(This is a simple reduction of the recent Kettlebell November 2017 NSCA Journal with recognition to the research performed by Keilman & Hanney et al.)
Having lower back pain designates you into a category that affects millions of American’s lives and is the highest rated reason why workers take days off. Low-back pain can be split between generalized lower back pain (LBP) and specialized (those suffering from degenerative conditions). Those who suffer LBP often do not pursue a positive treatment to strengthen the areas effect (quadratus lumborum (QL) and piriformis muscle (PF)). Avoiding strength training often produces more visits to the physical therapy office or additional days complaining. Most programming for an individual relaying LBP would consist of stabilizing efforts in a prone or supine\position. Recent research by Keilman & Hanney et al offers a different modality: kettlebell swings.
