Lower Back Stretching

03/15/2022 9:45 PM | Anonymous member

After a row, a teammate recently asked me for some ways to stretch her lower back, specifically the area right above the two little boney bumps in the lower part of her spine. I call this area the lumbosacral junction, and the disc in this area usually gets more wear than other areas of the spine. This is the area between the last lumbar vertebrae and the sacrum. If you feel stiffness there first thing in the morning or when you get out of the boat, many stretches can help, but these are my favorite:

  1. Self traction: watch this video
  2. Prone press ups: see photo
  3. Prone windshield wipers: watch this video
