MarWin said: For low back pain I generally do 5 exercises. I do them as soon as I get out of bed. I do them in order, and I don’t skip any: Sitting Knee Pillow Squeezes (3 sets of 20 reps), Static Back Knee Pillow Squeezes (3 sets of 20 reps), Modified Floor Block (hold 6 minutes), Static Extension (hold 2 minutes), Airbench (hold 2 minutes). I will add these three if I really want to feel good and have some extra time: Static Back (hold minimum 5 minutes), Supine Groin Stretch (15 minutes per leg), Airbench (hold 2 minutes). Then I go to the gym and workout. After that I add a cool down routine: Static Extension (hold 3 minutes), Cats & Dogs (10 reps), Downward Dog (hold 1 minute), Airbench (hold 2 minutes)Again, these routines are specific to low back pain and pre/post weight training. I noticed results after the first time I did the LBP routine, but you might not see them that soon. If you do them (or any exercise) and proceed to sit down, or lay down, or be inactive you are not using the routine to your benefit. I notice the best results if I stay active for the majority of my day, rather than sitting at my desk, driving, watching tv, etc. Get up and stay in motion! OH! Make sure you consult with your doctor before doing any routine. I'm sure they're in the best shape!
