Do you know that your lower back has a big role in running? When you run, you keep your body vertical, and sometimes for a long time. Your core muscles support your spine and lower back, and your core, hips, glutes, and hamstrings, together, form one big stability machine. So weakness in any one of those muscles forces the others to pick up the slack.

If you have weak hips and gluteal muscles, you can face the problem of lower back pain. You may experience symptoms, including muscular pain, pain in your lower back, and even arthritis. What can you do to reduce the pain?

A few stretching poses and some strength-building in your lower back muscles can prevent spasms and pain. So, we would like to present you with 6 exercises that can help you reduce lower back pain. By performing these exercises, you not only fix your pain, but also prevent it.

Our workout includes 6 exercises such as Planks, Back Extensions, Swiss Ball Pikes, Reverse Hip Raises, Hip Raises, and Cobra. Try to perform these exercises at least 3 times a week. Scroll down to see how perform these 6 effective exercises.
