Nice video Mike. I think stretching is one of the most overlooked things that should be done before any kind of focused activity. Stretching exercises help maintain flexibility and range of motion and can prevent all sorts of muscle and joint problems throughout life.

I do that stretch pretty much everyday myself and it really helps to keep me flexible. It also helps out a lot of my golfers too to get rid of their back pain.

I really like your progression approach with that stretch too, it seems to make it much more effective.

You really can’t over do this other than doing it too much :roll: . If you try to arch beyond your capabilities you could get a pinching in the lower back, and you’ll feel it happening. Stop and get out of that uncomfortable position. You’ve then gone too far!

The KEY is to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY the entire time you stretch AND strength train.

Those are two excellent stretch excercises. I have been doing a series of hockey stretch excercises that are applicable to most sports and they incorporate these stretches and more. A real good one is to lay with your back of the floor. Raise your legs while bending at the knees and place your hands behind the knees. Pull your knees into your chest, or as far as you can go comfortably, and hold for 20 seconds. The idea here is to stretch the lower back in addition to the buttock muscles.

Great video. I’ll try doing those stretches in my office daily. I have two blown disks in my lower back, so i know stretching and strengthening my core is key if i’m going to continue playing. Thanks again.

Thanks for this Mike! I’ll start doing these asap! Even though my back has felt great here recently, I don’t ever want it to hurt again and will take all the preventative measures that I can so it doesn’t hurt again.

I really liked the idea of stretches but when i tried them i couldnt get up and had to see my osteopath. That said after my back was cracked several times it felt great and my golf has never been better, thanks Mike if this hadnt have happened I would never had gone to the osteopath and my handicap would still be 3 shots worse.

I liked your video very much Mike! As someone who has had some back pain I know the benefits of stretching. I was able to relieve a lot of pressure on my lower back by following a stretching routine and doing the stretches you have shown above.

I also think a good area to focus on for back pain is your butt muscles. I really think this helped relieve my sciatic pain as those tense muscles were compressing against the nerve.

My fiance keeps having lower back pains and he refuses to have it checked by the doctor. Which brings to the question: Why are men so stubborn?! Haha, kidding. :-p I’ve bookmarked this page so I can let him read it later! Thanks!

Great video for those who are suffering from back pain like me. You can also try Inversion Table Workout if you are suffering from this pain. It works for me for almost 6 months and it might work for you too.

Great video! These back stretches can also be performed before getting out of bed every morning. It keeps the back muscles flexible and stronger.
