[tubepress video=”IHH6t65iEzU”] Ab and low back exercises should be part of your routine every time you workout. From warm up to strength training to flexibility, the region of the body often called the “core” needs to be trained properly. The muscles of the abdomen and low back need to be warmed up, stretched, trained, and allowed to recover just like every other muscle of the body. Find time to fit each aspect into your program and to address flexion, extension, and rotation of this area of the body. Do not forget that this area of the body also inhibits the body from completing these motions too. Incorporate exercises that promote stability like planks and anti-flexion/rotation exercises is important also.
