Sore Back

I’ve had this problem for two years. Even two days after my ME or DE Squat day, I can’t walk a quarter mile without my back getting tight and sore. I do plenty of situps and reverse hyperextensions, but I can’t fix this problem.

Any suggestions?

Are you stretching your hamstrings after these exercises? Tight hamstrings will pull on your lower back and feel simular to a disc problem. Try stretching after lifting and maybe a little throughout the day, see how you feel! GOOD LUCK!!!
