Many of my clients have struggled with low back pain at some point or another and it’s an area that I pay special attention to since I’m a runner. Running (and many other sports) can place stress on your lower back – especially if you have tight hamstrings. So, it’s important to stretch your low back (and hamstrings) a few times a week to help your range of motion and prevent injuries. Try these simple stretches that I recommend in this “Stretches and Workout Tips” series I did for eHow.com.
Special thanks to the Tellepsen YMCA for letting us shoot at their amazing facility!
*Remember- for more intense stretches make sure you warmup at least 5 minutes before.
