Your lower back is an often forgotten part of your core.
It's just as important to strengthen your lower back muscles as it is to strengthen your abdominals.
Most lower back pain is caused by an imbalance between your abs and lower back muscles.
Weak and/or tight lower back muscles are an injury waiting to happen. We use these muscles in almost everything that we do!
The lower back extension is a really good exercise to strengthen those muscles. It also provides a stretch to relieve the tightness in the muscles. You get a double benefit from this really simple exercise.
