Today's MWod is for all of you who suffer from back pain. This video is great because it helps you determine why you're getting back pain. Do you overextend your spine? Do you have tight posterior chain muscles? It's important to know how you move so you can correct your issues and get rid of your pain. Yes! You can be pain free..really.
Burpees are notorious for their ability to fire up your low back. Do you know why? Because when we get tired we let our backs sag and we don't engage our core muscle as we move up from the floor. Keep your core engaged when you do today's workout. Your back will thank you for it.
