Ok, so the next exercise we are going to do
to reduce back pain is actually targeting our abdominals. So, what we are going to do:
we are going to lie back, we are going to tuck our legs into our chest, and rock from
left to right. We are going to rock in a way where we go as far over to the left as we
can without falling on the ground, and as far right as we can without falling onto the
ground. Really engage the abdominal muscles, and bend your strength in this exercise. So
now I will demonstrate the left-right rock: 1) I am going to lie on my back. Make sure
I’m in a good position, and really feel my body to see if I’m aligned–to feel the alignment.
2) Next, I’m going to tuck my legs into my chest, and I’m going to wrap my arms around
my legs. 3) So now all I do is rock left to right. Really hold it. Really engage the abdominals
so you won’t roll all the way over. And then rock it to the other side, really concentrating
on going as far over, and keeping the core engaged, keeping those abdominal muscles engaged
so I won’t fall all the way over to the left or to the right. Slow and controlled we want
to make these movements, and really breathe. And I’ll keep doing these. I’ll do about 10
sets on each side. This is just another way to reduce lower back pain.
