Low Back Pain Relief (ONE MOVE!)

Low Back Pain Relief (ONE MOVE!)


What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, AthleanX.com. Today I’m going to try to help you to get
rid of that low back pain once and for all. You see, you’ve got to start understanding
what’s causing the low back pain in the first place to really be able to conquer it. I think a lot of times the advice that people
that suffer from back pain get is just misdirected, and misguided. They’re looking at the location
of the pain without actually looking for the source of the pain and unless you get to the
source you’re never going to get rid of the pain once and for all. So today I’m going to show you an exercise
that you’ll want to start doing and I’ll give you different levels of progression depending
on how acute your back pain is. Okay, first of all, if you’re dealing with
a really bad back that doesn’t even allow you to move at the moment, you’re not supposed
to be in the gym exercising. What you’re supposed to be doing is allowing
that to heal, calm down, and control the inflammation. If you’re beyond that though and it’s more
of a chronic problem keeping you out of the gym or making the gym training sessions uncomfortable
then you’ve got to start with an exercise and start training those weak spots. 99% of the time what’s causing low back pain
is a weakness in a joint below that. In this case it could be the hips. It could be weak
hips and glutes that are basically putting you in the position to be compromised in your
low back. So what we do is, we have a setup here, and in this setup you see all I need
is a barbell and a band. The band I have anchored to the back of this
squat rack. However you anchor it, I have it on the back of some pins. Now I’m going
to get myself in position here behind the band and I’m not going to worry necessarily
about the bar just yet, especially if this is something that you’re not in an acute stage,
but you still have quite a bit of back pain and weakness. You get yourself into the bend and you just
walk forward. It kind of blocks your progression to the cage. Now what you want to do is, you
want to position the band right across the crease that happens right here in your hips,
okay? Because the first thing it wants to do is teach you what a hip hinge is. Most of us that have weak backs don’t’ really
know how to hinge correctly. It would feel like moving me into this position here – it’s
just pulling me back and when I let the resistance take over it pulls me back into a proper hip
hinge. It’s taking me at the hips and bending me right at those creases here right at the
top of my hips. If I were to put this higher, like against
my stomach, and I lean forward allowing this to take me back that actually has me fold
over the band. Right now I’m pulling myself into a flex position which is going to cause
problems for us that have low back pain. First thing, up here, now I walk forward. Now all I do is, I allow it to hinge me and
then I come back against the resistance of the band. Squeezing my glutes as hard as I
possibly can and also extending here, staying up nice and tall, to extend to the low back.
So now we’re tying together the glutes and the low back which are supposed to work together.
They’re both extending us. They’re both bringing up back in this direction.
We need them to be able to work in concert with each other. Most of us don’t have glutes
working at all so then the low back tries to accomplish that. The other thing you could
see that would happen is, if I don’t have the ability to extend because I don’t have
strong glutes – so I can’t extend – I start to have this posture where I fall forward
because I’m not extending through the hips. The more I fall forward, the more responsibility
is taken over by the low back and that’s trying to hold me up. You know what/ Doing that 24
hours a day, minus our sleeping time, is too much work for the low back to do alone. It
needs the help of the glutes. So get your ass to start working, literally. So now what
we do is, we can work out one side or the other. If I straddle here, one leg in front and I
let it pull me back, then I drive forward. Let it pull me back, then I squeeze forward.
What you’re going to find is the leg that’s dropped back is doing all the work. So if
I step this way it’s going to look like this. Hinge, squeeze forward, and it will work my
right side. Hinge, squeeze forward. I love this extension because it’s close chained.
It’s working us the way we’re going to be working all the time, which is predominantly
on our feet. Okay, so down, into the hinge, and then squeeze forward right here through
the glute. Now, you want to make it a little more difficult? If you have a healthier back, but one that
you know is weak now you can start tying in an RDL to it. That’s where our bar comes in.
So we grab down, we’ve got the bar, we walk forward just a little bit. Right here, against
the resistance of the band, now I allow it to hinge me down to knee height, maintaining
that arch in my low back, and I drive forward. I use my glutes here to squeeze forward. Down,
drive forward. See, at the top of this exercise we normally wouldn’t have much resistance,
but because the band is in place here I still have a lot of resistance now being applied
to the glutes. Now, last modification. If you really want to start taking this to the
next level you do this: come down, hinge, bent row, here, now drive forward. Hinge, bent row, here, now drive forward.
Now we’re tying everything together. We have hips, then lumbar spine, then thoracic spine
obviously because I’ve got to maintain extension through there, too. They’re all working to
pull.
So there you have it. Now you have a weapon in your arsenal to start attacking that back
pain of yours at its source. Remember, stop just looking for the location
of the pain and start trying to find the actual source of the pain. You’ll finally be able
to get rid of it once and for all. You can’t do that if you’re just looking at the symptoms
and trying to treat the symptoms, okay? This is just another example, guys, of how
we put the science back in strength. You’ve got to peel away the layers a little bit to
get to the bottom of what’s really going on. The human body is pretty complex. We’ve got
to be smarter than it to be able to solve its problems and back pain is one of the biggest
ones we have to deal with on a daily basis. Guys, if you’re found this helpful make sure
you leave your comments and thumbs up below. In the meantime, if you want a program that
trains you like and athlete, puts your feet on the ground to train you like an athlete
and helps you to get bigger, faster, and stronger while putting the science back in what we
do; I would head to AthleanX.com right now and get our Athlean-X training programs. In the meantime, I’ll see you guys back here
again real soon. Let me know what you want to see. Leave your comments below and I’ll
do my best to bring them to you here in the coming weeks. I’ll see you soon.

