You probably pay attention to your legs, abs, arms, glutes—but what about your back? Your back muscles are responsible for holding you upright and are an integral part of your core (a.k.a. your body's powerhouse!). Keeping those muscles in check is key to overall fitness.
But sadly, back pain is one of the most common physical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point in their lives. Lower back pain is the second most common reason people go to the doctor and the number one problem for Americans under the age of 45. That's 13 million people who go to the doctor for chronic back pain. Back problems can hinder the spine's flexibility, stability, and strength, causing stiffness and inevitably more discomfort. With this simple back strengthening sequence, you can prevent back problems and help support your backbone to the max for better alignment and pain relief.
