Do you experience pain in your back when lifting weights? Do you lose motivation to work out because of it? Watch this video tutorial on how to lift weights without hurting your back, and i’ll give you some tips on how to do that.

Let’s start with what you should do initially before you even start working out. One thing you do want to focus on if you are having lower back issues, is strengthening your core. Strengthening everything around your lower back is going to help as well.

The next thing is people tend to have tight muscles. You need to loosen your muscles. Before getting into your workout, it is nice to get some blood flow going to your muscles. A hamstring stretch is one that I really want you to focus on. You can do them on the ground or standing up. Make sure to avoid rounding your back when you are doing this stretch, hinge at the hips and keep your back straight.

Glute stretches are also really good to do, and the last stretch I want you to do is a hip flexor stretch. Doing these stretches is going to help your back feel more relaxed before you start training your back.

The next thing you need to focus on is making sure that you do your exercises correctly. Here are a few exercises that people tend to do with bad form and lead to a hurt back…

The first exercise is the Bent Over Row. You do not want to just bend over, and you also want to avoid having the weight far out in front of you. Any kind of bending over exercise, you want to make sure that you are hinging at the hips. Push your glutes back and have your torso upright, it doesn’t need to be bent over at a 90 degrees angle. When you pull the weight, you want to pull it in to your lower abs.

Another exercise is Deadlift. When you are doing a deadlift, keep your hands close to your body. Keep your chest out and have your shoulders back, and just pull straight up keeping the weight close to you. Do this, as opposed to just bending over and pulling the weight up to avoid too much stress being put on your back.

The last exercise is the Romanian Deadlift. It is a similar as if you are doing a standing hamstring stretch. As you go down, you are sticking your butt out. Right before you start rounding forward and get the full stretch, then you go back up.

Remember… The stronger your core gets, the easier on your back and the better your workouts will become.
