Ever since i tried to teach myself to squat about a year and a half my back has been hurting. I’ve tried alot of different things to fix. First i made sure my squat form was right, and several people said it was. I would stop squatting for a while, and even stopped lifting for two monthes so see if the pain would go away. No luck. After reading Ian King’s “The pelvis has left the building” aticle i started thinking about it somemore. Usually after standing up for about an hour is when my lower back really starts to hurt. My lower abs seem to want to push themselves, either that or the curvature in my lower back(lumber curve?) seems to want to exaggerate itself. I don’t know if my problem is that my pelvis is not verticle due to some lower back/ab/glute imbalance, or if this is just a plain lower back injury. In his article King to keep the pelvis verticle by keeping the hip flexors long and the abs and glutes tight. I assume this would mean stretching the hip flexors and working the abs and glutes. I’m seriously thinking about going to see an ART specialist in my area if i can find one. Any advice on my problem would be greatly appreciated. The pain isn’t incappacitating, but its bad enough to make standing up for a while a pain in the ass.
