The amount of back and neck injuries I’ve sustained is actually quite staggering when I think about it. Herniated disk in lower back, hit by car crossing street (3X), injured back lifting weights, fractured neck training jiu-jitsu…it’s a wonder I’m allowed to even leave the house. Due to all these disasters, I’ve tried just about every back strengthening exercise there to try to keep myself right. These two videos implement some of the better back exercises I’ve come across as well as some I’ve never tried before. The first, from Tyler McCoy is a straight yoga practice for increasing back strength. The second, from Ali Kamenova, is a yoga-based bodyweight exercise routine designed for back injury rehab. Do them back 2 back (pun intended) for a low impact, yet still challenging workout.
