This one’s for my Bs with SCIATICA – a STRENGTH workout that’s good for your low back pain! We’re combining a quick core strength and stretching session with some traditional standing dumbbell work for a full body tone up that’s designed to help relieve and prevent sciatic pain.
Here are the FAST FACTS: ALL levels | ALL standing, NO cardio | DUMBBELLS | BURN 75 – 125 calories | MODERATE day | INCLUDES warm up + cool down
** Disclaimer: please see your doctor about YOUR specific low back pain for diagnosis and treatment, and follow the advice of your health care provider and/or physical therapist
Standing strength workouts are always good for your muscle tone and bone density, but this routine is specifically designed to protect your lower back from strain, with no transitions to the ground and exercises that don’t reach above your head or twist.
We’re taking things at a MODERATE pace today, with moderate weights, so we can really focus on excellent form.
