The Top Article of the Week
Injuries are an unfortunate occurrence whether they take place during training or day to day activities, and can impact heavily on ability to train. Many use injuries, especially to the lower back, as an excuse not to train at all, however there are intelligent solutions to train around and/or through lower back pain to strengthen without causing further damage.
Dr. John Rusin offers a step by step guide to assess your own pain and how you can modify movements in order to rehabilitate and make progress in lower body training, thus nullifying any arguments that training with lower back pain should be completely avoided.
