJURY-PROOF BACK
In my 23 years of training, I’ve had plenty of athletes come to me with what they assumed were “bad backs.”
Generally, their backs were fine. They were simply imbalanced in a few key muscle groups—the core complex and the glutes—and their backs were taking the brunt of that imbalance.
To bombproof your back you need to build a strong foundation, and by “foundation” I mean core. The muscles of your core include the abdominals, obliques, transverse abdominus “TVA”, pelvic floor muscles, and several others.
They each serve a common purpose, and that purpose is to support and stabilize your spine. The most effective way to build strength in this “core” group of muscles, that I have found, is by incorporating three basic movements, or rather anti-movements.
