We spend most of our lives breathing to shallow and not through our belly's. Breathing deep for 5 min a day like in the video below, will help with your stress and your back pain.
However you don't need the pillows demonstrated in the video. Lying flat on your back with your feet on the ground will be fine. Try for 2 weeks and notice the difference. Your body will thank you
Shane McLean, ACE Certified Personal Trainer with the T. Boone Pickens YMCA Recently my kids challenged me to wrestle. How could I resist? This is a regular activity in our house and is something we have done countless times before, without incident. However this time was different.As we were tussling, I suddenly felt an intense, sharp stabbing pain in my lower back. My back locked up, and I could barely get up off the ground. My kids looked confused. “Daddy hurt his back again,” I explained. “No more wrestling. Sorry.”
