Out of all the exercises there are for your legs… THIS ONE IS BY FAR THE WORST for your lower back!
I know you probably think I’m going to say squats or maybe even deadlifts, BUT, it’s neither of those.
One final hint for you: it’s true that I don’t like leg extensions but this is not the exercise that I’m talking about.
Give this one a watch. You may have already been stung by this exercise and never knew why. Now you will.
P.S. this is one of those videos that could give you an “aha” moment. So THAT’S why my back would always hurt after doing that exercise. I think you’re going to find it helpful. Please share it if it does.
P.P.S. Not all exercises are created equal. This is just another example of that. Not all workout programs are either. If you want to experience your fastest gains ever, it’s time to start training like an athlete. I’m ready for you…
