All too often we leave our back, well on the back burner. We're more concerned with our abs, our arms and our butts to name a few. What we're not realizing though is that without a healthy and strong back, we're nothing but slouching, curled up versions of ourselves. Varying degrees of Quasimoto. Not cool.
You know this pain!
How debilitating is it when you pull a muscle in your back, or have a chronic ache in your lower back? You're squirming in your seat, struggling to find some modicum of comfort that comes only in short waves. Strong backs assist in everything, even helping to build up ab strength. Yeeees, that's right. Abs are built along with strong backs. They're partners in crime. Cheech and Chong. Bo and Luke Duke. Ross and Rachel. (Probably more so like Ross and Rachel due to all the drama and on again off again, we were on a break thing. Our back aren't always happy, just like them.)
What's to do then?
Next time you find yourself with 15 minutes of nothing to do (basically when you peel your eyes from your iPhone), do this quick exercise and begin strengthening your back. Start with no weights and then work up to adding a little weight to really start noticing improvements.
Try doing each move for 30 seconds, one right after the other. Once you do all three, rest for 1 minute, and then repeat again for 3-5 rounds!
C'mon, you can do this!!
