people with back problems.
Combine that with all the people I’ve helped in my training business with back pain and I’ve

person listed above, why don’t you give this home bodyweight workout a try to help relieve your back
You’ll notice your posture improves, you’ll stand taller and you’ll even lose a little

Do this home bodyweight workout as a circuit,
moving from one exercise to the next without resting (or very little rest). Complete as many total circuits as you
can in 10 minutes.

1A) Bodyweight Squat – 15 reps

1C) Hip Extension – 20 reps
1D) Mountain Climber – 30 seconds
1E) Bodyweight Reverse Lunge – 12 per leg
1F) Plank – 30 seconds
Hopefully after doing this bodyweight workout for a
few weeks, you’ll notice your back pain going away plus you’ll feel a heck of a lot better.
