Back Pain


Hi, i'm a competitive powerlifter, and i have back sore every morning, i stretched each day before going to bed, (i have a good therapeutic bed), i stretch a bit after a dead or squat workout for about 3-5 minutes.

But i think i don't stretch correctly, does some one have exercice or tips to avoid morning back sore? or am i normal to get back sore every morning of my powerlifting life? thanks a lot to help me and my back. If you have pics of stretching it would be nice, thanks again.

Check out Eric Cressey and I's "Magnificent Mobility" DVD in the Biotest Store (top left hand corner). It goes over a ton of active stretches to help you improve your flexibility and mobility. You're bound to be sore after heavy training sessions, but hopefully this will help!

Stay strong


Thank you, i checked his web site and i will probably buy his dvd in the next month.. tahnk you again


I don't know how you feel about chiropractors but it has helped me. I knoe that alot of professional athletes use them to.
