This month we dive into a part of the body that inhibits a massive part of the population especially between the ages of 40 – 55. The lower back.
Throughout all of the years that we have been around and doing “things” (active and non-active) the imbalances that we have created usually creates a weakness in this area of the body.
Simply, because there are so many massive amounts of different forces that go through the lower back it eventually something will give out, and when it does we become bed ridden for days.
This month we are going to look at:
• Anatomy 101: Hip Flexion. Surprisingly, hip extensors do play an important role in lower back quality and function
• Injury Report: Jump Up and Jump Around. This blog will look at Jumper Knee and finish off with knee and we will look at how strengthening the hip flexors and extensors also strengthens the knee, and in the
• Squat Report, we will look into the lower back and look at the different forces and muscles and how they play a pivotal role in the function, quality, and efficiency of you performing the squat.
I know that this may seem like it is going all over the place but it very hard for anyone to discuss what is going on in the body by segments as the body uses itself as a unit. So, thank you for bearing with me on this and by the end of the year you will see that since we broke down the squat, a squat is just a squat at the end.
