Common "Back Strengthening Exercises" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Back Strengthening Exercises

The lower back is most commonly affected due to improper posture, abrupt lifting of weights, and weak core muscles, which often leads to low backache and stiffness. Rotational stretches, knee-to-chest stretches, pelvic tilts, lateral leg tilts, planks, pull up, etc., are some back strengthening exercises done in repeated intervals and counts. These exercises strengthen the back muscles and prevent spine injuries and backaches.
