Best Weight Training Exercises for Back Pain – Part 1

If you have back pain, the first thing to do is make sure you have the professionals from the Spine Institute of North America on your side.  Back pain is treatable, and relief is possible with our pain management. That being said, our treatment will be more effective if you have good habits. Being active is one of the best ways you can help your back out. You don’t have to work out for hours – just focus on exercises that will help your back. There is a wide variety, so we invite you to read our next six blogs and find exercises that you enjoy!

Leg Press

This exercise requires machinery, so it’s a great option for anyone who enjoys weight training. When you do a leg press, you push weight away from your body with your legs. It’s an exercise that uses your quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteus. As with any exercise, make sure you start out easy so you don’t injure yourself right out of the gate. Make sure to keep breathing, especially when you push.

Prone Superman

You don’t need equipment for this one – just a padded floor. It works all the muscles of your core and there are several ways to do it. Lie face-down and stretch your arms above your head. Now it’s time to raise your feet and legs! You can alternate (right hand with left leg) or raise all your limbs at once. It will be a little difficult to breathe, but keep bringing air in.
