    Do tight ab muscles from doing lots of ab exercises contribute to back pain? Any ab stretches you should do after the exercises? I feel like I have some tight ab muscles that could be contributing to my back pain.

    Always with in our own opinion of course. But i mean, its the same as every pizza saying we have the number one pizza. Or tvs saying our tv is truly the best despite what other brands may say. Come here for the best chicken. lol.

    Looking forward to that video. Bed making is for sure a back killer. I find pulling things out of a dryer to be challenging from time to time too. The bending and reaching gets me sometimes.

    1.  I ended up with intercostal myofascia pain from shoveling and am still suffering.  Now it's going to snow next week.  I'll try this technique because I don't know how else I'm going to survive this winter.  2.  I make only half of the bed.  Works great!

    Great tip, I'll try it this winter. Another tip for shoveling snow; I push down with the hand on the end handle to throw the snow versus lifting with the hand that is midway.

    another thing to try is taking a breath & holding it while getting up from the floor, getting out of bed or just simply putting on shorts. it stabilisers things and spreads the load.

    Hi guys, watch layne Norton’s McGill back rehab video, Stu has a lot of coaching cues when demonstrating the video.

    Stu’s work has got me to pain free a few times already, last week I lifted a transmission out of my car without any extra pain.

    I have been using the recommended Thermatex since since I first saw it here. It is absolutely wonderful especially if you have the luxury of being able to use it as soon as you get out of bed.
    Using this with a lumbar support in my recliner has decreased my back related pains to just about nothing.

    I made the same discovery a couple of weeks ago when I was suffering from bursitis in my hip. Tightening the abs when I walked helped a lot with the pain.

    And if you practice shoveling with a Boyah stick you will be amazed at how well you perform shoveling when it’s time!

    I’m having a lower back event for the last few days. The neighbours must be amused watching me slowly painfully bend down to wipe my miniature dachshund behinds before letting them back in the house. Why do I have to have the lowest dog? Definitely will try this !

    Tightening your abs. and using leverage is So Good when shoveling dump trailer loads of mulch, lifting 100+ bales of straw and also mopping/vacuuming 20k' in a gym. Learning to switch hands and sides, left to right-right to left, is also good!

    Very helpful. My back hurts when I'm getting my steps in (doing in the 8000s right now, at age 77) and I walk with a cane, so I have a bit of a forward lean.
    You did a video recently for seniors with canes. I find when I straighten up my back hurts.
    So I am going to work on tightening my abdominal muscles and see how it helps.
    Thanks so much.
    Love your videos!

    My Dad was into psychical fitness, and he bullied me, constantly, to keep the stomach in, chin up, chest out and then he would have me back up to the wall and if he could put his hand through the small of my back and the wall he would straighten me out. I had miserable years under his watchful eye but a strong back.

    Brad you indicated a twisting motion exercise for your back while keeping one hand on the other ab. What equipment do you use for this exercise and what is the exercise. I've been reading allot about training across the mid line but not sure what to do. Could you put together a video with say 3 different exercises done correctly with say one type of equipment. Like a mini circuit session

    I am a CNA and worked 11:00–7:00 for 30 years in a 160 bed skilled care nursing home. Always taking care of heavy care residents in beds ,turning and positioning4 times a night to keep pressure sores away and it works. But it played havoc with low backs. It was always stressed to use your knees to lift but the weight is still transferred up the arms through the shoulders and onto your spine before it reaches your hips and legs. I am 76 and just retired 5 years ago after having bilateral knee replacement. I have been experiencing weakness in my lower legs with a feeling of having heavy socks on my lower legs. I have had an EMG and Doppler study which showed no problems found by either one. The neurologist thinks this is all coming from my back. Any recommendations?

    Why is this not taught in CNA classes? I have seen so many of my coworkers (CNA's and RN's alike) have to leave the medical field because of back issues. Just found out myself , I am developing arthritis in my low back.
