Two Biggest (Preventable) Causes of Low Back Pain
Unfortunately, low back pain is running rampant in today’s world.
I don’t care who you are, suffering from low back pain is one of the fastest ways to start hating life, and increase your daily misery level.
So, what can you do to make sure you aren’t a helpless victim who falls prey to the villainous low back pain demon?
Fortunately, the two biggest causes of low back pain are entirely preventable.
And, this is going to sting, but I’m saying that for 98% of people suffering from low back pain, it’s because of their own doing.
Yes, that means you are causing your own pain.
However, because the two biggest causes of low back pain are preventable, that means you can also reverse it. Rid yourself of it. No more low back pain.
So, what are the two (preventable) causes of low back pain?
#1. Excessive sitting
#2. Lack of butt specific exercise
Sit Less to Awaken Your Sleeping Giants
People these days are sitting more than ever. And, long periods of sitting force the butt muscles to essentially “turn-off”.
This is bad because the butt muscles are designed to be the biggest, most powerful muscles in your body.
It’s the Football equivalent of having your biggest, strongest offensive linemen sitting on the bench the whole game.
What good does that do?
So, in short, sitting less will help you awaken the sleeping giants that are your butt muscles.
Listed below are two techniques you can use to start sitting less:
#1. Standup every 20-30 minutes –> Breaking up long periods of sitting with quick standing is great way keep your butt happy and your back healthy.
#2. Use a sit/stand desk –> Even better than simply standing every 20-30 minutes is to use a sit/stand desk. With this type of desk you can alternate between periods of sitting, and standing, while still continuing to work.
The main takeaway is that sitting less is good for keeping your butt muscles happy, and your back healthy.
Lack of Butt Specific Exercise
A common problem with most workout routines, which keeps your butt saggy and your back miserable, is that a lack of butt specific exercises.
Yes, squats, deadlifts, and lunges are all a great start, but they only paint part of the butt lifting/healthy back picture.
Are you working out the muscles on the side of your butt (gluteus medius)?
Weak side butt muscles (I know, real scientific terminology here) are common in people suffering from low back pain.
Maybe you should strengthen those.
What about using hip bridges (the correct way) to take your butt through the exact opposite position of sitting…
Are you doing that?
Do you enjoy suffering from debilitating low back pain?
Do you enjoy having legs that look like they connect right to your back (aka, pancake booty syndrome)?
Now, I’m not asking you these questions to be rude.
No, simply to fire you up to get serious about why firming up your butt can actually help your back, too.
So, you may be wondering when the heck you’re going to get the workouts to do.
