Is it safe to do weightlifting if you have lower back pain?
One of the more common complaints for lower back pain is after lifting weight. Which is why so many people believe it’s the cause of their lower back pain and are afraid to lift.
But it’s not the exercise that caused your lower back pain.
It’s how you got there.
Meaning, the lead up to when you exercised, or how you performed it. It’s true that if you lift too much weight, or lift with poor technique, you can make your back pain much worse.
But trust me, the solution is not to abstain from strength training. It’s to optimize your exercise technique, and manage load propererly.
