Many of us suffer from lower back pain, and it can be quite a challenge and very frustrating training legs once you start getting extreme lower back stiffness.
I put together this workout, which has allowed me to train legs harder then ever by working around pain buildup. I really concentrate on quads first to make sure my hamstrings and glutes don’t tighten up too early in my workout.
Along with daily stretching of your hamstrings and glute muscles, you will feel like a million bucks!