    Google “Kemzαnο Loni” back pain guide to find out why it’s efficient. It significantly relieved my serious chronic back pain brought on by a recent injury. I was able to position well in my side or back, alleviating a few of the spasms..

    First, thank you for all of your help. You are helping me fix my lower back issues. One thing I’ve discovered, could just be me, but when ever I focus on the weight distribution on my feet and concentrate that weight and push off on the smallest point of my heel (achieved by lifting the majority of my foot off the ground so that only my heel is touching) it really causes my glutes to engage.
    Otherwise, if my feet are flat on the floor I feel as if I’m pushing more with the ball and toes which makes my quads bear the load completely neglecting my glutes. That small little detail, literally simple as pushing off on the different parts of my foot, will engage two completely different muscle groups.
    I haven’t come across any videos talking about this so maybe it is just me and how my anatomy works but if you have any insight as to why I’d appreciate it.

    I feel like my pain is different than what’s described in this video. It hurts/feels stiff when I bend over to touch the floor and when I go into a backbend. When I avoid those movements there’s no pain. It only hurts with bending. Along with that my legs feel tired/fatigued when I wake up and at the end of the day it’s worse. It feels like they’re never fully rested. It feels like I’ve been on my feet all day. When I drive for a long time I get random shoots of pain in my legs/hip sometimes. Stretching doesn’t help. Yoga makes it worse. Chiro said I have a over pronounced curve in my spine (belly protruding forward too much) Help

    You need something to remind you of your posture in those moments when you're not thinking of it like when your sleeping or driving or sitting at the desk at your office. For me all three of those things apply to my pain and I didn't even realize it until I addressed it. I personally have a long commute to work and it's hard to stay focused on your posture when you have to sit in the car for hours and this product ( https://amzn.to/2tdVPpi) really helped with my lower back pain within the first week. It just takes time to retrain your spine to hold its natural curve but once you do you can really feel the difference.

    I can expect a new revelation in just about every video, and I’ve been doing this a long time. One thing that sets AthleneX apart is Jeff’s understanding that, when it comes to physical fitness, it’s rarely black and white. Everyone is built differently. And with all of that grey area to cover he has something for everyone, and everything. Cavaliere’s knowledge (practical and theoretical) is on a level of its own. Despite having followed AthleanX for some time, I sure wish I would have known of Jeff Cavaliere decades ago. Keep ‘me coming. Thanks Jeff!

    A bulging disc is often a reason for back pain. Maintaining the arch in your back when this or other exercises is the way to go as you are demonstrating. I’ll add this exercise to the other ones to help a bulging disc.
