Hey, I hope you are having a great weekend.
Today, I have a couple of moves for men to help overcome back pain. Give the moves below a go.
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I had Andrea demonstrate.
#1 – Lie Down on Your Stomach
Lying on your stomach is a low-stress position, so it allows your back muscles to loosen up and decreases the pressure on your back. For probably 95 percent of people, lying on their stomach and extending slightly in the back helps.
Lie down in this position for 30 seconds to 2 minutes and see how your back feels.
#2 – Lie Down on Your Forearms
Move up on your forearms slowly, extending the lower back slightly. Hold this for 10 to 15 seconds. Lie back down on your stomach and then do another extension. See what works best for you; 5-second, 10-second or 15-second hold.
#3 – Press Up
Place your hands just underneath the shoulders. Push up, arching at the back until your arms are straight, and then lower back down. Try to focus on arching your back and the rest of the body. You can straighten your arms out and back down if you can, but if you can only get half-width, that’s perfectly fine.
Go through 5 repetitions in a smooth, controlled movement and hold the end position for a second. You can progress to 2-second holds and then back down. Start with 5 repetitions, then you can progress to 10 repetitions.
Give those three moves a go to provide back pain relief.
