I'm Jeremy Shore, and this is how to build lower back strength. The lower back muscles play an important role in overall core stability and strength. By building endurance and strength in the lower back muscles you will not only improve performance but also protect the low back. Let me show you some great exercises. Okay first off target the low back and the entire core musculature we are going to start with a plank. Come down on your forearms driving them down into the mat. Keep a long straight body from ear to ankle. Engaging your abs, squeezing your glutes and hold for approximately 20 seconds. To make this more challenging bring the leg out to the side, the knee comes up and down. Just tapping the toe. Alternating sides for 12 to 15 repetitions. Then we can move right into a side plank, elbow directly under the shoulder. Lift the hips up, stack your feet. Keep your hips up and forward. Bring your hand behind your head. And to make this more challenging simply bring the elbow to the knee repeating again for 12 to 15 repetitions. Next target the low back muscles by grabbing a stability ball. Position this right under your stomach. Long straight glutes, relax down. Hands behind the head. Engage the glutes and the low back to lift up your chest and then lower back down. Lift up squeeze, back down. Repeat 12 to 15 repetitions. Finally perform a stability ball roll out to target the core. Sit up tall fingertips on the ball. Going to roll out letting your hips come forward. Long and strong and then roll back in. Straight line from ear to knee keeping your abs and glutes engaged. Repeat 12 to 15 repetitions.
