5 Ways to Prevent Lower Back Pain

Most people assume that lower back pain is just one of those things that seem to come after us all. Whether you hurt your back moving or you perform an exercise incorrectly, lower back pain can become a real pain really fast. The stigma that we all “must” experience it doesn’t have to be true. Let’s take a look at the 5 ways that you can prevent lower back pain from happening to you.

  1. Focus on Form

First and foremost, when it comes to exercise or even simple functional movements such as properly bending down to pick something up, you need to master the form. The best way to do this is to hire a personal trainer, even if it’s only for a few weeks. Better your form to better your chances of avoiding lower back injury.

  1. Train Your Core

Core doesn’t mean just your abdominals. Core stands for the entire midsection from the abdominals to the obliques to the lower back itself. When building a workout program, be sure to incorporate a couple of days dedicated to strengthening your core.

  1. Stretch

Even though it’s not as glamorous as spending time on the bench or squat rack, you MUST stretch. Stretching helps to support proper muscle length-tension relationships. This will ensure you alleviate your tightness and reduce your risk of strains or pulls due to over-worked muscles.

  1. Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage might be a bit more painful than you’re used to but it’s completely worth it. This type of massage was designed to break up knots (tension) and restore muscle length-tension relationships. Again, this will ensure you are reducing your risk of injury by staying loose and limber.

  1. Wear a Sauna Suit

One of the easiest ways that you can help to protect your lower back is to simply wear a sauna suit. The neoprene sauna suit that you’ll find only with Kutting Weight has been scientifically proven to be extremely beneficial for your health. Not only does it support a healthy weight loss and enhance your performance but the Kutting Weight sauna suit can also boost recovery and support injury prevention.

Not only can you boost your immunity (great for cold season) but you can also protect your body and help it repair faster when you are injured or sore. Sauna use has been proven to trigger a spike in growth hormone production. Growth hormone is one of the key hormones for inducing repair and recovery.

What’s more, heat shock proteins are also released during the use of a sauna. This can help you build better connections between muscle groups when training your core.

Lucky for you, there’s no need to pay the expensive price of a sauna because you have the Kutting Weight sauna suit. This neoprene weight loss sauna suit has been shown to capture the same benefits of a real sauna at a fraction of a cost and far more convenience.
