Lower back pain will keep you from squats and deadlifts but it should not prevent you from strengthening your legs!

The truth is that you MUST learn how to deadlift in order to fix your low back pain (long term).

One of the biggest challenges while dealing with a low back injury is the ability to strengthen your hips and legs but this can easily be done. 

There are a lot of things you need to do to help your lower back but the reverse lunge is hands down one of the best ways to help your lower back because it helps to strengthen your legs and does not increase the risk of re-injury to the lower back!


If you are tired of constantly getting injured, NOW is the time to fix this issue before it gets worse OR becomes more permanent.  What will happen when you lose the ability to bend, lift, and walk for long periods of time?  Forget your favorite exercise or fitness activity if you cannot even do the basic things!

If you want to get better, DO NOT avoid this.

Many of my patients find this extremely helpful and most people go back way too soon to exercises or movements that cause increases in pain or pressure to the lower back!

Stick with this exercise for at least 3-4 weeks and you’ll have a way to avoid injury while strengthening your legs and lower back!
