Have you ever hurt your back doing something super basic…like sneezing? I’ve seen a few memes about how when we were in our 20s we could get away with anything but now if you sneeze you throw out your back. 🙈

And while back pain may seem like something you have to wait out from the couch, there’s a lot you can do to strengthen your back – none of which is crunches.

Core strength is more than being able to do a bunch of sit-ups – it’s the ability to support and stabilize your entire spine, regardless of the movement.

So if you’ve ever thrown out your back doing something super simple and want to learn how to get rid of back pain, today’s episode is for you.
