I spent the morning at Brick New York coaching and working out and found a few minutes to record a couple of videos.
Most people I meet want to know how to bring relief to their lower backs. The lower back can be the nexus for a lot of pain and tension due to myriad reasons: poor mechanics, over use, under use, fatigue, poor proprioception, as well tissue dysfunction. Going after the Quadratus Lumborum with a Yoga Tune Up® Alpha ball is a great place to start. This is one of those areas that can be quite tender so if the pressure is too much try to do this standing at the wall with the Alpha ball. Test and retest your forward bend before and after to see if you have increased range of motion.
