  • Lower back strengthening is one of the best things you can do for back pain. We have already posted some massages and stretches for the lower back the last couple of weeks, so it is time to strengthen it. The Windmill exercise is an awesome “twist” on the traditional straight-leg deadlift. The target muscles for this exercise are the hamstrings, glutes, obliques, and #QuadratusLumborum in the lower back (painted on me).

    This exercise is super fun and a little challenging. If you have never done this movement, do it without weight at first. If you have tight hamstrings, you may need to have a wider stance than I do in the video. Start with your feet turned in the same direction that you are going to bend over. Make sure your hips are pointed straight forward though. From there, sit your butt back and to the side, not straight back. As you hinge over, reach your bottom hand for your knee/lower-leg/foot without rounding the lower back. The Quadratus Lumborum will activate and prevent the spine from rounding. This is more of an “isometric” movement for the lower back. .
    .
    You should feel a big stretch in the hamstring of the leg that you are leaning toward. Hinge over as far as you can without your lower back rounding, then squeeze the glute and hamstrings and thrust your pelvis forward to stand up.
    .
    .
    Watch the top hand the entire time if you are using a weight. Watching the weight helps you keep it under control. To challenge yourself, don’t watch the weight, but this is much more advanced.
