The pandemic has meant that lots of us tall guys aren’t as physically active as we’d usually be. This can lead to real problems with lower back pain but don’t worry, we’re here to help!
Whether you're tall or skinny and tall, as tall guys, we're often plagued with lower back pain, which has only been exacerbated during these challenging times.
There are solutions though! Check out our man Mike, 6'10"/208cm, demonstrating some of the best stretches for dealing with lower back pain.
This is a great stretch to open up some space in your lower back and lower vertebrae.
Breathe through the whole process, and on each exhale, try to bring your knees slightly closer to your chest.
This stretch is surprisingly good for sorting out our notoriously bad posture. Although you're stretching your legs here, you'll feel a stretch in your lower back as you lean forward further.
Repeat the above a few times and then switch sides.
This stretch is very similar to the back flexion stretch, except this uses one leg at a time to stretch more to the sides of your back.
Switch sides and repeat!
This is one of our Director, Andy's favourite stretches for lower back pain - you should hear the noises he makes when he does it...
You should feel a stretch in your lower back/buttocks area. Hold this for 30 secs and switch sides.
