In addition to aerobic exercises, anaerobic activity, also referred to as weight training, is necessary to increase muscle tissue and help avoid injuries by having well developed, robust muscles. When the muscles that maintain the back are strong, the spinal column can move correctly, in alignment, not having sustaining damage.

Resistance training workout routines:

  • Back extensions – Lay flat on your belly. With hands laced behind your head and the back and glutes engaged, lift your legs up about an inch or two. Maintain the stretch and gradually go back to the starting position. Relax the muscles, and do it again. Don't elevate your upper torso so high that your back tenses or is painful. Smaller movements are good.
  • Back rows – Develops the muscles of the lower back. This can be carried out in a somewhat bent position, standing up and leaning your upper body a little forward and down with your knees a little bent. Within this position, take hand weights in each hand and, with arms bent and at your side, raise and lower the hand weights gradually lower and then back up. Make sure you hold in your mid-section when you perform this workout.
  • Pelvic tilt – Lay down flat with your legs bent and feet on the ground. Little by little raise the hips while squeezing the glutes. Come back to the start position, relax, and do it again. Just as before, keep your stomach muscles firm through the entire upward thrust, lower, relax at the start position, retense stomach muscles, squeeze and lift glutes off the floor, hold, and go back to the start position.
